AmSafe Bridport continue to prove their status as leaders in reducing risk and improving safety for airlines. They completed the World’s first successful fire containment test with Li-ion batteries in a 1 cubic meter space.
The 6 hour test which bundled together 4,800 50-70% State of Charge batteries into their Mantle Fire Containment “UK/US & EU Pallet skid design” and placed into the thermal runway, recorded internal temperatures exceeding 1500C. Mantle is the only product in the world to contain a fire of this intensity and within such a small space. This is their 8th recorded “Li-on Battery”test across their Mantle range of Fire Containment Covers.
By reducing risk and improving safety, Mantle continues to provide opportunity for airlines to carry Li-Ion batteries in a range of cargo holds and spaces, effectively creating a greater scope of possibilities to expand existing contracts as well as opening doors with new business, especially with Lithium-ion based products.
AmSafe Bridport is the first company to achieve TSO certification C203 for Type 1 FCCs and now look to re-enforce their position with Mantle as the number one FCC manufacturer and provider. Companies like AmSafe Bridport are not just looking to manufacture covers to contain fires – their products are designed to protect products, precious cargo and ultimately to save lives.
