Extinguishing agents can be found in solid, liquid or gaseous forms. When combined with fire suppressing systems or fire sprinkler systems, they are highly effective in putting out fires
Dry Chemical Powder
The mono ammonium phosphate-based powders are generally for multipurpose use and are suitable for extinguishing Class A, B and C fires.
- Class A foams are mostly used to fight wild fires. They assist in the wetting and saturation of Class A fuels with water, which aids fire suppression and can prevent re-ignition. Class A foams are available for use with Safequips range of skid units.
- Class B foams are best suited for putting out fires that involve flammable liquids.
- Synthetic foams provide better flow and faster knockdown of flames, but offer limited post-fire security.
- Protein foams are biodegradable. They flow and spread slower than synthetic foam, but provide a heat resistant foam blanket and are more durable.
