Legionella Free Water Mist Fire Extinguisher

Jewel Saffire have received independent third party certification that our ground breaking new Water Mist extinguisher is legionella free.

Working in partnership with Euro Environmental Ltd in Doncaster an independent testing company and specialists in testing for legionella Jewel Saffire submitted samples of 1 Litre, 3 Litre and 6 Litre extinguishers in the water mist product range which were tested after 6 months and also 12 months. The results of both tests proved that the water in the extinguishers was free from legionella.

In a real fire situation the water turns to steam and will evaporate but some people express concerns for breathing in the fine water mist droplets if extinguishers are misused or used in none fire situations.

'This is an important part of our development of the water mist extinguisher and this testing process is on-going' explains Mike Ditanna Director Jewel Saffire. 'End users with particular concerns about legionella can now be re assured that after 12 months the products are free from Legionella and they can ask their service and maintenance providers to change the water during the annual service and maintenance inspection if they want peace of mind beyond 12 months'

South Coast University adopts revolutionary fire extinguisher.

South Coast University adopts revolutionary fire extinguisher.

A South Coast university has become among the first to take advantage of revolutionary new technology in fire extinguishers.
The British produced E-Series extinguisher, made by Nottinghamshire specialists, Jewel Fire, works on the basis of producing a super-fine mist as a way of extinguishing a range of fires, negating the need for any public place to carry multiple extinguishers.

The University of Sussex has now become the first UK University, with 52 installed and commission serviced by Pyrotec Fire Protection Ltd for its newly-constructed academic site in Brighton.
The University of Sussex facilities head of maintenance is Neil Troak. He said: 'Once we were introduced to the extinguisher and saw it perform in tests against all types of fire situations, there seemed little in our way in introducing the E-series as the extinguisher of choice here.
'The number one priority remains the safety of our 13,000 students and staff and this is an extinguisher we believe offers the quickest and simplest way to put out fires.

The fact that we were able to install one simple water mist extinguisher instead of the usual foam and carbon dioxide units in every location of the building presented substantial long-term cost savings for us.'

With the extinguisher now having passed a number of safety tests, including receiving its British Safety Standards Kite Mark, it is anticipated a number of other education establishments across the UK may follow suit.

It works in a similar way to traditional extinguishers, but produces a super-fine 'dry' mist to smother most types of fires, including chip pans and even electrical fires.
Keith Holmes, technical director at Jewel Fire, said: 'We are thrilled to see Sussex University share our vision of providing simplified, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly extinguisher solutions.'

'This has taken some time for us to develop, but we truly believe we have a product that will start to change the thinking behind common fire safety in public arenas, offices and workspaces up and down the country.'

Steve Kingsnorth, Managing director of Pyrotec Fire Protection Ltd introduced the University of Sussex to the new E-Series extinguisher. He said: 'The E-series will make a big impact on the fire safety on most buildings throughout the UK.

'As well as the long-term cost savings, eco-credentials play a major part too. The disposal of the previous foam and Co2 units, and their on-going service requirements, can be harmful to the environment. Water units like this carry no such concerns.'

Jewel Fire and its parent company, Jewel Saffire, is located just outside Nottingham and is one of the largest independent trade manufacturer of fire products in the UK.

Hotel fire easily handled by new type of extinguisher

When fire broke out in The Snoozebox Marquee, a trained member of staff was able to quickly and safely put it out using a water mist fire extinguisher.

The fire started when the guest put a croissant inside a toaster. 'It was really too big for the toaster and soon caught fire,' explained Tom Dodson, Project Manager, Snoozebox.

'Fortunately we had equipped the marquee with a water mist fire extinguisher that safely smothered the flames without causing any damage to the room,which may have been the case if we had installed a foam or powder extinguisher. And amazingly, after we had it inspected and PAT tested, the toaster was put back into service!'
'Water mist extinguishers have a supersonic nozzle that disperses microscopic 'dry' water mist particles to suppress fires and extinguish burning materials quickly and easily,' explains Harry Dewick-Eisele, Managing Director of Safelincs, who supplied the product. 'They can be used on just about every type of fire and are 100% environmentally friendly, so there are no nasty fumes or residues to contend with and the water mist protects the user from heat.'

For further information about this particular case, please contact Safelincs at:
