Different types of fires can be distinguished and each type of fire has certain properties that influence the method of firefighting. Every extinguishing agent is suitable for extinguishing a certain type of fuel. Because no fire is the same, every type of fire also requires a different approach. There are solid, liquid and gaseous extinguishing agents. The basis of almost all extinguishing agents is the method of suffocation or cooling.

In addition to fuel, oxygen and temperature, the chain reaction is the elements that shape a fire. The extinguishing capacity of extinguishing aerosol does not lie in suffocation or cooling, but in disrupting or interrupting the chain reaction. For this reason, Stat-X extinguishing aerosol is suitable for the extinguishing of many types of fires such as solids, liquids, gas and electrically initiated fires. Tests have proven that Stat-X extinguishing aerosol is even capable of extinguish a Lithium battery fire.

How Stat-X works

The extinguishing mechanism of Stat-X lies not in suffocation or cooling but in disruption of the chain reaction.

Electrical activation

Stat-X® electrical units for fixed systems are electrically operated and typically tied to a conventional fire detection and releasing panel.

Thermical activation

Stat-X® thermal aerosol extinguishing unit operate as stand-alone unit with their own detection mechanism.


There are different types of fires and each type of fire requires its own method of detection and extinguishing.
