THE Elide Fire extinguishing ball is a scientifically proven and award winning self-activating fire extinguishing solution for virtually any situation where there is a possibility of an accidental fire.

It is the only internationally patented brand of fire extinguishing ball that is sold and distributed by Fiji Fish.

The easy to handle fire ball is compact with 147mm diameter and a light weight of 1.3kg which can be tossed or rolled into the fire from a safe distance.

What makes this fireball different from standard fire extinguishers is that it is fully automatic, requires no servicing for five years and can be used in all the four fire classes.

Namely fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper or textiles (Class A), fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel or oils (Class B), fires involving gases (Class C), fires involving metals (Class D) and fires involving live electrical apparatus (Class E.) and can be installed as a 24/7 standby automatic fire protection if positioned in appropriate high risk areas where fires are likely to start.

The fireball is not only environmentally friendly but has an audible alarm of 101-128 decibels sounds when activated and activates when it comes in contact with naked flame.


Members of the public are warned that a counterfeit ball branded AFO has been reported in Fiji and these balls are subject to prosecution and seizure under breach of International patent owned by Elide

This illegal counterfeit AFO ball has been seized in many countries and was bought to Fiji without National Fire Authority's approval.

They have a history of not igniting at times and in failing to extinguish fires at times.

The fake AFO Balls are easily identified with the prominent AFO brand and orange colour compared with Elide's, bright red.
