We have developed an innovative and creative product, easy to use by everyone, to increase fire safety. The product is comparable to a throwable fire extinguisher. It is a breakable container filled with a fire extinguishing solution. This will allow the container to shatter, dispersing the extinguishing liquid around the point of impact. The liquid is a solution of water and certain fire extinguishing chemicals, which are proven to be effective and safe on touch. The product will be shattered when thrown, but will not break when accidentally tossed over.
Furthermore, the product holds the largest volume possible, so it’ll be able to extinguish the largest fire, but must be still light enough to be easily throwable. The design of the product balances the volume, the design and the easiness to throw. The product is easily recognised as a fire extinguisher, however, it is not unappealing like the standard fire extinguisher, which would result in the owner putting the product somewhere out of sight and quite likely out of reach. In other words, because of the aesthetic design, this will make sure that people will not stock it away and the product will be within arm’s reach.
This, in turn, results in a slower response time and the fire being extinguished faster. This in turn results in less damage occurring during the fire, resulting in a lower cost associated with the fire. Finally, another advantage in comparison to the standard fire extinguisher is that people will be able to place our product in every house and even in every room, whereas the standard fire extinguisher often is only found on every floor or even only in the hall of the building. This increases fire safety at all levels.
