What was the need?
Founded in 2010, The English Electric Motorcycle Company (EEMC) offers a full range of electric on-road and off-road motorcycles and mopeds.
The owner of the business was concerned about the Lithium-ion battery fire risk, particularly since a few years ago one manufacturer did have issues with faulty batteries which resulted in several motorbike fires.
The business also has a repairs section, so there was the need to cover the fire risk there too.
Lith-Ex extinguisher units were fitted, along with signs, within the works van and the workshop for health and safety reasons and the protection of EEMC staff.
EEMC liked the idea of the AVD being environmentally friendly and were impressed with the thermal runaway barrier provided by the Lithium-ion Battery Fire Extinguisher. They appreciated Firechief as a quality brand with a proven track record within the fire industry and were impressed with the knowledge of the issue of Lithium-ion battery fires.
Our Firechief Lithium-ion Battery Safety Range includes Lithium-ion Battery Fire Extinguishers, fire blankets, suppression kits and fire resistant containers, these products are designed to put out and keep out Lithium-ion battery fires.
