    Unfortunately our bay had an engine fire and was a write off. Now have two fire extinguishers and a fire blanket. This easily tops them all.

    Appears to be a great product, nice find. Easy to install & effective. Site is a little guarded about the type gas used....I wonder what it actually is ?
    Cheers, Mark

    Yes Mark there is no information on the type of gas or if the gas in under pressure in its unactivated state so, depending on what it is, it may be considered dangerous goods in Australia and import may not be possible through the usual channels. The company appears to be based in Slovakia and I would imagine if it was as popular in Europe as stated then it would have some sort of CE marking to show compliance for sale in Europe (this would be stated in the sales blurb for sure). Perhaps it would be prudent to e-mail the manufacturer to request more information and whether there is an Oz agent before committing the $200 to an American supplier.
    cheers, Tom

    The Jogrusa website identifies the suppressant as FE-36 and operation thus:
    "When the temperature in the protected enclosure rises to a critical threshold, (sustained temp of 120*C or 248*F) the detection tube melts down at the point where the affecting temperature is the highest."
    FE-36 is considered Class 2.2 Dangerous goods (non-flammable and non-toxic gas) and is contained under pressure so not sure if there are any issues with shipping through the post. Maybe another member has some experience of this?
    I posted a query with the Late Bay forum in the UK and although, like us, some thought it looked a great idea it was suggested that it might work OK with a stationary engine but when the engine was running the gas would be sucked through the fan and dispersed and while gas offers quick initial knockdown it has little cooling effect and hence re-ignition could be a problem.
    I don't think I will bother at the moment but would be interested to hear if anyone on the Kombi forum gives it a go.
    cheers, Tom
