Fires big or small are dangerous and fire related accidents and disasters are more common than you may think. Fire safety procedures like extinguishers and alarms are not always enough to arrest the spread of fire. Fire can cause damage to life and property, therefore fire safety is something which is of utmost importance.
Traditional fire extinguishers are heavy and hard to activate; therefore during an emergency not all people may have the strength or the presence of mind to effectively use it to fight fire. Elide fire presents a much simpler solution.
Elide fire is a fire extinguishing ball. In the case of a fire, all you have to do is throw the ball into the fire. It activates within three seconds with a loud sound and disperses chemicals into the fire to douse it.
As unbelievable as it may sound it is a reality. The Elide fireball activates as soon as it comes into contact with the fire source. The loud noise it makes acts as a fire alarm to effectively warn people about the fire.
Traditional fire extinguishers are bulky and difficult to use. Most people don’t know how to activate a fire extinguisher and therefore are at a great risk in case of a fire related crisis. These extinguishers also require the user to go very close to the source of the fire which may be harmful to the health of the individual.
Going close to the fire source puts the individual at risk of getting burnt from indirect heat or inhalation of smoke. These may have long-term consequences and cause respiratory problems and damage to the skin tissues.
Elide fire balls are self-activating and therefore pose no threat to an individual. They can be placed in areas which are fire prone such as in the kitchen or near the electrical circuit box. The balls have a product life span of up to 5 years and need no inspection or special training for its operation.

The ball has a sound level of 101-140 decibels which is loud enough to warn anyone in the vicinity of the fire.
