Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball
Innovation in Fire Safety
The Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball is a revolutionary self-activating device designed to extinguish fire providing a much-needed additional line of defense for fighting fires.
The EFB can be mounted in areas of concern where a possible fire can occur, or it can be thrown, flown, released or launched into an active fire.
Whether in a fixed position or used manually, the patented Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball allows any user to mitigate a fire.
With its unique formulation, the ball deploys within a few seconds of being exposed to flame, and can quickly extinguish a fire.
The Fire Extinguishing Ball is effective on three types of fires:
- Type A: Fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper or textiles
- Type B: Fires involving flammable liquids such as petroleum, diesel, or oils and gases
- Type C: Fires involving live electrical apparatus
The EFB is available with its Standard Bracket in 4″ and 6″ sizes. Perfect for most applications when the ball will be mounted in a stable location.
It is also available with the Engine Room Bracket, designed to hold the ball securely in unstable environments such as engine bays, engine rooms, boats, etc.
Two Primary Applications:
I. PASSIVE USE: The EFB is mounted in areas of concern where a possible fire could occur. This can include areas with switchboard and circuit control systems, electrical appliances, electrical outlets, battery power banks, battery chargers, kitchens, etc.
II. ACTIVE USE: The EFB is thrown or launched into an active fire.
Two Mounting Bracket Styles:
I. STANDARD MOUNTING BRACKET (Red Ball): The bracket is mounted to a wall, door frame, or other stable location, and the EFB is nested in the bracket. If a fire breaks out in that area, the extinguisher will deploy and mitigate the fire. If a fire breaks out nearby, a person can grab the extinguishing ball from its holder and toss it into the flame to extinguish the fire.
II. ENGINE ROOM BRACKET (Blue Ball): These brackets are designed to firmly hold the fire extinguishing ball in place in engine compartments or other areas that are subject to movement, vibration, jostling, etc.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the main applications of the Elide Fire Ball?
Installation Examples: electrical panel, fuse box, washer/ dryer, electrical outlet, kitchen appliances, engine compartments etc.
*All Elide Fire Extinguishing Balls come with mounting bracket & screws for simple installation.
At what temperature does the Elide Fire Ball activate?
Heat DOES NOT activate the Elide Fire Ball. The Elide Fire Ball only activates when it is exposed to flame.
Are there any temperatures where the Elide Fire Ball should not be used?
We recommend storing and installing our products in areas that do not exceed -40F and +200F. Even at temperatures outside this range the Elide Fire Ball will not activate, but the components can begin to degrade and result in a less effective product and activation.
I found cheaper extinguishing balls online. Why are Elide Fire USA products more expensive?
There is only one Patented Fire Extinguishing Ball in the world, and that is our Elide Fire Extinguishing Balls. Cheaper imitation and knockoff products are not produced to the standard of the Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball and have a high rate of malfunction and not working! Simply put they are counterfeit knockoffs that are infringing on our patent. We are continuously working with our legal team to take down and remove these products from the internet.
Can I replace my fire extinguisher with an Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball?
No! The Elide Fire Ball is not meant to be a replacement for any of your existing fire safety and suppression tools. The Elide Fire Ball is meant to be an added layer of fire safety and suppression in addition to what is already required and mandated by law.
Is the activation process dangerous? Can I be hurt if I am close by when it activates?
No, the activation process is not dangerous. Within 3-10 seconds of activating you will hear a loud noise which also acts as an alert system to notify you that there is an active fire situation. The Elide Fire Ball's polystyrene shell is light weight and the dry chemical inside is Non-Toxic and Eco-friendly.
Does my Elide Fire Ball need to be refilled or serviced?
No! The Elide Fire Ball is not pressurized and does not require any maintenance or service. Each ball is 5 year warranted (by Elide Fire USA) and has a shelf life of 7+ Years. (Note that the Blue all weather product carries a 3-year warranty with a shelf life of 5+ years)
Are Elide Fire USA products certified?
Unfortunately Elide Fire USA products are currently not certified by US agencies. Elide Fire has won multiple awards worldwide and received certifications in various other countries. The US certification will be coming soon!
Certification is a complicated process and we are taking steps to gain our US certification.
