CAN THE EXTINGUISHER BE MOUNTED ON A PLASTERBOARD WALL?

Yes. Each product is supplied with a wall bracket designed for installation on the plasterboard. However, the correct fasteners (dowels or drywall anchors) must be used. All our products include installation instructions. You can also download the instructions on the website.

ARE THE FABRIC COVERS FIREPROOF?

The conventional fabrics that are monochromatic are self-extinguishing. Thus, they offer increased protection during firefighting. The colourful materials used for CUSTOMISED versions of the shields and supplied by MARTHI Studio are not treated with the same special protection. However, they can withstand fire for approximately 10-15 seconds during active firefighting. The shield provides excellent protection, especially against scorching, when opening the door or the hood. And, of course, in case of falling debris.

IS YOUR EXTINGUISHER HEAVIER THAN CONVENTIONAL EXTINGUISHERS?

The weight is more or less the same. Our solution offers the convenience of one-handed operation. The shield shape is more convenient for handling the device in case of fire. It allows you to keep your hand free to open doors and carry a child, pet, or valuables. Single-hand operation is ensured for the entire duration of the firefight.

HOW IS THE DEVICE REVISED?

Inspection and servicing of fire extinguishers are regulated by the applicable legislation and standards. Only trained and qualified personnel may perform them. The service life of an extinguisher, i. e., an assembly comprising of a toroidal tank, valve, riser tube, pressure gauge, hose and nozzle, is 20 years. The service life commences from its manufacture date that is permanently stamped on the extinguisher container. The manufacturer shall specify a monthly pressure check conducted by the operator or owner; the device shall be inspected at least once every 366 days; the tank shall be reviewed internally; and the valve, extinguishing agent, and discharge gas replaced every 5 years at the latest.

DOES YOUR EXTINGUISHER MEET ALL THE REQUIREMENTS AND CERTIFICATIONS?

Yes. All Amplla products have been certified. Moreover, this product is manufactured in the Czech Republic.

CAN WOMEN OPERATE THE DEVICE?

Of course. In fact, our studies have clearly demonstrated that women highly appreciate our concept. Most women are afraid of standard fire extinguishers. Our extinguishers are used in a very intuitive way. Even women can operate the extinguisher with one hand. The shield providing additional protection constitutes another major benefit.

DO YOU PRODUCE THE EXTINGUISHER FOR LEFT-HANDED USE ONLY?

Currently, the extinguisher is designed for left-hand grip only. It can be carried vertically. While using it, the device must be kept in a horizontal position (toroid vertical, handle horizontal). You can also use your right hand to hold the device in the active position. The Amplla extinguisher can also be used in the standard way, i. e., handling it with both hands: you hold the extinguished and operate the valve with your left hand. At the same time, pull out the hose with the nozzle and operate it with your right hand.

CAN THE EXTINGUISHER BE REUSED?

Yes, you can. But the following procedure must be observed: after use, the device cannot be used again without refilling the fire extinguisher, changing the valve, pressurizing with nitrogen and legal inspections. After each use, the device must be handed over to an authorized organization, which will secure everything and deliver it back. The device can then be used again. The number of refills is not limited. The only limitation is the age and technical condition of the container. A container that is without obvious damage and corrosion has a maximum service life of 20 years. The same rules apply to other types of fire extinguishers.

WILL PEOPLE RECOGNISE THE DEVICE AS A FIRE DISTINGUISHED UNDER STRESS AND PANIC?

The Amplla extinguisher is equipped with a standard pictogram that forms an integral part of the device and cannot be removed. In addition, our extinguisher eliminates the need to construct complex niches and cabinets for keeping conventional extinguishers. Amplla will significantly participate in educating the public on the design and application of the new device. Moreover, the owners or users of the property or transport vehicles are also responsible for training regular users on how the extinguisher operates and allowing casual users to learn how to use it and prevent children from handling it.

DO YOU MANUFACTURE ONLY POWDER EXTINGUISHERS OR ALSO OTHER TYPES?

Amplla Hussechuck and Shield fire extinguishers contain the extinguishing agent – ammonium dihydrogen phosphate – and discharge gas (nitrogen). The device is under the constant pressure of 15 bar, maintaining a temperature of 20°C. Currently, we do not produce any other variants but are developing them. We have decided to apply the most versatile type of extinguishing agent for extinguishing small and incipient fires.
