Baker Aviation's Hot-Stop 'L' Fire Containment bag can control a fire caused by faulty batteries, or electrics in items such as cell phones or laptops, when the use of water or a fire extinguisher is not going to work. The FAA identified the issue of Lithium Ion batteries catching fire and being a risk to flights, this Fire Containment Bag was developed as a solution. Various methods of dealing with fires caused by faulty electronic devices have been explored. Methods tested include halon extinguishers, water dousing, wrapping in a blanket and dousing with water. When a battery is at ignition point it can be difficult to prevent a fire. On a flight it's crucial to get the situation under control immediately or passengers and plane are at risk.
Available exclusively through Baker Aviation, the HOT-STOP ‘L’ bags come in multiple sizes, small ones for smart phones, medium for passenger or flight deck tablets, and large for laptop computers, or they can be custom designed to fit defibrillators or any lithium powered device carried on-board an aircraft. These bags are proudly Made in the USA and are a great addition to anyone’s Safety Management System (SMS).
