Foam Fire Extinguishers

What is a foam fire extinguisher used for?

Foam Fire Extinguishers are a great choice for a huge variety of applications.  With a faster knockdown than water extinguishers, they also carry a Class B fire rating making them suitable for use on flammable liquid fires.

From the compact 2ltr Foam commonly used in vehicles to the superbly capable 9ltr Foam unit for high-risk areas, there is a wide range of sizes and options available. Our high-performance 6ltr Envirofoam is a star, with huge performance yet being completely environmentally friendly too!

Our most popular range, we have a huge selection of foam extinguishers in stock at unbeatable prices.  We deliver nationwide and offer trusted and dependable service.

How do Foam Extinguishers work?

Foam Extinguishers work by removing the heat from Class A fires, and by forming a film over the surface of flammable liquids they remove oxygen from Class B fires. 

However, foam extinguishers contain detergent so it’s important to try to prevent the foam from getting into watercourses.  

Most of our Foam Fire Extinguishers at Life Safety Online has also passed the 35kVa Dielectric Test, meaning they are safe for inadvertent use on live electrical equipment up to 1000V at a distance of 1m.
