"A resident left a skillet burning and a fire started, but the flame was extinguished by StoveTop FireStop before too much damage could be done. This could have been a disaster in the apartment community. We are very glad that we had installed StoveTop FireStop."
— Linda O'Neal Property Manager, Edgewood Drive Apartments - HSI Management Inc.
"Royal American Management has been using StoveTop FireStop Automatic Fire Extinguisher in our apartments since 1994. Prior to installation of the product, we averaged a kitchen fire per month. We found that more fires occurred during the school months with school-age children fixing snacks on the stove and then leaving the burners on. Average cost of each fire was around $3,000.00. Since installing StoveTop FireStop, we seldom have kitchen fires and have calculated our cost savings from cooking fire-related losses at approximately $100,000.00. I have personally installed StoveTop FireStop in my home and would recommend this product to companies and individuals for both safety and loss control due to fires."
