Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0778052A1] The fire extinguisher has a spray head (3) which is connected to a tank (2) of the extinguishing product by a flexible tube (4). A section (25) engages with a part (11) of the extinguisher actuating mechanism (10,11), operating the mechanism when the head is separated from the tank. The head has the general shape of a gun with a trigger (25) forming the section which engages with the actuating mechanism. The actuating mechanism consists of a sliding rod (10) with a pointed tip (10a) to pierce the seal (12) of a propellant gas cartridge (5). The rod is actuated by a lever (11) with a cam (11a) at one end and its other end (11b) engaging with an aperture in the trigger. The cam is shaped so that the spray head cannot be replaced in its original position before the fire extinguisher is re-charged. The wall mounting bracket is shaped so that the fire extinguisher is inclined towards the user and is held in place by a strap which breaks when the extinguisher is pulled away from the bracket.
