“Gasi” is a system of products that implements a new method of extinguishing a fire. The main module of the system is a cube that activates in contact with the flame and releases enough powder to stop the fire. Depending on the location and intensity of the fire, the system offers three products. They differ in their physical properties, usage and the way of application. Product innovation contributes to fire protection, especially in the initial phase, when there is a risk of fire spreading.
