Eau Claire, Wisconsin (March 13, 2019) — Hanley Wood, the premier marketing company serving the construction industry, based in Washington, D.C. has announced that the Rusoh® Eliminator® fire extinguisher has been awarded “Editor’s Choice” in the 2019 Most Innovative Products (MIP) at the World of Concrete Awards.
Presented annually with the World of Concrete, the Most Innovative Products Awards program showcases many products exhibited at the show that was held in Las Vegas, January 22-25, including the Rusoh® Eliminator® extinguisher. The Awards allow World of Concrete attendees and audiences of the magazine, Concrete Construction, an opportunity to vote for the products they see as most innovative. Winners are also selected by a panel of industry experts, as well as by the editors of Concrete Construction. Winning products are chosen based on the innovation they bring to the industry.
This year’s products were grouped into ten categories. The Rusoh® Eliminator® fire extinguisher was named “Editor’s Choice” in the General Construction Tools and Equipment Category.
“We’re thrilled that the Rusoh® Eliminator® fire extinguisher is being recognized for its innovation; exactly what this fire extinguisher is all about,” said Douglas Frederick, COO of Rusoh Inc.’s parent company National Presto Industries, Inc.
The Rusoh® Eliminator® is the world’s first and only self-service, self-reloadable extinguisher. With its array of innovative features, the extinguisher takes fire protection to the next level. Unlike traditional extinguishers, it contains zero pressure until activated. With the built-in patented Rusoh® fluffing wheel system, the user can perform on a regular 30-day schedule the kind of maintenance that is currently available only through a licensed service person every six-years, ensuring that the extinguishing agent is always in the requisite fluid state to put out a fire. Using the accessory reloading kit, a layperson can reload the extinguisher in a matter of minutes, eliminating the need for and the cost of third party servicing. In terms of putting out a fire, the Rusoh® extinguisher is superior. An intuitive ergonomic design makes the extinguisher both comfortable to hold and easy to activate; an integrated hose and valve enables the user to deliver the extinguishing agent with complete control; and the unique nozzle expels a wider and more effective discharge pattern. Finally, the extinguisher’s rugged polymer housing eliminates corrosion inherent with traditional metal extinguishers.
