SOLAS Approved Fire Extinguishers
SOLAS Approved fire extinguishers are needed for many vessels.
The types of Marine fire extinguishers approved include dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide. The equipment on your vessel and your boat’s construction are factors in determining which extinguisher would be most effective. Be sure to discuss your fire extinguisher options with a trained professional to choose the best fire safety devices for your application.
Dry Chemical Powder Fire Extinguishers are suitable for fighting class A,B and E fires. ABE powder extinguishers have a very good firefighting capacity.
AFFF Foam Class A:B extinguisher. Apply to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response.
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers are the best kitchen fire extinguishers. They have been tested and approved for Class F specifically for kitchen hazards. They contain a potassium acetate based agent.
Carbon Dioxide is discharged as a white cloud of “snow” which smothers a fire by eliminating oxygen. It is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Carbon Dioxide is a clean, non-contaminating, odourless gas.
