FLAMEOUT as a Fire Break

Before

During

After (reverse angle, looking uphill)

The area above contains dry thick brush that ranges from 1 to 2 feet high. This test used FLAMEOUT #1000 fire retardant. The area was treated three weeks previous to the date of the burn. An 8 foot wide and 200 foot firebreak of FLAMEOUT was sprayed on this area. This test was conducted to show that an 8 foot wide by 200 foot firebreak could effectively stop a ragging fire. Note the wooden stakes marked the edge of the treated area. The firemen ignited the fire approximately 100 feet up wind of the treatment area along a 200 feet line. The flames immediately roared toward the treatment line extending as high as 15 feet high. The brush burned quickly and completely as in most brush fires.



Flameout #1000 is used for natural materials (as shown above)
Flameout #5111 is used for synthetic materials (ie.. drapes, furniture, upholstery etc.).
