Foam fire extinguishers are effective against Class A (wood, paper and cloth) and Class B fires (petrol, paraffin and oil). These fire extinguishers are widely used in Birmingham offices and homes. They work by starving the fire of oxygen. However, these extinguishers are not suitable for fires involving electrical devices.
Suitable for the following Fire Classes:
- Class A: Ordinary combustibles: wood, paper, cloth, rubber and plastics
- Class B: Flammable liquids: Oil, petrol, greases, oil-based paints
Foam (AFFF Foam) fire extinguishers are an excellent choice when dealing with burning liquids and/or highly flammable materials like a synthetic fibre carpet.
