Press Release Summary:
FIRE Panel(TM) helps prevent fires caused by rear-end collisions by encasing vehicle's fuel tank with custom-formed, 3D, polymer panel that contains fire-suppressing powder. Unaffected by low-speed accidents, system's shape wraps around sides of fuel tank to provide additional protection during skewed angle collisions. Upon impact, panel shatters, releases powder, and renders space around tank inert, preventing ignition of fuel or suppressing fire.
Original Press Release:
Vehicular Fire Protection System Wraps Fuel Tank with Fire Suppressing Powder
A new, patented vehicular fire protection system, based upon a proven military technology, that has been adapted for use in police vehicles, buses, and race cars, is being introduced by F.I.R.E. Panel LLC, of Scottsdale, Arizona.
FIRE Panel(TM) Vehicular Fire Protection Systems help prevent fires caused by rear end collisions by encasing the fuel tank with a custom formed polymer panel containing a fire-suppressing powder. Upon impact, the panel shatters, releases the powder, and renders the space around the tank "inert," thereby preventing the ignition of fuel or quickly suppressing a fire.
Unaffected by typical low speed accidents, FIRE Panel(TM) Vehicular Fire Protection Systems feature a three-dimensional shape that allows it to wrap around the sides of a fuel tank, providing additional fire protection for the tank during a collision that comes from a skewed angle. These systems work automatically, have no moving parts, and can make the difference between a devastating fire and a survivable crash, claims the firm.
FIRE Panel(TM) Vehicular Fire Protection Systems are priced from $495 (list), depending upon size and quantity. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.
