Foam Fire Extinguishers

Click to play video

AFFF Fire Extinguishers and Foam Fire Extinguishers are two names for the same thing – but be careful, because AFFF extinguishers contain a proportion of water, so they are not recommended for fires where live electricity is involved.

A foam fire extinguisher can be used to fight Class A fires involving wood, paper, textiles, coal or similar materials, as well as Class B flammable liquid fires. That makes them more versatile than water extinguishers, and a lighter and smaller alternative for an equivalent fire risk.

We supply foam fire extinguishers in sizes from 1 litre to 9 litres. Some are available in stainless steel, for use in specialist locations like design-led interiors, hospitals and applications where hygiene and corrosion resistance are paramount.

If you’re unsure about where it’s safe to deploy AFFF Foam Extinguishers, visit our advice page on foam fire extinguishers or call us on 01724 281044.

A foam fire extinguisher discharges a premixed foam solution under pressure that forms a blanket of foam on the surface of a burning liquid creating a chemical barrier between the fire vapours and the air oxygen necessary to support combustion thereby smothering the fire. Foam fire extinguisher are colour coded with a cream label.

Using a foam fire extinguisher on Class B liquid fires (petrol, oils etc.).

  1. Pull out the retaining pin (this will break the plastic "pull tight" securinty seal) and squeeze the grip to discharge the extinguisher
  2. If the liquid on fire is in a container, direct the spray at the back edge of the container surface above the level of the burning liquid. This allows the foam blanket to build up and flow across the surface of the liquid to smother the fire.
  3. If the fire is not contained stand well back, direct the spray over the fire with a gentle sweeping movement, allowing the foam to drop down and lie on the surface of the burning liquid. (This procedure should also be used to tackle Class A type fires involving solids).
  4. Do not aim the spray directly into the liquid as this will drive the foam beneath the liquid surface and render it ineffective. Aiming the foam directly into the liquid may splash burning liquid onto the surroundings, potentially spreading the fire.
