Fire Extinguishers

A fire extinguisher, or extinguisher, is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user (i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire department. Typically, a fire extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire.

The foam they release is also non- conductive, so it lowers the risk of electric shock if the fire contains electrical equipment.

•  The foam is used to effectively suffocate fire, by sealing the surface of burning materials or objects, and smothering it. This also cools the surface of the fire and prevents any stray materials from scattering and starting secondary fires elsewhere. ur land at absolutely no extra cost.

Eco-Foam Fire Extinguishers

We offer a range of Eco-Foam fire extinguishers that help towards reducing your carbon footprint, as the foam has almost no negative effects on the environment. This is because foam extinguishers must be discharged and refilled every 5 years to ensure that they remain effective, and the foam is simply disposed of. The Eco-Foam is almost completely biodegradable and doesn't contain any potentially harmful perfluorinate surfactants, so it will not harm the environment when the time comes to replace it.
