Both the Sachet and the Throwable extinguishers come with holders to enable them to be attached to a suitable surface.
The Kitchen Sachet comes with a magnetic strip to attach it to the front of a fridge, so that it is immediately on hand should a cooking oil fire occur. These Sachets will extinguish a cooking oil fire in a pan of up to 30cm in diameter; however they can even deal with very small oil fires, such as a frying pan or wok and can stop a small incident becoming a major hazard.
The innovative formula in these sachets rapidly smothers the fire and quickly saponifies the oil. Thereby, lessening the amount of hazardous, room-damaging black smoke and residue given off by the fire. The product is non-toxic, environmentally-friendly and, once completely cooled, the pan can be washed in the usual manner and reused.
Recently, some Fire & Rescue Services have reported that when using fire blankets on oil-pan fires, further problems have arisen. The first issue is that when using a fire blanket, people are sometimes hesitant about placing the blanket over the burning pan, not completely covering the pan or lifting the blanket off to check if the fire is out. The second problem is from the weight of the excess of fire blanket dragging the pan to the edge of the stove and/or tipping it up, spilling its boiling contents over the user or possibly spreading the fire.
The Throwable extinguisher has a neat little holder, and at only 20cm tall, the extinguisher can be mounted at the correct height by the final exit. Unlike conventional extinguishers, the user would simply pick the Throwable up on their way out and then throw it back into the fire. They do not need to remain in the area as they would to discharge a "normal" fire extinguisher.
The special formula utilised in these revolutionary Throwable extinguishers is, (like the Kitchen Sachet), non-toxic and environmentally-friendly. The average healthy person would not be overcome or "snuffed-out" by using this device in a confined area if they were trapped in a room. On the contrary, this clever device would actually lessen the amount of dangerous smoke and reduce the flames to allow someone the chance of escaping.
In fact, the Throwable extinguishers are so effective and simple to use, that in Korea (other countries to follow suit shortly), it has been passed as law that centres for children and the elderly (schools and care homes) must have Throwable-type extinguishers as at least 50% of their total number of extinguishers. (Republic of Korea - Executive Order: 19748)
