Siam Safety’s Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball is a sphere-shaped fire extinguisher that when tossed into a fire, activates within three seconds to disperse flame-extinguishing chemicals. It also sounds a loud noise as a fire alarm.

Phanawatnan called the award an honor for himself, his family and Thailand.

He said OMAC executives said the invention was selected for the prize based on surveys of media, business and diplomatic sources. Presentation of the award, to be attended by dignitaries from 40 countries, is a testament to the product’s quality, he said.
