The vision behind our products:
No propellant. No risks. No compromise!
F-Exx pursues a clear goal with its fire extinguishers:
Making security available - quality Made in Germany without compromise.
This is what we stand for with our good name.
But how did the idea come about?
In addition, Horst Molitor, Managing Director of Tectro SMT GmbH and significantly involved in the further development and market launch of the F-Exx fire extinguishers:
"The development of a safe fire extinguisher technology without environmentally harmful propellants, combined with the advantages of our patented Noatec Flexpack application system, was a personal concern of ours."
"Once again we heard about a case in which a powder extinguisher caused great damage in a grease fire in the kitchen. It caught our attention.
Of course, foam fire extinguishers were also available back then. But since we always try to think environmentally friendly and pay attention to our ecological footprint, we came up with the idea that the propellant gas in the foam fire extinguishers that had been common up until then could be avoided with our system.
So we developed the F-Exx fire extinguisher series in our laboratories."
And what does your invention bring to the environment?
"Today we can proudly say that our fire extinguishers alone save a considerable amount of fuel gas in Germany year after year.
This is a great achievement by our development department, which I am proud of and for which I can only thank all customers. By buying our fire extinguishers, you have actively done something for the environment by consciously buying propellant-free products."
Are all of your extinguishers produced in Germany?
"Yes. We are now producing fire extinguishers in Rhineland-Palatinate at the Saarburg site with several full-time employees and have thus strengthened the production team in our plastics industry on a permanent basis."
Do your fire extinguishers have any other advantages?
"I can answer that very clearly with yes. Our F-Exx fire extinguishers are not only propellant-free and have a low operating pressure of approx also upside down or at an angle.
This makes operation much safer and easier, because it can no longer happen that when the extinguisher is held at an angle, only propellant gas and no extinguishing agent escape.
In an emergency, this can be the point that decides whether you, as the person affected, can get the fire under control or not."
Which products are actually the most popular?
"Our absolute bestsellers are the F-Exx 8.0 Bio models, the all-round fire extinguisher for the home, then the F-Exx 3.0 F fat and solids extinguisher, which was specially developed for kitchens and barbecues, and last but not least the F-Exx 8.0 C , a frost- and heat-proof fire extinguisher especially for cars, mobile homes, caravans and garages."
Where can I get more information about your fire extinguishers?
"On the one hand, all relevant documents are stored on our homepage for every product, i.e. safety data sheets, product data sheets, etc.
On the other hand, we have test videos of various models online so that interested parties can see for themselves how easy and effective extinguishing with F-Exx fire extinguishers is. Even if, as a businessman, I need meaningful figures, data and facts - sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
And if you have any questions, our customer service will be happy to answer your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org".
What equipment would you choose for bpsw. recommend a young family?
"Every household should have good basic equipment to protect against incipient fires.
So at least one extinguisher should always be readily available in the kitchen, another one near the other living rooms and of course in the area of the heating system.
So 2 pieces of our F-Exx 8.0 Bio and 1 piece of the F-Exx 3.0 F."
So please ask yourself: Can you afford a fire?
