As we have recently covered on our website, where ever there are Lithium-ion batteries in use, especially within public spaces or commercial buildings, it is essential to ensure that the correct type of fire extinguisher is available should a fire break out.
A recent video further highlights just how intense the fire from a Lithium-ion battery can be. Shown here was a fire that started from an e-Bike in The Ilac, which quickly erupts with ferocity that could potentially be a significant danger to anyone near by.
High powered lithium-ion devices such as e-Scooters and e-Bikes are quite common now, so where these devices are stored and charged, extra consideration should be given to ensuring that the correct type of extinguisher is available. Lithium-ion is a Class B fire, so a standard ABC or Dry Powder fire extinguisher should be used.
FASS are able to supply a full range of Dry Powder extinguishers which are fully commissioned and therefor insurance approved for your building, on both traditional red colour or chrome, gold or bronze finishes (Contempo range). In addition we also offer full fire safety training courses so your staff are trained in how to safely use and extinguisher a fire with an extinguisher.
