STAT-X

The objective is always to save lives and property. But innovative fire protection does more. It combines science and economics. A superior, environmentally friendly fire suppressant. Easier and more cost-effective installations. Advanced methods for protecting more challenging applications.

The Stat-X family of fire suppression systems is based on aerosol technology developed in the space program, applied to fire protection by an American team of engineers and manufactured to ISO 9001:2000 standards in the USA. The Stat-X fire suppressant is a patented potassium-based aerosol that suppresses fire by chemically interfering with the free radicals of flame. It is ecologically safe, ten times as effective as halon replacements with zero ozone depletion and no global warming potential..

The Stat-X application technology requires no pressure vessels, manifolds, nozzles or pipe work, factors which result in significant installation and maintenance savings to our customers. Stat-X fire suppression systems are available in various configurations.

Background

English Heritage 2010 'one thatched property fire per week'. We want to help reduce these figures.
.
Thatch fires can start in 3 main areas:

Chimney – heat transfer
External sparks
Internal – electrical

but thatch fires are notoriously hard to fight:

Nature of thatch is to repell water
Thatch can smoulder for a long time before the fire becomes apparent.
The speed and the heat of the burning thatch
The dryness of the thatch in the loft space
Fighting fire with water is messy and causes additional damage to property

This is why early detection, alarm and suppression is so beneficial.

The losses:

Financial – rebuild and insurance premiums
Heritage – irreplaceable
