ADDISON, Texas, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Baker Aviation, the Master Distributor for the HOT-STOP® 'L' Fire Containment Kits, in affiliation with Industrial Energy Products (IEP), the manufacturer of the HOT-STOP® 'L' product line, offers a proven and tested containment solution for smartphone battery malfunctions that can cause fires and explosions on board aircraft.
In the wake of recent events and FAA recommendations to not charge or turn on a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone while on an aircraft, Baker Aviation is now offering the HOT-STOP® 'L' Fire Containment solution for mobile devices to the flying public and will make them available on Amazon.com soon as well as through other retailers.
"We have known about the smartphone threat for many years, and that is why we pioneered this fire containment solution for lithium-ion battery powered devices back in 2010," stated Ray Goyco, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer at Baker Aviation Maintenance, the Master Distributor for HOT-STOP® 'L'. "Our product is not only easy to deploy in case of an overheating emergency, but it can be used to safely store your smartphone or other device when not in use. The demand from airlines continues to rise for our proven product as unexpected eruptions continue to increase on aircraft around the world. Now with the recent smartphone issues, we recognized that the flying public also needs access to our products for their own protection and therefore we will be making them available for purchase on Amazon soon, and we are also exploring other retail options. Currently, there are no regulations by aviation authorities that require a containment solution on board an airline, but many are adding them for cabin safety," added Goyco.
In addition to these small, light-weight smartphone containment bags that can easily fit into a carry-on briefcase or purse, HOT-STOP® 'L' Fire Containment products come in a variety of sizes for tablets, laptops and more. Immediate orders for the HOT-STOP® 'L' smartphone fire containment bags ($529.99 plus shipping and handling) may be placed by calling 1-972-248-0457 or emailing Ray@Baker-Aviation.com.
The HOT-STOP® 'L' product line in the only one in this market to receive burn certifications and to safely contain fires, explosions and smoke emissions from Lithium-Ion powered devices without the need for water or an extinguisher. HOT-STOP® 'L' products have been successfully demonstrated twice in live fire evaluations at the FAA Technical Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey and further independently fire tested by flight departments and airlines.
