9L Foam Fire Extinguisher effective method to combat Class B fires. Foam fire extinguishers are effective by reducing the temperature of the burning fuel so it is below its ignition point. They can also be used for Class A fires which include wood, plastic, textiles, and paper.
Foam fire extinguishers, by comparison, contain foam that forms a film rapidly. This knocks down flames. The film on top of the foam seals in vapours and prevents the fire from getting oxygen, so that it can’t reignite. All foam fire extinguishers are a good solution for situations where both class A and B fires.
Where to Use 9L Eco Foam Fire Extinguisher?
Foam fire extinguishers can be used for fires involving organic materials. These organic materials include cardboard, paper, fabrics, wood & coal. In addition to these organic materials, foam extinguishers can also be used on flammable liquids including petrol or paint.
Foam fire extinguishers are required for buildings where flammable liquids are stored and held. In addition to this, they are also required in buildings where organic materials are found. Common buildings that need foam fire extinguishers are:
- Office Buildings
How to Use 9L Eco Foam Extinguishers?
Foam fire extinguishers work in two ways. Firstly, they create a cooling effect on the fuel that is responsible for causing the fire. Secondly, when this extinguisher is used on burning liquids, the foaming agent inside the extinguisher (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) creates a barrier between the flames of the fire and the fuel. This ultimately extinguishes the fire.
Where to store 9L Eco Foam Fire Extinguishers?
Foam fire extinguishers should be stored at exit points where either a class A or class B fire risk has been identified.

ABE Dry Chemical Powder fire extinguishers, which are the most common type, are effective against Class A (ordinary fires), Class B (flammable fuel fires), and Class E (electrical fires). Class D fire extinguishers are needed in industrial facilities where ignitable metals are present, and Class F extinguishers are required to fight grease fires in commercial kitchens. The minimum walking distance between fire extinguishers depends on the fire threat level in your property.

Foam fire extinguishers should never be used on fires that involve live electrical equipment. Foam fire extinguishers work by forming a layer over the top of the burning substance which stops the fire by cutting off access to oxygen.
Foam fire extinguishers are effective by reducing the temperature of the burning fuel so it is below its ignition point.
9 kg dry chemical fire extinguishers can be used on the following types of fire: Class A fires – Ordinary combustibles Class B fires – Flammable and combustible liquids Class E fires – Electrically energised equipment
