The CellBlock LIBIK (Lithium Ion Battery Incident Kit) provides versatile, robust solutions for lithium ion battery fire suppression in the transportation, shipping, and aviation industries. CellBlock FCS guarantees LIBIK products to be free from defects in workmanship and materials, under normal inflight use and conditions. CellBlock FCS further warranties that the goods provided under these conditions, will perform in accordance with its recommended procedures for intent and use.

Re-certification and Replacement of LIBIK Bag Contents

The LIBIK bags, Fire Shield Blankets and CellBlockEX loose-fill material have no measurable shelf-life. However, it is recommend that a visual inspection of the pillows, goggles, masks, and gloves be performed on a regular basis. Replacement pillows and personal safety gear are available at minimal cost.

Recommended Inspection Interval

It is recommended that a thorough visual inspection be performed regularly beginning 5 years from date of manufacture, provided the kits are exposed to normal commercial inflight use. This inspection may be performed by the user:
  1. Examine the PED-Pad pillows for signs of wear to the fabric or for leaks of the loose-fill material. Replacement of the fire suppression pillows is recommended if any leaks or wear is detected. Contact your distributor or CellBlock FCS for replacement PED-Pads at minimal cost.
  2. Verify for signs of weakness or damage to the exterior.
  3. Verify that all contents are present and are in good working order.
  4. Re-install a tamper evident tab upon completion of inspection and replacement of equipment in the bag.
