Chubb FX Fire Extinguisher Wins GOOD DESIGN award

The range features an innovative quick release mechanism and an ergonomically redesigned handle, lever and hose grip. Launched in late 2012, it was designed in consultation with DCA Design International, one of the world's leading product design and development consultancies.

Founded in 1950, the Chicago Athenaeum GOOD DESIGN Awards programme is one of the oldest and most prestigious for design excellence worldwide. Following entries from several thousand manufacturers, the Chubb FX range was selected for the design excellence award in the Protective Equipment category

“We are delighted that the Chubb FX extinguishers have been recognised for their design excellence,” said Alastair Reynolds, managing director, Chubb Fire & Security UK. “Recent user testing shows that the Chubb FX design is 30 percent faster to prime and deploy than a traditional extinguisher design. This award acknowledges our goal to develop effective fire extinguishers that are more intuitive to use.”
