EXXFIRE™ – Securing Hardware
EXXFIRE is an ambitious young start-up company that has developed fire suppression systems for ICT and electrical hardware. This system is based on Cool Gas Generator Technology, a pressureless chemical gas storage technology that was originally developed by TNO Defence and Security for ESA (European Space Agency) to propel satellites. EXXFIRE wants this technology to replace pressurized gas cylinders in gaseous fire extinguishing systems worldwide.
Next to being pressureless, the nitrogen gas at ambient temperature is the second Unique Selling Point of Cool Gas Generators, because there is no temperature shock to sensitive ICT equipment in comparison to other gaseous systems.
All in all, EXXFIRE™ has a potentially disruptive technology to change the market for fire suppression systems in ICT, electrical equipment and potential other markets such as the petro-chemical industry.
