The First and Only Fire-Prevention Outlet Ever Invented! Setting new standards in home and commercial electrical safety. BSafe’s revolutionary thermal technology saves lives and property by sensing abnormal temperatures in electrical wiring devices, de-energizing the circuits involved, and stopping potential catastrophic fires before they can start.
The Development of Thermal Technology In the last 25 years little has been done
to detect outlet overheating and the subsequent fires caused
by faulty, damaged, or improperly installed wall outlets,
power strips, extension cords, etc. A simple installation
error, such as insufficient tightening at binding head screw terminals,
a poor splicing connection, or connections loosened
over time from normal wear or vibration, can produce
abnormal heat build-up behind walls, potentially leading
to catastrophic fires and death. More...
Fire is Homeowner’s
#1 Concern The numbers are sobering. Every year there
are 67,800 fires, 485 deaths, and $868 million in property
losses caused by electrical wiring problems.*
In fact, Americans are more concerned about fire than
any other home disaster.**

BSafe® TFCI™ – the Newest, Safest
Generation of Electrical Outlets
1904 – First outlet patented
1961 – GFCI,
1991 – AFCI,
2008 – BSafe® TFCI™, our thermal cut-off technology - the only technology that senses abnormal heating at the outlet - meets the requirements of UL Standard 498, Attachment Plugs and Outlets.
Most electrical fires result from problems with 'fixed wiring' such
as faulty electrical outlets and
old wiring. Source: US Fire Administration

BSafe® Technology – How It
BSafe’s TFCI™ thermal cut-off technology
outlet incorporates a multi-sensor thermal switch
mechanism. It senses abnormal temperature at each plug outlet and wiring screw terminal on the device and shuts off electrical power to the load on the outlet when overheating occurs.
Preventing the Glowing Connection
BSafe’s TFCI™ is the only technology that can detect abnormal heat at a connection before the Glowing Connection occurs, thereby preventing a potential fire.
