Foam Extinguishers

Aqueous Film Forming Foam or AFFF (pronounced A-triple-F) has, in the last 15 years become one of the most popular all-rounders.

Suitable for Class A fires (wood, paper, material, cloth, etc) and Class B (flammable liquids such as petrol, spirits, diesel), the AFFF foam spray versions are fitted with a special nozzle that reduces the electrical risk (tested to 35,000 volts).

Foam fire extinguishers should never be used on live electrical equipment but the special nozzle will not conduct when it gets accidentally sprayed onto electrics.

This advantage has made the foam spray one of the best extinguishers in the modern office for years. In addition, our 6 litre foam fire extinguisher has a 21A fire rating as standard which is better thanthe 9 litre water but weighs two-thirds the amount. Have you ever tried picking up a large extinguisher?

On flammable liquids, the film-forming property prevents re-ignition.

A suitable wall mounting bracket is standard with every unit but also take a look at our range of extinguisher stands in coloured composite and chrome.

AFFF extinguishers should be on the wall at one metre high or on fire stands.

Also, have you seen the polished stainless steel version? These will look very impressive in a designer setting such as a modern office or shop. They also last longer as they won't rust.
