A foam fire extinguisher of 9l counts for 1,5 extinguishing units and is therefore suited to secure larger spaces. With this extinguisher you can legally cover 1 floor of maximum 225m². If you have multiple floors or a bigger surface you need to buy additional units per floor and per 225m². Make sure that the maximum walking distance to an extinguisher is 20 meters. That is why you can only use a 6kg/l extinguisher in certain cases (1 unit cover 150m²).
A foam fire extinguisher is suitable for fire classes A (solids) and B (liquids). A major advantage of a foam fire extinguisher is that it causes very little collateral damage and can be easily disposed of after use, unlike powder fire extinguishers. Therefore, in situations where you do not need a frost-resistant fire extinguisher, it is better to opt for a foam fire extinguisher instead of a powder extinguisher.
BENOR or no BENOR?
This foam fire extinguisher 9l is approved by most European law and can therefore be used in Belgium. However, the biggest part of Belgian fire insurances and fire-safety inspectors demand that in a professional context or in mutual areas in an apartment building fire extinguishers with a BENOR-label are used. To get a BENOR-label the extinguisher needs to meet certain conditions that are specific for Belgium. If you want to be 100% sure of a positive fire-safety rapport then this fire extinguisher is the perfect choice!
When do I need an inspection sticker?
This fire extinguisher is, as mentioned above, suitable for the Belgian market (BENOR) and is available with or without an inspection sticker. Fire extinguishers that you use in a professional / public context or in common parts of apartments must be provided with an inspection sticker. Fire extinguishers that you buy at FireDiscounter including an inspection sticker must only be re-inspected one year after the invoice date.
