JUPITER, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2014) - GelTech Solutions, Inc. (
The FireIce Pole-Fire Emergency Kit is a cutting edge product package for use by utility workers faced with combating electrical pole fires. FireIce can be applied directly on the electrical fire from an extinguisher and is effective for voltages up to 50,000 volts from a distance of five feet by workers wearing proper personal protection equipment. The FireIce gel adheres to any surface, rapidly cools and immediately cuts off oxygen to the fuel source. FireIce is an environmentally safe product proudly made in the USA.
"We developed an innovative solution for a faster and more effective way to extinguish electric pole fires using FireIce. This Kit will help solve a widespread problem that power and utility industry workers face each and every day," stated Dan Simon, GelTech Solution's director of utility operations.
The Pole-Fire Emergency Kit is currently being marketed and will be officially unveiled by GelTech's FireIce team at upcoming power and utility industry expositions in April.
