Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
Every year, the number of home fires rises dramatically at this time of year. In hopes of reducing the number of tragedies, firefighters and news media across the nation step up their warnings to homeowners. But, what would happen if a fire started then went out before it could flash over to the rest of the house? Burnstop USA, LLC. recently introduced a simple, affordable flame retardant to the U.S. market, making that scenario a very real possibility. The revolutionary fire extinguishing and fire prevention solution represents a technological breakthrough in fire fighting that is long overdue.
Burnstop is a completely non-toxic, environmentally-, ozone- and user-friendly, water-based spray-on liquid that has been successfully distributed in Europe for over 20 years, consistently putting out fires wherever it is used. The nearly odorless, colorless product, manufactured in Payson and Phoenix, Arizona and distributed in the U.S. by Burnstop USA, is available to the general public in both concentrated and ready-to-use forms with formulations for interior and exterior uses. Even highly diluted sprays of Burnstop have proven to be extremely effective in keeping fire from growing by quickly extinguishing its flames before they can spread or kill.
In fire retardants, toxicity is a critical factor. Federal laws for fire retardants will be changing in 2007 to require they be non-toxic. Currently, most products on the market are toxic. Burnstop is not. With formulas that are uniquely different from any other product on the market, it is completely non-toxic and safe enough to use even on infants' toys and clothing.
Burnstop USA owners Steve and Judy Denzler, skeptical of the original developer's claims for the product, conducted their own testing before purchasing the exclusive U.S. rights to the formulas. In one test, they saturated two sets of tinder-dry wood roofing shingles in gasoline after treating one set with a light spray of Burnstop. Placing the two samples side by side and in contact with one another, they then lit both pieces. The untreated sample flared up and was completely incinerated while the fire on the Burnstop-treated sample extinguished itself almost immediately. Although the sample was blackened from the fire, the wood was essentially untouched. "Apply enough heat, and anything can catch fire," commented Steve Denzler about the test, "but this often stops the fire completely. In a situation where every second counts, that is critical. It gives firefighters time to respond to save structures and lives."
Residents of Arizona's pine forested Mogollon Rim area for much of the year, the Denzlers anxiously watched year after year as out-of-control summer wildfires destroyed homes and thousands of acres of forest around them. Burnstop was the solution they discovered when they sought a long-lasting, simple and effective way to protect their endangered home. Having treated their home and adjoining landscaping with their own product, they now enjoy greater peace of mind when wildfires threaten. It is a feeling they hope to give every person who uses Burnstop.
