Water isn't the only automatic fire suppression, thanks to a new invention!
CALLING ALL FIREFIGHTERS, FIRE PREVENTION SPECIALISTS, AND INSURANCE PROFESSIONALS - WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Government building code officials and home builder associations need to be informed that water sprinklers are no longer the only option to automatically suppress a residential fire, thanks to a new Canadian invention that is now ready for public release.
For years, the debate between home builder associations and the fire safety community has been underway regarding the cost-effectiveness of residential water sprinklers. A simple Google search for "residential sprinklers debate" will yield many articles, discussions, and opinions on the matter, such as http://www.nfsa.tv/info_items/fire_safety_resident....
However, this has been largely an "either/or" debate; either residential water sprinklers are mandated or they aren't. The solution may reside with neither as the solution, since an alternative solution has recently emerged that satisfies both sides of the argument - fire safety and cost effectiveness, without water damage in case of an incident.
The HAVEN "automatic fire extinguisher", as it is being referred to, requires no water or electricity, costs a tiny fraction of wet suppression installation and maintenance costs (of which, the costs purported by the NFPA are grossly underestimated at $1.35/sq. ft, when in reality the retrofit cost for an existing home is $18+/sq. ft in an ideal installation scenario), and is simple to install by the average home owner. To see a video of its effectiveness on two typical house fires (kitchen and living room) watch the 3-min video at www.HavenFireSafety.com
There is now a viable alternative on the market with the HAVEN product that all fire and home builder personnel need to be aware of to help save lives and property from the devastating aftermath of residential fires. Please help us raise awareness and add your comments and voice to this very important and urgent discussion.
