The 6 litre Spray Foam Fire Extinguishers from Firechief are the main competition for the water based extinguishers and provide a fast and effective means of tackling Class A and Class B fires. They come fitted with a special spray nozzle allowing them to be used close to electrical equipment, but should never be used directly onto an electrical based fire. They are the perfect accompaniment to a CO2 fire extinguisher.

The FireChief fire extinguisher is constructed from aluminium and is light weight, ruggedly constructed and comes with a 5 year guarantee as standard.

Foam fire extinguishers work by effectively extinguishing the flames and then sealing in any potentially dangerous vapours from the blaze. Most foam extinguishers are AFFF which stands for Aqueous Film Forming Foam.

They are highly effective against petrol and other volatile liquids, forming a flame smothering seal over the surface and then also preventing re-ignition. For the modern office, shop, nursing home or hotel it is well worth buying a foam fire extinguisher as it can tackle multiple classes of fire and is a lighter weight for the same fire rating in comparison to a water extinguisher.

Spray foam extinguishers are suitable for all Class A (wood, paper & cloth) & Class B (flammable liquids) fires, but should not be used on or near electrical fires.

When you need to service or refill an extinguisher, consider the price of a new one as it may work out cheaper to simply replace it.

You are under no obligation to buy from your servicing company and will in almost all cases find the exact same fire extinguisher cheaper on our site. You may already have a AFFF foam fire extinguisher manufactured by Thomas Glover which was supplied by your servicing company. Dig out the receipt and check the price. Just make sure you are sitting down when you compare the price to ours!!!

Foam Fire extinguishers are multi-purpose models that are recommended for use on Class A fires involving fuel elements such as paper, cloth or wood. They are also suitable for use on class B (flammable liquids) fires. It is recommended to have CO2 fire extinguisher alongside Foam extinguishers in office environments, shops and factory locations.

AFFF foam works by sealing the fire and thus extinguishing it. They then seal in any potentially harmful vapours and help prevent the fire from re-igniting.

Please note that foam extinguishers are not suitable for use on electrical fires involving things such as computers or machinery. They are equipped with a special nozzle allowing them to be used close to such fire hazards but care should still be taken when operating to avoid an electrical shock.

We would also recommend considering a foam fire extinguisher as part of a home safety plan as they are lighter yet have the same fire rating as a water extinguisher.
