MAUS Stixx Pro

795 kr

MAUS Stixx PRO is an automatic fire protection device that extinguishes the fire before it even starts. This award-winning innovation is installed in any small space where a fire may occur. It triggers automatically at 170°C and fills the space with a potassium-based smoke that absorbs the heat of the fire and breaks into the chemical composition of the fire, extinguishing it. Smaller than a normal marker, it fits everywhere and acts as a preventive fire protection. The causes of a fire in a home's electrical panel are many. Bad cables, broken components, too tight or too loose connections, lightning strikes, old wiring, overloading, etc. are all potential hazards that put lives at risk.

Areas of application:
Outboards (under the hood), in the electrical and battery compartments of motorhomes/caravans, in the electrical panel of an apartment/house, and all other small areas where a fire can occur. These are all important areas to protect against fire.

Users and prices:
MAUS is installed by Länsförsäkringar and several other installers. The technology is installed at Jula, Dafgårds, Pfizer, Amazon and others. MAUS Stixx PRO has won an innovation award in France and became Best Electricity Novelty 2021 at Elmässan in Stockholm. Install MAUS Stixx PRO now for a good night's sleep.

The technology behind MAUS Stixx Pro

Firefighting technology developed for space travel

The solid consists mainly of a form of potassium compound. Potassium radicals are very active and interrupt the chemical combustion reactions by neutralizing hydrogen, oxygen and hydroxide radicals in the flame. Since aerosols consist of very small particles in a gas, the result is a more effective extinguishing agent than conventional powders. The falling speed of the particles decreases with a smaller diameter as the surface area becomes large in relation to the mass, which means that the air resistance is relatively large in relation to the gravitational force. This results in the particles staying suspended for a longer time and thus contributes to a longer inertia time. This results in better re-ignition protection. The extinguishing effect per unit weight is in the range of 3-10 times more effective than Halon and CO2.

Installation in an electrical substation

  • Turn off the power.
  • Open up the space (if it is an electrical panel, unscrew the cover).
  • Clean the place where MAUS Stixx Pro will be attached.
  • Remove the red self-adhesive protective film from the MAUS Stixx Pro and place the Stixx Pro in the desired location with gentle pressure.
  • Always place the MAUS Stixx Pro at the top of the space and preferably with the ports (holes) facing downwards. Make sure there is 2-3 cm of free space in front of the ports so that the smoke (aerosol) can be easily distributed into the space.
  • If it's in your own property, use the stickers (included in the package) to write in information with a waterproof pen and stick it on the outside of the space. Also, make a note in the calendar five years ahead to remind you when you need to replace the unit.
  • Once the unit is installed and the outer casing (standard cabinet) is back in place, you can turn on the power.

"During our racing days around Sweden, the track guards are always equipped with MAUS. On three occasions this year we have extinguished car fires with MAUS. We extinguished a Ginetta G20 where the brake fluid had caught fire, and a Time Attack Corvette where we were very close to using the powder extinguisher, but the MAUS Xtin Klein managed to extinguish that engine fire as well. To extinguish a fire with a powder extinguisher in such exclusive and unique cars would be devastating and therefore MAUS is a natural part of our equipment.

"I had given my friend a Maus that he had in his bandwagon. When he was driving in the forest, he noticed smoke in front of the window. He ran out with the Maus in his hand and saw that it was bursting into flames. He pulled out the sprinkler and sprayed the fire and it went out immediately. He was very grateful afterwards and avoided expensive costs if he had used a powder extinguisher (which was also in the cabin)."

"There was a minor engine fire in a passenger car on the highway. The driver ran in a semi-panic and retrieved snow from the ditch. He looked a bit skeptical when I arrived with the little red mower, but he was both happy and impressed by what it could do. It worked very well. We are going to send out some internal info in the company about the event, so there will be some nice publicity for the little extinguisher."
