Our house is big, we would need to buy a lot of balls to keep it protected vs having a regular extinguisher
We understand that it might require a lot of balls to keep your entire house protected but an extinguisher won't be able to reach different areas at the same time. Additionally, our ball distributes the compound evenly in 360°, provides 24/7 protection, requires no training and is maintenance free for 5 years.
Also we do provide discounts for large orders – those extra few could help make the difference in saving your life and property.
