Fires resulting in fatalities, start in what feels like the safest place - your own home

Fires are caused by electricity, many of them in electrical appliances

What is the E-Bulb?

The E-Bulb is a Circuit Interrupter with Fire Extinguishing Agent (CIFEA, UL 60692) , which in its smallest version is just 2 cm tall, and can even be hidden behind a 1-Euro coin. This makes the E-Bulb the smallest fire extinguisher in the world. Quality-conscious manufacturers have been bringing safe products to the market for years. The causes which can lead to a technical defect, and possibly fire, can never be completely excluded.

Around every third fire is caused by electricity, many from electrical appliances. The E-Bulb can be built directly into the electronics by manufacturers, and protects you from further damage when it otherwise would have been too late.

If an electrical device develops a technical defect, the E-Bulb can detect the fire, extinguish it, and prevent it from reigniting.

The E-Bulb is an innovative new component and can support quality-conscious manufacturers in making safe electrical devices even safer.

Comparable to the aqua-stop leak protection in washing machines, the E-Bulb is part of the fire-stop system for electrical appliances.

The E-Bulb can be easily installed directly into the electronics, protecting your electrical devices around the clock.

The E-Bulb was developed based on sprinkler glass technology, which has been tried and tested billions of times, and consists of a coated glass bulb filled with non-toxic extinguishing agents.

Electrical Safety First Innovation Award

The E-Bulb was named the winner and thus the best innovative development at the 2020 UK Safety Innovation Awards. Learn more at Electrical Safety First.

Do we need device-integrated fire protection?

According to a representative survey, conducted by
the independent market and opinion research institute Forsa
on the topic of “Fire hazard from electrical appliances in the home” (05/2020):

Every electrical appliance is a potential fire hazard and we have many appliances in our household.

62% of all families are afraid that one of their electrical appliances will start a fire at home.

More than 80% of the population would prefer an electrical appliance with a fire-stop function over one without.

Selected case studies

Media Technology
Wherever people gather in large numbers, fire protection plays an important role. This applies in particular to Frankfurt Airport, Germany’s largest and most frequented airport, with almost 200,000 passengers a day (2019), and over 81,000 employees. Given this, the safety requirements for all types of technical infrastructure are high. Thanks to an invention by Job GmbH, electronics company Samsung [article link] has received approval to install large format LED media screens in the airport. Due to the integration of E-Bulbs into the LED media screens, among other measures, the screens have changed from being considered the potential ‚cause of the fire‘ to being ‚involved in the fire‘ from the point of view of fire protection experts, allowing them to be used in more fire-sensitive locations.


Medical Technology
Statistically, a fire breaks out in a German hospital every week, and electrical devices are often the source of these fires. In recent months, the need for ventilators has increased worldwide, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tragically, several patients died in St. Petersburg and Moscow in May 2020 due to fires caused by respiratory equipment. Device-integrated fire protection can be installed in the majority of medical devices at limited cost. The world's smallest fire extinguishers, known as E-Bulbs, are often a good choice. Increasingly, medical technology companies are opting for device-integrated fire protection to make their products even safer.

Home Appliances
Refrigerators, dishwashers, televisions ... most people have many electrical appliances at home, and not just since the smart-home trend emerged. However, since then the fire risk has increased, as most electrical devices now run permanently in standby mode, constantly drawing electricity, so they can be controlled remotely. Every electrical device which remains ‚on‘ is a potential fire hazard. Fortunately, the vast majority of electrical household appliances are safe, however the reasons why a fire can start are so varied, that a fire risk can never be completely ruled out. Knowing their home appliance has a built-in mini fire extinguisher to minimize the fire risk, allows many people to sleep a little sounder.
