October 3, 2006Research Shows 1 of 3 New Car Buyers Would Like to Purchase a Fire Extinguisher for Their Vehicle
(Larkspur, CA) - According to research conducted by Industrial Marketing Research, one in three new car buyers would like to purchase a fire extinguisher for their vehicle. The survey among 7,027 respondents showed that when asked, 34.4 percent of new car buyers said they do not currently have a fire extinguisher but would like to buy one. Overall, fire extinguishers were the fourth most popular item among accessories consumers could install themselves.
"With nearly 800 vehicle fires occurring every day, we are encouraged by this research." said Chris Dieter, vice president, marketing and distribution, H3R Performance. "It indicates a growing awareness among automobile owners of the need for on board fire extinguishers to help protect their personal safety and the investment in their vehicle."
H3R Performance offers a complete line of premium UL listed fire extinguishers. HalGuard "clean agent" extinguishers do not leave a messy residue - desirable when protecting classic collector, high performance, tuner, and race cars, as well as for use in RV's, marine, off-road and heavy duty. MaxOut is a reliable line of dry chemical extinguishers. Both are effective on flammable liquid fires and do not conduct electricity back to the operator - two important considerations when dealing with the types of fires most likely to occur in an automotive environment.
MaxOut and HalGuard are available in 1 and 2.5 lb. rechargeable red or chrome-plated bottles. They sport high quality steel cylinders, all metal valve construction, and aviation-quality mounting brackets.
