FAQ Delete hedgehog
The extinguishing hedgehog was created to offer emergency services an increased safety distance and thus significantly increase self-protection!
The extinguishing urchin is attached to a plug-in ladder section, which is locked into a plug-in ladder B-section and connected to a Storz B-hose. Thanks to the castors, the extinguishing hedgehog can then be moved without much effort. The ladders as a means of transportation make it possible to maintain an increased safety distance and use existing rescue equipment.
The extinguishing urchin is particularly suitable for industrial and indoor fires, as there is a large range of movement available for the ladder. The extinguishing urchin can support the suppression of toxic gases and aerosols as well as the cooling of containers. In the event of forest fires, the extinguishing urchin can cut a path or be used as a stationary sprinkler.
The metal of the ladder can withstand such use up to 200° without any relevant changes to the material. Nevertheless, the ladder must be inspected by a competent equipment operator after each use. The ladder is constantly cooled by the fire extinguisher, and temperatures near the ground are generally not that high.
The extinguishing hedgehog weighs only approx. 8 kg.
The standard configuration consists of 12 nozzles.
The nozzles can be replaced quickly and easily using standard tools.
Depending on the loading concept, the extinguisher can be placed on the roof or suspended from the protective bracket.
The extinguishing gel can be used with wetting agent. However, it is not possible to produce a thick, suffocating foam.

SnakE is primarily designed for extinguishing e-vehicle fires by directly cooling the high-voltage batteries from below. In addition, there are no limits to the possible applications thanks to the modular design. This makes SnakE e.g. also for the decontamination of vehicles.
The extinguishing tactic recommended by the DGUV for electric vehicle fires is targeted cooling of the vehicle underbody with water.
One specialist publication explicitly advises against extinguishing systems that penetrate the battery!
The powerful nozzles atomize the water to a Droplet size of 300 µm - 500 µm, the cooling effect is drastically increased! The resulting vapor formation even creates an additional embroidery effect. The spray mist also prevents the fire from burning through.
SnakE also works with a normal domestic water connection and a wall hydrant.
SnakE weighs approx. 2kg
