These are typical numbers of Stixx required. Each case should be calculated on their own merit.
- Electrical cabinet 1-4
- Washing Machine -3
- Tumble Dryer-3
- Freezer – 1
- Electric box in boat / camper van = 1-2
Considerations when it comes to refrigerator/freezer
Fires can occur behind the refrigerator and freezer by collecting dust on compressors and cooling coils that clog the air circulation. The heat from the compressor may be enough for the dust to ignite. The insulation material in the refrigerator and freezer can also be ignited.
Remove the protective film on the "sticker side" and apply the sticker directly above the compressor (see PDF) with the coloured side down towards the compressor.
Things to consider when it comes to electrical cabinets
Each electrical cabinet needs a quick assessment to determine how many Maus Stixx are required. Typically, it can be anything from 1-4 stickers. The number is dependent on the volume and the shape of the cabinet.
The MAUS STIXX installation guide gives you a simple method to calculate where to place the Stixx and how many are required.
It is not just the volume of the area to be covered but it is important that the Maus Stixx is located no more than 30 cm from a potential ignition area.
