We’ve all seen the reports: A fire breaks out in the garage of a home in Anytown, with the contents being written off as a total loss. “Mr. Smith had been working on his coveted two-door Widget when a spark ignited a canister of flammable liquid.” Generally spoken, but seldom written, is the fact that most garage fires can be quickly suppressed if one simple little device is available: a fire extinguisher. Combustible fumes from all those chemicals become more hazardous during the winter, when garages are sealed from the raging outdoor elements. If you think it can’t happen to you, you might find yourself in the middle of a major problem.
Before you start working on your new winter project, consider the expanded line of HalGuard “clean agent” fire extinguishers from H3R Performance. Previously available in 1- and 2.5-pound hand-held units, six larger units are now available for your garage. Five, 11- and 15.5-pound hand portable sizes are offered in red, are USCG approved and meet DOT requirements for the heavy-duty truck and RV market, as well. The 5-pound unit is also available in chrome. Two new wheeled extinguishers are also available in 65- and 150-pound sizes.
The HalGuard extinguishers do not leave a messy residue (perfect for protecting your classic or muscle car), do not conduct electricity and are effective against flammable liquid fires. They are also made in the U.S.A. For detailed information, visit www.h3rperformance.com or call 800-249-4289.
