HalGuard is no ordinary fire extinguisher. It contains an electrically non-conductive "clean" extinguishing agent that rapidly turns into a gas. The clean agent used in HalGuard has passed extensive testing by Underwriters Laboratories, and meets FAA requirements. It can be found on commercial aircraft, and is used by airport fire fighters and on the flight line. Hand held HalGuard extinguishers are available in either compact 1.4 lb. and 2.5 lb. sizes, or larger 5 lb., 11 lb., and 15.5 lb. units. The larger sizes are USCG approved, and meet DOT requirements for the heavy duty truck market. 65 lb., and 150 lb. wheeled HalGuard extinguishers offer maximum clean agent protection for the pit lane or large facilities.
My neighbor had an electrical fire in the kitchen due to an old stove shorting out. Flames going two feet up the wall from the back of the stove. Also caught old grease in hood on fire, yuck. shot the fire with this extinquisher while pushing the stove door down with my foot to get the stream behind the stove. Fire went out in about 3 seconds. A short burst into the hood put that out. Other than the stove being roached, the only other damage was from smoke. The fire department, which showed up ten minutes later, thought the fire just burned out on its own. My neighbor now owns two of these extinquishers after paying me to replace mine.
