What is FireGuardia?
FireGuardia is an engineering and manufacturing company specializing in non-carcinogenic, eco-friendly smart fire protection for commercial and residential construction, textile, and manufacturing industries. We will change the way products are treated for fire suppression by offering a 100% non-carcinogenic alternative to present-day fire retardants.
FireGuardia prevents fires, safeguards life, and protects property.
What materials do you use?
Our products enforce a circular economy by using previously used and/or demolished materials.
A fireproof thermal insulator
Non-carcinogenic applications for skin, fabrics, or wood
Do not release toxic VOCs, vapors, fume, or smoke when exposed to fire
Actively and passively prevent the spread of flames
Non-toxic to humans, pets, plants, trees, and wildlife
Won't create hazardous material waste
Our environmentally-conscious composition does not rely on cancer-causing agents and may be used in tandem with other flammable materials, such as textiles, polyurethane foam, and 3D-printed parts.
How does it work?
FireGuardia products rely on thermal diffusivity, intumescence and ablation.
An intumescent is a substance that swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume and decreasing in density. Intumescent materials used in fire protection increase their volume significantly under the influence of heat -- at approximately 392° F / 200° C.
Our product actively and passively increases resistance when exposed to extreme heat -- the material expands and as it expands, acts as an insulator. Our product is activated at around 212° F / 100°C and withstands temperatures well beyond 5972° F / 3300° C with resilience over multiple iterations from the instant of heat exposure to beyond 30 mins, depending on the scenario.
Is it safety certified?
Yes, FireGuardia is classified UL compliant by the world’s leading testing and certification company.
What products are available?
FireGuardia has a suite of non-carcinogenic products:
Home fire safety device
Residential fire protection systems
Wildfire and Wild Urban Interface (WUI) protection systems
What materials are missing?
Our fire retardant does no rely on toxic, cancer-causing chemicals.
Current fire retardants rely on chemicals that are supposed to slow ignition and prevent fires, mostly used to meet public safety regulations. Agents of concern include organohalogen and organophosphate chemicals such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), organophosphate ester (OPEs), and chlorinated tris (TDCPP).
These fire retardants are used in a wide range of consumer goods including furniture, children’s products, electronics, building materials, wire and cables. Some fire retardant chemicals are associated with lowered IQ and hyperactivity in children as well as cancer, hormone disruption, and decreased fertility in adults and wildlife.
