Firechief is delighted to announce that Scutum London Ltd has signed up to become an Authorised Distributor of the Firechief Lithium Battery Safety Range (LBR).
Lithium-ion batteries continue to present a more frequent fire hazard each day as the number of consumer and industrial goods powered by them increases and Lithium Battery fires are now recognised as a serious Health & Safety issue by many, including Transport for London who have banned all e-scooters and bikes from the network.
Firechief Lith-Ex extinguishers contain Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion (AVD), a revolutionary fire extinguishing agent and have been designed to suppress Lithium battery fires in their infancy before they develop into a fully established fire. They can also be used to protect against fires where batteries are under charge and stored; for example, goods distribution, battery collection bins, battery recycling locations, public services and battery charging stations.
The Firechief Lithium Battery Safety Range also includes Heavy Duty Lithium Battery Fire Blankets, Fire Suppression Kits and Fire-Resistant Containers which are designed for the safe storage and transit of Lithium batteries and the smaller devices which contain them.
Alan Lansdell, General Manager of Scutum London commented: ‘Firechief Lith-Ex is the only extinguisher which has been thoroughly tested on lithium battery fires. The team at Firechief are very knowledgeable on this subject and have provided us with excellent training and answers to all our questions. This has given us the confidence to become a Firechief LBR authorised distributor and to advise, recommend and sell the product range to our customers to help mitigate the growing risk posed by lithium battery fires.’
Firechief Global’s Managing Director Laurie Pollard said: “We look forward to working with Scutum London in growing awareness and sales of this exciting new product range. All the companies who join our network of authorised Firechief Lithium Battery Safety Range distributors have been selected to provide our product range with new routes to market.”
