Here you can find the cheapest powder extinguishers, for privateand professionaluse! A foam extinguisher is recommended for the following fire classes:
- Fire class A: Solid organic materials such as paper, wood, plastic, coal, straw...
- Fire class B: Liquids such as oil, alcohol, gasoline, fats, bitumen, etc.
Foam extinguishers have a high extinguishing capacity and are very efficient on class A and B fires (solids and liquids). They also cause less collateral damage than powder fire extinguishers, and you can easily clean up the foam yourself. It's therefore better to choose a foam extinguisher instead of a powder extinguisher if there's no risk of gas fires and you're in a frost-free environment.
Careful: do you want to use the fire extinguisher in a professional (office, shop...) or public context (communal areas of the building, student rooms...)? Then choose a fire extinguisher with a BENOR-certificate! That way you'll always adhere to the fire regulations and your insurance!
