Boat Fire Extinguishers
The fire risks found on a boat can range from solid materials (class A), flammable liquids (class B), flammable gases (class C) as well as electrical devices. As cabins can be small in size, it is important to have a single compact extinguisher that will be effective at tackling a range of fire classes.
ABC powder fire
extinguishers have always been the popular choice for locations where the
risk of fire can be from multiple sources.
Known as the multi-purpose fire extinguisher, these units are available
in a range of sizes and are generally safe to use by those who have not had
fire extinguisher training. The powder
agent suffocates fires caused by class A, B, C and electrical equipment. Although powder fire extinguishers cover the majority of fire risks, their use in a confined cabin could cause a problem. We therefore offer the dry water mist extinguisher as an alternative.
Developments in fire extinguisher technology have given users more choice over which extinguisher to install to cover a variety of fire risks. The dry water mist fire extinguisher can not only be used on class A, B, C and electrical fires but also class F fires that involve cooking oils and fats. As the extinguisher contains only de-mineralised water, the unit has the added advantage of leaving virtually no residue, and is therefore easier to clean up than other extinguisher mediums after discharge. Also, unlike the ABC powder fire extinguisher, the dry water mist is safe to use in confined spaces.
The 2kg powder fire extinguisher is lightweight and supplied with a bracket and quick release strap. Able to tackle class A, B and C type fires as well as electrical equipment, the powder fire extinguisher is also known as the multi-purpose extinguisher.

Filled with de-ionised water, dry water mist fire extinguishers feature a specially designed nozzle that allows for the extinguisher to be used on classes A, B, C, F and even electrical equipment fires. Ideal for use in kitchens, caravans and boats, the 1ltr dry water mist extinguisher is compact in size but creates an effective cooling blanket and helps to reduce the oxygen content. When used, the water is discharged as a fine mist, leaving no residue and as tiny droplets are created this means that electricity can not travel though them.
