Mantle™ demonstrates capabilities with world’s first containment of over 6 hour 5000 Li-ion battery fire

Mantle™ was launched 1 year ago at WCS Dallas as the fire containment brand for AmSafe Bridport. The brand covers all products within our Fire Containment Covers (FCC) portfolio and continues to surpass expectations in both performance and handling targets.

The challenges continue to increase for airlines, freight forwarders and battery manufacturers when transporting lithium ion batteries. We have focused on improving capabilities by successfully completing a fire test of 5000 type 18650 Li-ion Batteries with our latest product – Mantle Container Fire Containment Cover (C-FCC). Battery load power exceeded 48 Kwh in total, which is significant breakthrough. Testing was witnessed by Unilode, Jettainer, Cathay Pacific and Air Bridge Cargo and supported by a leading aviation regulatory body and major aircraft OEM consultant.

The AmSafe Bridport Fire Containment Cover was the world’s first to be awarded both FAA and EASA Technical Standard Order TSO-C203 approvals, answering the demands of both the industry and its regulators. Ultimately we are not just looking to manufacture covers to contain fires – our products are designed to save lives by reducing risk and improving safety.
