If you’re confronted with a fire, you need to be confident that your Extinguisher is manufactured to the highest level of quality. FireSafe Foam Extinguishers are assembled in Australia under an accredited ISO 9001 Quality Management System and are approved to AS/NZS 1841.
   Foam Extinguishers are specifically designed and effective for use on Class B fires involving flammable and combustible liquids such as petrol, oil and some paints and can also be used to blanket a spill to prevent ignition. Because of its conductivity, foam must not be used where live electrical current is present.
  With a wide range of sizes and equipment types available, there is a FireSafe Extinguisher to suit practically every fire risk in the home, car, caravan or boat to the largest commercial and industrial property.

Identification: Pre 1998 - Red with centre BLUE Band, Post 1998 - Red with upper level BLUE Band.

Advantages: Being water based, this extinguisher is also ideal where cooling a fuel is recommended. Foam is also effective in restricting the spread of 'ignitable vapours' from a flammable liquid spill. Refer to the Suitability Guide below.

Disadvantages: Not suitable where live electrical current is present.

Servicing: Inspection and maintenance is to be performed at regular six monthly intervals as required by Australian Standard AS 1851 by an authorised or Licenced Contractor.

FEATURES FUNCTIONS BENEFITS
VALVE ASSEMBLY Contain cylinder pressure and contents of the extinguisher

a. Simple "Pull Pin/ Squeeze Lever' operation.

b. Requires less than 200 N of 'squeeze pressure' to operate.

c. Controllable discharge - operator can cease discharge and restart discharge if required.

d. Fully rechargeable.

Valve Block
Contains all associated valve abd discharge components

a. Chrome plated/ forged brass for maximum corrosion protection.

b. Material high strength/durable.

Handle & Lever Assy.
Enables extinguisher to be carried and operated.

a. Securely fitted to valve block for minimum wear in high vibration areas.

b. Powder coated for additional corrosion protection.

Pressure Indicator
Provide visual indication of cylinder pressure

a. Solid one piece thread and indicator casing.

b. Casing manufactured from high strength Brass for maximum corrosion protection.

c. Reliable and accurate mechanical operation.

d. Will withstand minor impact.

e. Secondary O Ring seal for reduced risk of leakage.

f. Capable of accurate 'In Field' testing.

Schrader Valve
For pressurising the extinguisher.

a. Neatly positioned under carry handle - prevents accidental impact damage.

b. Replaceable sealing spindle.

c. Can be pressurised using car tyre adaptor.

Safety Pin
Prevent accidental discharge

a. Manufactured from high strength Stainless Steel for maximum corrosion protection.

b. Attached to valve by retaining cord.

c. Removable even after direct valve lever impact of at least 4.0kg mass from height of at least 0.7 metre.

Discharge Hose Assembly
Direct extinguishing chemical to seat of fire when discharged.

a. Manufactured from UV resistant material for long service life.

b. Fitted with aerated nozzle engineered to produce high quality 'finished foam'.

CYLINDER Contain the extinguishing chemical and propellant.

a. High strength 1.0mm wall thickness, non corrosive stainless steel cylinder:

- approx 20% heavier than competitor product.

- Over 50% more than minimum AS1841 wall thickness requirement (0.6mm).

b. High Tensile Strength SS Sheet - 686 MPa.

c. Average cylinder destruction burst pressure of 7.5 MPa:

- at least 3 times test pressure (2.5MPa)

- exceeds minimum burst by 30% (5.8MPa)

Polyester Powder Coat Paint
Colour in compliance with AS 1841.

a. UV and fade resistant - maintains AS1841 compliance for longer 'in service life' and lower maintenance costs.

b. Increased external corrosion resistance.
