Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19710300A1] The invention relates to a fire extinguisher comprising a receptacle containing an extinguishing agent, a holder for a propellant gas cartridge, and an actuating mechanism. A wedge-shaped security element (48) is arranged between the actuating mechanism (46) and the seat (22) of a valve controlling the release of the extinguishing agent which is impinged upon by the propellant gas. A propellant gas cartridge (18) is automatically opened by a tappet (24), located on the valve seat, when the safety element is pulled out. This ensures that the receptacle containing the extinguishing agent is impinged upon by the propellant gas cartridge (18) before the fire extinguisher is initially actuated.
