Foam Fire Extinguishers - Key Points: 

- Red Body (Can also be provided in Chrome finish) 

- Suitable for Class A and Class B fires  

- Extinguishes fires by cooling and smothering 

- NOT suitable for electrical fires unless specifically rated 

Foam Fire Extinguishers are suitable for Class A fires (paper, wood & textiles) and Class B (flammable liquids).  The AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) foam works to extinguish fires by cooling and smothering the fire.  

For information on ‘What do fire extinguisher ratings mean?’ please follow the link. 

Foam fire extinguishers are not recommended for fighting Class F fires (involving, for example, cooking oils and grease), or fighting Class C fires (flammable gases, for example, butane and methane). It is also highly advised that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers or Dry Powder fire extinguishers are used on electrical fires.
