Fire Suppression for Airstream

Is anyone using the PROTENG automatic fire suppression and detection device?

They are tubes filled with a fire suppression chemical that instantly puts out a fire when the tube is exposed to fire or 200 degrees. They come in different lengths.

You place in back of refrigerator, hot water tank, Batteries, etc., and I could see placing a long tube in the roof to. If a fire starts, the tube opens and extinguishes the fire.

May be my next investment...

Fire Suppression for Airstream

Any idea of cost? Website does not seem to have that info.

Found something similar on Amazon:

Bob, what if you were not there to put out the fire? What if the fire starts behind the refrigerator? Think of the damage saved if the tube put it out instantly....

Regarding the cost I have a call into them to find out....

I am very interested also. I went to their website and to a the other youtube video. Very interesting product. Pure gas with no residue. That is perfect for an RV. Hope the prices are not too high!

"behind the refrigerator" can easily exceed 200 degrees without a fire. I'm not going to say "try touching the heating coils on the back of your fridge sometime," but if you do, you *will* get burned. I'd say interior temps (at least the skins, if not other things) can also get pretty close to that depending on your rig's insulation and the particular (Texas?) day. Just something to think about!

If it would go off when you were in the camper you might get extinguished.

I contacted another company called Fireslayer that has a similar product. They are selling on Amazon. Currently, they seem to only make a 6' model for $155.

These tubes use Dupont FE-36 which is the replacement for gas in air conditioners that will not hurt the environment. This may be the reason for the high cost. The gas is very expensive. It does tell me that they should have a long usable life and maybe a one time purchase for your trailer. The gas is just that, a gas. It does not contain any powder and only displaces the oxygen while producing cool water droplets. It is an approved class a,b,c solution.

I am very interested in this for my trailer. My very small First alert fire extinguisher included with my trailer seems a bit inadequate for a fire like we've recently seen in a recent thread. Also, who's gonna get the extinguisher out when you are not there.

I posted a link to it on Amazon in #3 above.
