Author

Abstract
Nowadays safety is a hot topic, damage inflicted to human beings is intolerable. Fire safety is a big concern in industrial areas, but in residential areas a lot less precautions are in place. Therefore a new type of fire extinguisher should be developed that should encourage the installation of fire extinguishers in commercial environments and at home. The design of this fire extinguisher has to answer to a lot of demands. From a legal point of view, the extinguisher has to comply with the PED regulations and the EN 3 standard. Extra demands are, given the purpose, superb performance, great ergonomics and an attractive visual design. One of the steps in the design process is to make a material selection based on needed and desired properties of materials. Also the possible processes for manufacturing are an important parameter.
