“There is now a clear and increasing body of evidence to show that mobility scooters present a fire risk in themselves, often while charging, which can result in the production of quantities of smoke and heat”.
Any form of rechargeable device left on charge unattended has the potential to be a fire risk. Mobility scooter fires have increased many fold with their increasing popularity.
For manual fire extinguishing at the very early stages of fire, the Lith-EX fire extinguisher is designed to cool and extinguish using its patented environmentally friendly contents, called aqueous vermiculite.
For 24 hour monitoring of unmanned charging within covered charging cocoons or bays, FirePro systems can be configured to not only detect an increase in temperature but will also, at very low cost, extinguish a fire, all as a low cost stand-alone solution.
For automatic linkage to the local fire alarm system and shutdown of charging power, the FirePro FPC-2 controller (click here for detail) may be used to action bespoke cause and effect instructions.
