LI-ION FIRE INTERVENTION MASK
The Li-ion Fire Intervention Mask, is a protective breathing and face mask designed to safeguard against the risks associated with lithium-ion fires and incidents.
The LIFM is manufactured to the highest quality and performance standards and is designed to support a safe means of escape for people from a thermal runaway event. The LIFM protects trained people using our F-500EA Li-ion Battery fire extinguishers and F-500EA fixed automatic fire protection systems.
Lithium-Ion Evacuation & Escape Mask
FACT: Lithium-ion batteries and cells power various electronic equipment, tools, toys and transportation means, but they carry inherent risks.
PROBLEM: When they fail, Li-ion batteries can emit a large quantity of toxic, harmful gas and smoke which impedes a safe means of escape which can lead to entrapment and an inability to escape.
SOLUTION: The LFIM provides 15 minutes of protection against toxic gases emitted by lithium-ion batteries and cells. It also shields the face from high-speed particles generated during lithium-ion battery explosions. LFIM is a valuable addition to F500 extinguishing systems, offering optimal protection for those exposed to lithium-ion battery risks. The mask is equipped with filters that protect against harmful substances released in fires, including CO2, carbon monoxide, HF, HCL, LiOH, hydrocarbons, ammonia, SO2, soot, and particles.
Applications & Suitability
FACT: Toxic and flammable gases generated by Lithium Batteries in thermal runaway are extremely harmful to people.
PROBLEM: Enabling a safe escape from a Lithium Ion Battery fire in a residential or work place setting can frequently require short term protection from toxic off-gases that may block an otherwise viable means of escape. Whilst relevant to all occupants of a building this becomes more urgent for people with mobility issues and those in charge of evacuating people. Specially trained persons utilising the Equipro F-500EA fire extinguishers will also benefit from the added protection provided by the LFIM.
SOLUTION: Provide personnel and the public with an individual LFIM to be used in an evacuation in a premises where Lion-Batteries and toxic gases and smoke are a risk. This measure will enhance safe evacuations of people from the risks associated with a Li-ion battery fire.
Certification & Quality
FACT: Li-ion Battery Fire Intervention Masks are critical life safety devices. It is vital that they are manufactured to the highest quality standards.
PROBLEM: Emergency situations are unpredictable but it is imperative that when needed the Lithium Fire Intervention Mask (LIFM) is ready and able to do its job - helping people of all abilities to escape a Li-ion Battery fire.
SOLUTION: The LIFM is a unique product in Europe designed to address Lithium-ion battery hazard concerns relating to means of escape. It is manufactured to the highest quality standards.
