Is the extinguisher suited for all fire types?
Reinoldmax quickly and efficiently puts out almost every fire type, including class A (solid materials), class B (flammable liquids and gasses), class C (1000V or less electrical appliances) and class K (cooking oils and greases).
What are the maintenance requirements?
Reinoldmax requires no inspection or maintenance. It is however recommended to check the pressure once a year after the 3-year warranty expiration date.
How can I safely dispose of the container after usage or after the expiration date?
Thoroughly empty the container and remove the inner pressure, then place in the recycling bin, as you would with any other aerosol spray container.
Is the product approved and can it legally replace a conventional chemical fire extinguisher?
The Reinoldmax product conforms to the Canadian commercialization standards but has not yet been certified as a portable fire extinguisher (NFPA 10 standard). It therefore cannot replace a conventional chemical fire extinguisher in locations where the law requires the presence of an approved fire extinguisher.
Is the product toxic? Non
The Reinoldmax foam is non-toxic and harmless for both the health and environment. The product causes no skin irritation. You can even spray the product directly on an ignited person. In case of inhalation or contact with the eyes, simply rinse the foam with fresh water.
Is the product corrosive? Non
Contrary to chemical fire extinguishers, the eco-friendly Reinoldmax foam is non-corrosive and will not damage to electrical appliances and equipment. Once the piece of equipement can be safely cleaned, simply use a dry cloth to wipe the foam. However, the mixture contains water and could damage the electronic components of your appliances.
