Even though the risk and losses from electrical panel/cabinet fires can be catastrophic, fire protection is often not required in these settings. Firetrace FlexRope is an affordable, easy, all-in-one solution that makes protection within reach.
Firetrace has built its business on innovating and creating fire detection and suppression solutions across the spectrum of industrial applications from the very complex and large, to standard and equipment-based.
However, we know that small-scale, non-regulated applications have often gone unprotected due to a lack of products and solutions designed for these spaces, or because the options that do exist are complex and high-cost.
Firetrace’s FlexRope extends Firetrace-quality protection to applications up to 35 ft³ (1 m³) and is designed to be an easy, no-hassle, DIY solution for customers.

The Firetrace FlexRope is the leading technology in small, enclosed space electrical fire protection.Frequently asked questions
The Firetrace FlexRope combines the components of traditional systems into a single product (agent storage, detection, and discharge together for total suppression). Proprietary granules are housed within a vinyl sheath and wrapped in a fiberglass braid.
During a thermal event inside an electrical enclosure, fire activates the FlexRope at 660 degrees fahrenheit, ensuring there are never false discharges.
When the rope activates, the granules undergo a chemical reaction resulting in a fire-fighting gaseous cloud that fills the enclosure and suppresses the fire before it has the opportunity to spread.
The rope and suppression agent can protect enclosed areas up to 35 ft³ (1 m³) from Class A, B, and C fires, making it an ideal solution for electrical panels and cabinets within equipment or facilities.
We started with detection tubing over 20 years ago — leading to best-in-class direct and indirect fire suppression systems for manufacturing, critical infrastructure, wind, and defense. Now we're using our large-scale experience to make fire protection a reality for small, yet critical, electrical applications.
We do electrical panel and cabinet protection better than anyone else because we’ve designed products and solutions specifically for these settings. We’re using innovative technology, optimized for small, tricky to protect spaces, where we know fire protection is a choice instead of a specification.
While electrical panel/cabinet protection is not often regulated, it is the smart choice. Electrical fires are high-risk scenarios and can cause catastrophic damage, as well as costly downtime. We created a low-cost, easy solution that makes protection a no-brainer.
We’ve created a self-install, no maintenance system that can go from off-the-shelf to in-use in a matter of minutes. Easy also equates to more affordable, with end-users saving on installation and ongoing inspections.
