Fire Protection Online Resolves Safety Concerns with CO2 Fire Extinguishers
Date:2/15/2010

The leading fire protection website now offers non-magnetic CO2 fire extinguishers and extinguishers with frost-free horns.

Dartford, Kent (PRWEB) February 15, 2010 -- Fire extinguishers are there for our safety, but few people know that many CO2 fire extinguishers actually pose some safety hazards of their own: If incorrectly handled during operation, the freezing-cold CO2 expelled from the extinguisher can cause painful frost burns on the user's hands.

This serious safety concern inspired Fire Protection Online, the leading fire protection retailer, to offer CO2 fire extinguishers with frost-free horns. "Frost-free horns are now standard on all of our CO2 fire extinguishers," said Jason Miller, sales manager of Fire Protection Online. "Our customers don't have to pay anything extra for this important safety feature."

Fire Protection Online's frost-free horns are designed so that the user can safely follow their natural inclination to hold the horn during operation. This makes it easier and less confusing to operate a CO2 fire extinguisher, minimizing the need for careful employee training.

Not only does this make employees safer, it also protects the employer. "In the past, if they didn't want to be held responsible for injuries to their workers, employers had to be careful to train everyone on how to correctly operate a CO2 fire extinguisher," Miller said. "The frost-free horn completely eliminates that concern."

Fire Protection Online has also introduced non-magnetic CO2 fire extinguishers for use near mri scanners and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers. With normal extinguishers, personnel in these settings must wait for the equipment to demagnetize before they can enter and put out the fire. With a non-magnetic extinguisher, however, personnel will be able to enter the room more quickly to put out the fire, reducing the risk of injury or damage to extremely expensive and vital equipment.

"Our non-magnetic extinguishers eliminate the time-delay between shutting down the equipment and entering to put out the fire," Miller said. "These extinguishers are a must for all hospitals and NMR rooms."
