Fire Isolator

IRE ISOLATOR by  T-ISS, is a concept for isolating and fighting EV car fires based on best practices and live testing. In general, there is not one single solution to extinguish or control EV car fires, as all firefighters who have dealt with these types of car fires will be able to confirm.

Effectively isolating and fighting EV car fires takes several different methods because of the lithium-ion batteries on board of EV cars. The EV car will need to end up submerged in water in a container, but with the FIRE ISOLATOR concept, there is a lot that can be done beforehand to minimize the damages.

Fighting EV car fires with the Fire Isolator concept has been thoroughly tested and proven to be effective.

Additional information

The FIRE ISOLATOR Concept consists of several tested and proven elements that, when used together, deliver the best results when fighting EV-fires in car parks, garages or on ferries:

  • The use of a high temperature resistant car Fire Blanket (up to 1600 degrees C°) in order to take away the oxygen, slowly smothering the fire.
  • The use of aerosol units, which interrupts the chemical chain reactions occurring in the flames and suppresses the fire resulting in further temperature reduction.
  • The use of a water mist lance for direct insertion into the battery of the EV car.
  • Thermal imaging camera.
  • A dipping container in which the EV car needs to be submerged (for probably several days).
  • Training in this concept.
