Foam fire extinguishers

Foam fire extinguishers are just one type of extinguisher supplied by our BAFE registered engineers and like all our extinguishers are guaranteed for 5 years.

fire extinguisher engineerFoam extinguishers are most effective on fires involving liquids such as paint or petrol, but it’s important to remember not to use them on kitchen fires, such as chip-pan blazes – this would be highly dangerous.

Foam fire extinguishers work by smothering the fire in a layer of foam and starving it of oxygen.  They are more versatile than water extinguishers but care must still be taken around electrical fires which they’re not generally suited for.

Because they are a good general use extinguisher, foam extinguishers come in a wide range of sizes, from 1 litre right through to 9 litre.  Our foam extinguishers, as with all our extinguishers, meet both British and European standards.
