Baker Aviation, the Master Distributor for the HOT-STOP® ’L’ EVO Fire Containment Kits, will be demonstrating its lithium-ion battery fire safety solution at this year’s Heli-Expo, Booth 6910, as a first-time exhibitor.
The safety concern and increasing threat of lithium-ion battery fires and toxic smoke emissions from various electronic devices onboard aircraft, triggered the development, testing, and manufacturing of HOT-STOP ‘L’ Fire Containment Kits, a decade ago, as the pioneering solution. Today, HOT-STOP ‘L’ EVO is being introduced to the helicopter industry at the Heli-Expo convention as the ideal safety solution for operations looking to eliminate this threat.
“We are excited to be here at Heli-Expo to introduce our proven, tested, and burn certified safety tool to the helicopter market,“ commented Ray Goyco, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer for Baker Aviation Maintenance, and Master Distributor for HOT-STOP® ‘L’. “The thin, lightweight, easy to deploy characteristics of HOT-STOP bags align with this market’s safety culture and will accommodate the space limitations of most helicopter cabins and cockpits. The new HOT-STOP ‘L’ EVO products are airtight once the device is sealed inside and have been tested by a UL approved laboratory to contain fire, and all toxic smoke emissions until the unit burns itself out.” Goyco continued, “this HOT-STOP product is ideal for medivac operators, and can be integrated into any operator’s SMS program that is looking to quickly and easily eradicate the threat of runaway EFB, tablet, phone or other battery devices while in-flight to their destination.”
The HOT-STOP® ‘L’ EVO product line with its zero tolerance, incorporates the latest airtight, zipper technology, comes in multiple sizes, and can be custom-made to fit a variety of devices, including military grade drone batteries. The HOT-STOP ‘L’ EVO bag and gloves have burn certifications, and are designed, proven, and tested at a UL approved laboratory to contain a battery in full thermal runaway until it has burned itself out. HOT-STOP ‘L’ can also conveniently be used as safe storage for a device while unattended, or as a preventative measure if a device shows signs of overheating.
“We also look forward to talking with Heli-Expo attendees about our wide range of maintenance services available to fixed-wing and rotor operators as we operate our FAA Part 145 Repair Station with turbine engine capabilities and a parts supply in Addison, TX (KADS),” added Goyco.
