Halon Fire Extinguisher

I ordered one of these today. I plan to install in the fridge compartment.

Outside of the coach in the refrigerator compartment.

Fire Fight Products supplemental fire systems

Halon Fire Extinguisher SS 30 Auto Deploy 90 Degree Head | eBay

I paid $160 for the model with the 90 degree end.

Ok, now it makes sense. I just looked up your unit and as big as it is it should have a residential sprinkler system already built into it. Good luck with it and hope you never have to use it.

Another great place to mount this is if you have a motorhome with a built in generator is to mount on top of the generator box. Halon is a great product. Too bad they placed so much restrictions on its use. I used to design and install systems for large computer rooms. They do not leave any powder or and residue behind. But they put out a fire so quick your head will spin.


Here is a video to show what it does with nothing damaged othher than the system having to be refilled. This was an accident not a fire video.

Great video. Several years ago I was in our TV studio when technician servicing unit triggered it. No warning or chance to abort. Other than scaring me half to death, I survived with no ill effects. Equipment, including computers, was fine also.
