Caravan Fire Extinguishers
Caravans and campervans hold a variety of contents that could fuel a fire. Although powder fire extinguishers are a popular choice for covering multiple classes of fire, they are not ideal in a caravan or campervan. This is due to the confined space typically found in this location and the danger of inhaling powder combined with poor visibility when the extinguisher is discharged.
Foam fire extinguishers, on the other hand, form a cooling blanket over the burning fuel and effectively smother the flames to prevent re-ignition. Compared to powder, the foam produces a “cleaner” extinguishing result and does not affect the user’s breathing or visibility. Foam fire extinguishers are suitable for use on solid combustible and flammable liquid fires. It is important to check that the extinguisher has passed the 35kV electrical conductivity test to ensure that it is safe for use on electrical equipment.
If you would prefer to install an extinguisher that leaves virtually no residue and is capable of tackling multiple classes of fire, then the dry water mist fire extinguisher is the answer. Available as a 1ltr unit, the dry water mist extinguisher is lightweight and compact in size. The de-mineralised water is discharged as tiny droplets and the fine mist of water cools the hot fuel and reduces the oxygen content. The dry water mist extinguisher can be used on class A, B, C, F and electrical equipment fires.
Foam Fire Extinguishers are designed for use in motor vehicles, caravans and workshops as well as office environments. Foam extinguishers are suitable for both class A and class B fire so can be used on combustible solids and combustible liquids such as petrol (not for chip pan fires).

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.
