Firechief launches new type of fire extinguisher

Emily and Olivia

    At only 7.8kg in weight, the new Firechief F-Plus fire extinguisher is up to 25 percent lighter than similar extinguishers on the market due to its aluminium, corrosive free body.

    It also has the added benefit of being a completely new type of fire extinguisher. Known as a multi-class extinguisher, it contains a unique solution to tackle wood, paper and textile fires (A Class fires) as well as flammable liquids such as paint and petrol (Class B fires) and cooking fat and oil fires (Class F fires) equally well. Traditionally these different types of fire would have needed three different types of extinguisher – water, foam and wet chemical – to fight them effectively.
