Exhibitors: Fire Away!

Oct 01, 2014

Uncontrolled fire is extremely dangerous in low income communities because of the proximity of homes. These Exhibitors show us how to harness fire as a commodity and reduce the risk of fire where it poses a threat.

 

Super Safe Candle Holder by Wikus van Niekerk and Conrad Stoffberg is a simple wire candle holder designed to prevent a candle from tipping over and starting a fire.

Similarly, Dustin Brinkley’s Light 4 Life is a safe candle holder, which prevents upright or fallen candles from igniting surfaces and nearby objects yet allows for maximum illumination from the candle!
