Firechief Lithium-ion Battery Safety Range
The Lithium-ion Battery Safety Range contains Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion (AVD), a revolutionary fire extinguishing agent designed to stop Lithium-ion battery fires fast.
Firechief Lith-Ex Fire Extinguishers are designed to suppress Lithium-ion battery fires in their infancy before developing into a fully established fire. They can also be used to protect against fires where batteries are stored or charged.
The Firechief Heavy Duty Lithium-ion Battery Fire Blankets, Fire Suppression Kits and Fire Resistant Containers are designed for the safe storage and transit of Lithium-ion batteries and the smaller devices which contain them.
Why are Lithium-ion batteries a fire risk?
Lithium-ion (also known as Li-ion) batteries are a common part of everyday life, at home and at work. They are used in many industries and in a wide range of applications including power tools, computers, personal devices, scooters and e-bikes, electric vehicles, forklift trucks, and battery energy storage systems. The dangers they pose are prominent as Lithium-ion battery fire hazards can be caused by physical impact, overheating, internal cell failure, short circuits, or manufacturing defects.
