Fire Guard / 1.16 Survival + Emergency / Ec

Fire Guard
Fire Guard

Deflagration is a type of explosion which can cause fatal injuries.
If we can know the temperature on the other side of the door, not only can we reduce the casualties but we can also notify the firefighters earlier about the fire. This can greatly increase the time for escape.

By using thermal material on the door to detect fire, we add a red LED light to the handles of the door to show noticeable fire warnings in the dark.
