Protective Packaging Limited were delighted to receive their award for “Technical Innovation” from EAFA the European Aluminium Foil Association during the recent Interpack exhibition in Dusseldorf.
Directors John Molyneux and Simon Jolly collected the award from EAFA for their entry of the “Zero 360 Fire Suppression System” an inner bladder manufactured from aluminium barrier foil laminate which prevents nitrogen transfer and enhances the shelf life of the extinguisher which is used within the motor sport industry.
Manufactured from PET/ALU/OPA/LDPE with a welded stem which contains fire suppressant, the bladder is available in either a flat or cylindrical design. It is housed in an aluminium cylinder which is super pressurised with Nitrogen as a propellant. When there is a sudden rise in temperature nitrogen compresses the bladder and the fire suppressant is discharged through the valve and two discharge outlets which are strategically placed within the vehicle.
Simon Jolly commented “we are delighted to have won this prestigious award and are constantly striving to manufacture new and innovative applications and the inner bladder for the Lifeline Fire Suppression System was an exciting new challenge. We are grateful to Jim Morris, MD at Lifeline Fire & Safety Ltd for putting their trust in us to get the development right, and achieving the desired results.”
