Flame Detector Shovel / Shovel

Flame Detector Shovel
Flame Detector Shovel

The biggest problem with firefighting is the remaining fire. it can spread to the big fire. When people clean up the fire, they climb up the mountain with heavy equipment. Also, it's difficult to find the remaining fire. When measuring the internal temperature, it requires lots of movement and time. so, we designed "Flame Detector shovel". It contains a pointed rod that changes the color when it reaches a certain temperature. it used thermocolor. it helps you check the temperature easily. Also, the length of the shovel can be freely adjusted. The pointed rod is divided into three layers, and you can make it shorter and more portable.
