Jactone Products forges strategic partnership with PVStop International

28 June 2022

JACTONE PRODUCTS has signed an exclusive manufacturing and distribution agreement with PVStop International for PVSTOP, the “world’s first and only solution” for ‘switching off’ solar panels, making them safe in the event of an emergency such as a fire. PVSTOP acts as a liquid blanket that’s sprayed on to the solar panel and blocks out the energy source (ie the daylight).

This partnership combines PVStop International’s liquid solar panel ‘block out’ solution with Jactone Products’ British-manufactured pressure vessels that have been manufactured in its UK facility for over two decades now.

Commenting on the addition of PVSTOP to its own product line, Jactone Products’ managing director Craig Halford stated: “Jactone Products views this agreement as a significant development and looks forward to working with PVStop International on this exciting project.”

Jim Foran, director at PVStop International, responded: “Jactone Products has a reputation for producing premium quality fire extinguishing equipment which aligns with PVStop International’s core values of quality, innovation and excellence. We’re delighted to partner with Jactone Products for this exciting new chapter of our evolution.”


Jactone Products has been exhibiting at INTERSCHUTZ 2022 in Hanover. INTERSCHUTZ is badged by the organiser as “the world’s leading trade fair for the Fire and Rescue Services, civil protection, safety and security.”

From Jactone Products’ perspective, the show was “busy and eventful”. Craig Halford noted: “It was a great show. We made plenty of new contacts and met lots of old friends.”

Visitors to INTERSCHUTZ 2022 were granted access to an exclusive first look at PVSTOP in person by dropping by Jacton’s Stand B14 in Hall 12.
