FIRE SAFE / Fire protection equipment


Many cases of fire happening in houses are caused by short circuit of electrical appliances and the attendant burning of sockets.
With the aim of a safer home, the design uses two kinds of alarm devices. When the short circuit of an electrical appliance happens and the heat of the socket increases, the surface coating of the Fire Safe starts to change colors, from green into red.
The inside memory metal uses two ways of bending directions, namely central and lateral. When the heat of the socket increases, the plug detach from the socket because of the bending of the Fire Safe.
Thus the design can prevent fire from happening.
