EnviroBurst Automatic Fire Suppression System consists of a sealed thermoplastic tube which begins to soften when exposed to high temperatures. Once the fire reaches 70°c the tube will burst, releasing a liquid extinguishant into the heart of the fire.
Ideal for protecting enclosed areas which pose a high risk of igniting or overheating, such as distribution boards or consumer units. It is compact and lightweight, therefore easily adaptable to a wide range of purposes. Specially designed to extinguish fires in the early stages, offering full passive fire protection. In many cases consumer units, as well as the wiring, will take only minimal damage and therefore wont require replacing.
The tube units are supplied with fixing clips, nuts and bolts. Fixings should be placed about 30-40 mm from both ends.
Take off the lid, drill 2 holes near the top. Fit the clips around the tube & bolt to the inside of the lid. Refit the lid back.
Most standard consumer units up to 250 mm wide will only require EBU1. For larger distribution boards, use EBU2 (300 mm wide).
This is the quickest and safest way of stopping a fire in consumer units.
