    Larger HalGuard Fire Extinguishers Now Available from H3R Performance
    New "clean agent" units ideal for heavy duty, racing and automotive repair markets

    (Larkspur, CA) - H3R Performance has expanded its line of HalGuard™ "clean agent" fire extinguishers. Six larger units are now available that meet the needs of the heavy duty truck, automotive repair, restoration, hot rod, and racing (for trailers and pit crews) markets along with RV and boating enthusiasts.

    Previously, HalGuard™ had only been available in 1 and 2.5 lb. handheld, rechargeable red or chrome-plated bottles. Now, 5, 11, and 15.5 pound hand portable sizes are offered in red, and are USCG approved and meet DOT requirements for the heavy duty truck and RV markets. The 5 pound size is also available in chrome.

    In addition, two new wheeled extinguishers are being sold in 65 and 150 pound sizes. Both wheeled extinguishers can be towed at up to 15 m.p.h. and are suitable for use in the pit lane.

    About H3R Performance

    H3R Performance, Inc., a member of the H3R group of companies, offers the aftermarket high quality, USA-made, UL Listed fire extinguishers under the MaxOut™ and HalGuard™ brands. HalGuard™ "clean agent" extinguishers do not leave a messy residue - desirable when protecting classic collector, high performance, tuner and race cars. HalGuard is also ideal for use in the RV, marine, off-road and heavy duty truck markets. 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 compact, 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. Larger hand portable and wheeled HalGuard™ extinguishers are also available for maximum protection.

    The H3R group of companies includes: H3R Performance, Inc., H3R Aviation, Inc., the largest supplier of portable clean agent fire extinguishers to the aviation industry, and H3R Clean Agents, Inc., a major buyer, seller and recycler of clean agents to the fire protection and other industry.
