The company’s aerosol spray cans contain fire suppressants designed to fight specific blazes. Kitchen Guard is formulated for cooking oil and grease fires, and Home Guard is engineered to tackle common household fires involving wood, paper, fabrics and plastics.
The parent company of Shield Fire Protection, founded by Tom Bower, has been making fire-extinguishing products in the U.S. for more than 40 years. The agents inside its aerosol sprays have been proven to work in commercial and industrial environments. Kitchen Guard contains the same extinguishing agent used by restaurants to protect deep fat fryers, and Home Guard contains the agent used by fire departments to fight fast-spreading forest fires.
If a fire ignites in your home, first reactions are critical. Traditional fire extinguishers can be intimidating; they’re bulky, unfamiliar, and hard to handle. Aerosol sprays are easy to use -- we’ve all discharged plenty of spray cans -- and they’re small enough to keep handy in a kitchen cabinet or on a shelf. As a new addition to your home safety kit, a Shield fire suppressant spray could be your best defense to extinguish a small fire before it grows.
