Foam Extinguishers

Foam fire extinguishers are available in 2ltr, 6ltr and 9ltr options and are suitable for ‘Class A’ and ‘Class B’ fires.

The foam type fire extinguisher can be used to extinguisher fires involving carbon based materials (e.g. wood, paper, textiles) as well as flammable liquids ( e.g. oil, petrol, alcohol).

The foam fire extinguisher is not suitable for fires involving flammable metals, fat (cooking oils), flammable gas and electricity.

Maintenance procedures: The ‘Reform Order’ requires that all fire safety equipment be kept in a condition that is fit for purpose and thus requires that all fire safety equipment including fire extinguishers be regularly maintained. It is required in accordance with BS 5306-3:2009 that foam fire extinguishers undergo a basic service with intervals no longer than 12 months and an extended service every five years.

The foam fire extinguisher is ideal where a risk of fires involving both flammable liquids and ‘class A’ combustible materials are present.

Foam fire extinguishers are ineffective against “running fires” and this must be considered when designing a portable fire extinguisher system.
