What was the need?
Launched in April 2018, UKRI is a public body sponsored by the Department for Business and Energy.
The fire team at UKRI approached Firechief for information on the Lith-Ex portable extinguishers and Battery Fire Suppression Kits. UKRI had had several Lithium-ion battery fires in laptops and batteries whilst being transported, hence the need for a product to safeguard against this risk.
The organisation was impressed with the Firechief Fire Suppression Kit, as the ideal solution for the effective control and suppression of Lithium-ion battery fires. The UKRI team use the bags within their buildings and when Lithium-ion batteries need to be transported.
Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers were also chosen due to them being environmentally friendly and their proven track record - including test results - of the AVD in stopping thermal runaway.
The Firechief Lith-Ex Fire Suppression Kits solved the risk issue UKRI had, providing a trustworthy safeguard against small battery fires and security to employees when transporting devices with Lithium-ion batteries.
The Firechief brand was recognized as a market leader and UKRI were impressed with the excellent customer service and product knowledge of the team.
