How FACE works

FACE is a wildfire protection device that is...

  • Fully automated

  • Easily portable

  • Environmentally friendly

 

FACE combines the self-activated technology from traditional fire sprinkler systems and condenses it into the form factor of a handheld fire extinguisher.

Ember Hotspot Protection

FACE can be strategically placed in fire-prone areas to prevent unintended fires from spreading and consuming your property. For example, if a F.A.C.E. device was placed in your attic (as pictured above) or near ember hotspots around the outside of a home (such as near vents or gutters), it would snuff out small fires before they could grow large enough to cause severe damage.

F.A.C.E. can also work in isolation when placed on fire-prone structures like trees outside of the home to help prevent them from burning down or spreading fire to other areas.

Perimeter Defense

When multiple devices are used together and placed intermittently every 10-12 feet, F.A.C.E.s can create a fire suppression wall which can protect the property inside from low-level wildfire flames fueled by light, flashy materials.

 

When a F.A.C.E. device is activated, the fire retardant mixture inside sprays in a 360 degree spread, covering both the area in front of it and what it is mounted on. This extinguishes any fire in the area as well as helps prevent the re-ignition of fuel in the 4-5 foot suppression radius.

Flash Point Resistance

In many instances, wildfires grow hot enough to spontaneously combust structures, particularly wood. In these cases, F.A.C.E. devices can work to increase the resistance of your property to spontaneous combustion by increasing the resistance of the material to temperature changes.

 

By having a temperature trigger of 155 F, F.A.C.E. devices activate well before materials like wood reach their flash point, covering them with fire retardant and increasing their resistance to combustion.

Applications

Grassy Mountains

1

Spot Protection

Place FACE strategically in fire-prone areas like attics and garages to snuff out early-stage fires before they grow large and cause significant damage.

2

Perimeter Defence

Place multiple FACE units intermittently along a boundary to create a fire suppression wall against low-level flames fueled by light-flashy fuels and protect defensible space.

Flash Point Resistance

Place FACE units near high-risk materials like wood to increase their resistance to catching fire. FACE will douse the surrounding area in fire retardant before ambient heat causes combustion.

Advantages

FACE has a significant number of advantages over current mainstream wildfire protection solutions

Cardboard Boxes

Self-contained

FACE requires no external connection to water or power -- no need to install an expensive, bulky water tank or generator

Robot

Fully-autonomous

Once installed, FACE will work completely without human intervention -- you don't have to worry about turning anything on during an emergency

Indoor Bonsai Tree

Localized coverage

FACE only covers the area directly surrounding it -- its dispersion pattern is more reliable than a long-range roof sprinkler in windy wildfires

Modular design

FACE can work by itself or with other units completely independently -- buy only as many as you need and don't overpay

Hardware Tools

Easy installation

FACE can be installed on any property with little to no modifications necessary, lowering the barrier of entry for fire protection
