About LifeSafe

LifeSafe has developed what the Directors believe to be market disrupting, eco-friendly fire safety protection products to both protect (via fire extinguishers) and detect (via carbon monoxide, smoke and heat alarms) fires.

At the centre of the Group's product range is the FER1000 extinguishing fluid, for which the Group has received a notice of intention to grant a patent in the UK. The FER1000 fluid has been developed by LifeSafe to extinguish five different types of fire: electrical, paper, textiles, cooking oil, and petrol and diesel. The Group's best-selling product using this extinguishing fluid is the StaySafe 5-in-1 fire extinguisher. It was launched on Amazon Prime in the UK in August 2021 and subsequently became Amazon Prime's top selling fire extinguisher in the UK in the same month.

The Board believes that the FER1000 fluid and its associated product range have an international addressable market, can save many lives and protect properties and belongings. The Directors also believe that the Group's growth will be driven by the innovative nature of its StaySafe 5-in-1 product which extinguishes five types of fire and its new fluid derivatives and product launches expected in 2023.
