FOAM(AFFF) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
9LT PRESSURE TYPE
AFFF Fire Extinguishers and Foam Fire Extinguishers are two names for the same thing.
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.
