Thanks to the large volume of electrical and electronic equipment in today’s buildings, coupled with a larger volume of combustible materials, our homes and commercial buildings have more potential for fire hazards than ever before. This isn't just assumptions; we have data and numbers to back it up. In 2019 alone, according to the U.S. Fire Administration and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):
- 1.3 million fires were reported in the United States.
- These fires caused 3,700 civilian fire deaths.
- There were 16,600 civilian injuries due to fire.
- Fires caused $14.8 billion in property damage.
These numbers are staggering. Clearly, we need to do all we can to prevent fires from starting, as well as slow their spread and extinguish them as quickly as possible. If you're looking to do so, we encourage you to give thought to Barricade Fire Gel.
Learn About Barricade Fire Gel
Barricade Gel is a liquid concentrate which, when mixed with water, provides dead-stop fire protection on everything it has coated. This includes wood, glass, vinyl, metal, and more! It provides a unique, thermal-protective coating that is able to protect structures from burning when they are exposed to the effects of fire. Barricade Fire Gel provides a fire-stopping barricade for you to “prepare, protect and preserve” your assets.
When to use Barricade Fire Gel
Wildfire season is now year-round in many parts of the country. If you are in a fire zone or WUI zone, and wildfires are coming toward your home, apply the fire gel to the exterior of your home just prior to evacuation, or at least a few hours before the fire is expected to reach your neighborhood. Do NOT wait until the last minute - you want to be sure you have enough time to treat your property AND evacuate the area. No house is worth a human life!
How Long Does it Last?
This is the all-important question, and we have great news for you. According to the manufacturer's website, Barricade Fire gel lasts a really, really long time! Depending on weather conditions, such as sunlight, wind, and humidity, it can be expected to last from a minimum of six to eight hours to a maximum of 24-36 hours. The thicker you apply the gel the longer it will last. So go ahead and apply a nice, thick layer to anything and everything you want to stay protected from flames.
