Safe-T Design Fire Extinguishers- FAQ

What is SAFE-T?
SAFE-T is a stylish Design Fire Extinguisher that combines function and aesthetic.  

How long can SAFE-T work?

Made to operate for 10 years. Validity date on the bottom of the extinguisher.

Does SAFE-T meet certain safety standards?
SAFE-T is CE 0029 certified and manufactured according to strict EN3 standards. Also Apragaz Certified, a third-party certifier.  SAFE-T follows the Consumer Product Safety Commission safety guidelines.  Most Fire extinguishers are typically UL certified because they bear instructions for use on the bottle.  Our instructions are at the bottom of the bottle, therefore we are not UL certified.  

What is different from the extinguisher I have at home?
Style! Your (boring) fire extinguisher at home is most likely red with a dusty tag and white markings. Not ready for your kitchen table anytime soon! 

Can SAFE-T replace my traditional extinguisher?
SAFE-T is manufactured with the highest safety and quality standards. Nevertheless, you should always use a UL certified fire extinguisher when that certification is required.

Is there an advantage over regular extinguishers?
Designer Fire Extinguishers are made to be exposed. What's more visible becomes more accessible therefore accessed faster and constantly monitored for pressure.

Who manufactures SAFE-T?
SAFE-T is manufactured by SICLI S.A., the uncontested Belgian leader in fire extinguishers manufacturing and production. SICLI boasts 85+ years of experience.  Some parts are custom made just for us.

When can I use my SAFE-T and what is the classification?
SAFE-T is an ABC, nitrogen compressed, extinguisher made to tackle the initial stages of a fire.  ABC means: 
A: Ordinary solid combustibles made out of organic materials: wood, paper, textiles, PVC, tires.
B: Flammable liquids and gases: oil, grease, paint, petrol, and varnish.
C: Energized electrical equipment.

The fire extinguishing powder (mono-ammonium phosphate) is a non-flammable (duh!), non-toxic inert salt.

How long is SAFE-T guaranteed?
5-year technical guarantee, based on your purchase date.

Can I return my SAFE-T product?
Because the product is Hazmat, shipping it requires meeting strict DOT guidelines. Taking products back is costly and difficult. Please bombard us with every question possible prior as we cannot credit a product that is damaged in transit back to us.

Why do people buy SAFE-T?
The majority uses SAFE-T as a gift because it is so unique and lasts so long.

-A Design Fire Extinguisher is probably the most appropriate Housewarming Gift you can think of.
-Realtors and mortgage brokers use SAFE-Ts as closing gifts. Some smart realtors add a sticker with their credentials.
-Interior Designers to add a touch of class, and uniqueness.

Do you offer other sizes?

We only have one size. SAFE-T is 2.2 Lb or 1 Kg.  It is approximately the same size as a bottle of wine, ideal to be exposed in your kitchen or as a unique home decor piece. 

Can they be recharged?

Yes.  Since SAFE-T is made in Europe, not all service providers in the USA agree to recharge them.

How is it delivered?
They come inserted in a beautiful black tubular wrapper, the same as priceless bottles of whisky.
