FIREBLOCK AGRI

FIREBLOCK AGRI is a unique firefighting gel and fire retardant that can be used to fight fires directly or be used as a fire retardant by spraying the non-burnt areas (i.e. grass bush ) with a protective layer of gel. It can be used on any Class A fires
NOT FOR USE ON ELECTRICAL OR CHEMICAL FIRES.

FIREBLOCK Agri is not chemical in composition, and is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable, ensuring that it is environmentally friendly.

FIREBLOCK Agri is supplied in powder form (1,25 kg resealable bag). The powder is then mixed with water as per the instructions on the packaging, until a reaction occurs, and a consistency similar to a gel-like substance is achieved.

Fire Fighting Gel

As a fire fighting gel it is sprayed directly into the fire. Fireblock AGRI has exceptional properties that cool the fires down drastically and kills it instantly, preventing embers from reigniting. The product goes approximately 6 times further than conventional water – so results in less water, fuel and labour required to fight a fire. (mix at a ratio of 1000l / 1.25kg)

Fire Retardant

FIREBLOCK AGRI is an excellent product to use as fire breaks, it can be sprayed quick and easily, along a line and the non-sprayed area is then light. The fire stops on reaching the sprayed area, making this an amazingly easy way to control the fire. (mixes as a ratio of 600l / 1.25kg)

FIREBLOCK AGRI can be sprayed onto thatch roofs before an oncoming fire reaches the area, FIREBLOCK AGRI will protect the thatch from catching alight even if burning embers fall on it. THIS IS NOT A LONG LASTING PROTECTION and is used on imminent fires only.
