Perimeter Solutions’ PHOS-CHEK and FIRE-TROL fire retardants help slow, stop and prevent the start of wildfires by making wildland fuels non-flammable. For more than 50 years, the people of Perimeter Solutions have been technology leaders in the arena of long-term fire retardants developed for a range of applications.
All Perimeter Solutions products have a high level of fire retardant effectiveness, with differences in visibility, viscosity, adherence to vegetation and durability through weathering.
Perimeter Solutions’ ground-applied long-term retardant solutions are valuable fire management tools that can help stop wildfire in its tracks. PHOS-CHEK FORTIFY can be applied to vegetation and other fuels prior to the start of wildfire season and can help prevent the start of wildfires by making these fuels non-flammable, hardening the vegetation against fire risk. The retardant remains effective even after a significant rain event.
PHOS-CHEK fire retardants are fully qualified by the USDA Forest Service under specification 5100-304c.
They are the safest, most effective, and environmentally friendly products available. FIRE-TROL brand long-term fire retardants have been the standard in Europe for over 30 years. FIRE-TROL 931 for aerial application and FIRE-TROL 934 and 936 for ground application are highly effective for the control and suppression of wildland fires.
Perimeter is a key supplier of wildland fire fighting products and services to the USDA Forest Service, CalFire and other large fire management agencies across the world.
