You can’t overstate the importance of having a fire extinguisher in your shop or garage. There’s really no excuse not to have one — they’re relatively cheap and available in a variety of ratings and sizes. Now companies like First Alert have even introduced fire extinguishers that look and act like spray cans.
One such product, the Tundra, comes in a 14 oz. spray can with a nozzle that delivers a wide spray. Supposedly the Tundra lasts four times longer than traditional fire extinguishers, and it’s appropriate for kitchens, garages, workshops, boats, automobiles, or anyplace where there are fire hazards.
First Alert claims another potential benefit of their product — easy cleanup. If you’ve ever let a chemical fire extinguisher rip in your kitchen and had the fine yellow powder spread through your whole kitchen, you know what a pain it is to clean up.
At about $16 to $20 the Tundra is pretty reasonably priced — but does the fact that it doesn’t look like a regular fire extinguisher cause confusion in the heat of a fire? Are Tundra and similar spray can extinguishers really as effective? Let us know your opinions and your experiences in the comments.
