About Rusoh Inc.
Founded in 2016, Rusoh Inc. is a leading innovator with a mission to help reduce risk and save lives with patented, UL-certified, easy-to-use and maintain and cost-effective fire safety solutions. The Rusoh® Eliminator® suite of fire extinguishers are the first completely redesigned fire extinguishers to have been created in the last 70 years.
Traditional steel-stored pressure fire extinguishers can rust and have vibration issues, allowing chemical agent compaction and operation failures. They also require special equipment and training to perform regular maintenance due to the high pressure, which can be expensive and confusing to operate in an actual emergency. Rusoh Eliminator® DIY fire extinguishers are designed with the end user in mind to eliminate the problems inherent in these older extinguishers.
Rusoh’s Eliminator® uses innovative technologies, including construction with rust-free military-grade resins, reloadable and disposable CO2 cartridges for reliable pressure transfer and an easy inspection process that you can do yourself. The patented Rusoh® wheel simplifies the process of breaking up compacted powder, making it easy to operate. Additionally, a self-service reload kit is available that can be safely and easily used anywhere. This makes the Rusoh Eliminator® extinguishers the perfect choice for residential, commercial, industrial, transportation and military applications.
