Guys, any one intrested in the CeaseFire fire extinguisher ? Contacted the BLR office, they said Rs 1500/- per can, 650 gm, with B&W. Type - ABCD. 5 year warranty & no maintenance. He is quoting a 10% off for 5 or more pieces. If we have sufficient numbers, we could try for more.

@gigy, which is the 2 kg cylinder you mentioned ?

Am sure it can be ordered from them but going by what our members have experienced with their service, am not too sure if it will be delivered or if at all we get some feedback from them.

Hey Karthik,

I recall a model of Fire Extinguisher called "Cease Fire" while I was in India , It was basically a very handy unit intended for the house. I am sure you can have a stand/holder fabricated. Here in Bahrain the Fire Extinguisher is placed below the front right seat (Left hand driven cars). Please do check with the experts on what type is suitable for the car (i.e.) there are various types such as wet, dry, riser and so on.

good luck pal

An original cease-fire should cost you around 1000-1200 bucks here in Delhi. The fake one's or the not so good one's come in for around 600 Rs.
Just make sure that it's in your easy reach. Normally the dealers attach it on the A-pillar. However, what i've done is put it in the glove box. Works for me better.
These normally have a warranty of about 10 years. Just pray that you never get a chance to use it

Cheers!

I didn't know about this warranty bit. You mean to say that in case the extinguisher is unable to work within the 10 year period when the car catches fire, then they will replace the device or er ahem.. the car..

Cynicism apart, somewhere I heard that you need to recharge the fire extinguishing chemical every two years or so to work in emergencies..

Hi kathik,

Just checked a few cars here and they all have "Dry powder: ABC, BC (above 50 to 70%)" type of extinguishers. and lets hope you never have to use it though.

Best Regards,

but in case the fire extinguisher doesn't work, I guess it'll be a lot more people who'll bear the wrath than the fire-extinguisher dealer.

I guess that's what they tell us at the fire-safety class but this dealer i picked it up from, said that it would hold good for 10 years. I checked this on the ceasefire website as well and this is what is said:

Guaranteed for 5 years. You can test an extinguisher only once when you ctually put out a fire. That's why Ceasefire is designed to be as reliable on the last day of its shelf life as the first. It needs no refilling, and no maintenance. Yet is backed by a nationwide service network.

Gd- We both stand corrected

Hope this helps
Cheers!

Default Fire Retardant ?

Was browsing through the local big bazaar and saw some red cans marked Fire Retardant in the auto section. Will they work in an emergency , or do i need proper fire extinguishers

I have seen some wood suppliers use this for special applications. It basically gives an X material a higher level of resistance to catching fire.

Entirely different from fire extinguishers.

Greenhorn,

I'm guessing here - maybe for legal reasons (which country was it manufactured in?) they could not call it a "fire extinguisher" and hence it had to be called a fire retardant since there was no guarantee it would entirely extinguish the fire, but guaranteed to retard it?

Alternatively, was it for a special type of fire (lithium (?)) that might be hard to extinguish but easier to slow down spreading?
