  1. Good afternoon,I have given for my grandma a 2l abf foam extinguisher for the kitchen,and 1 need other 2 units(small of course),even a 2 litre size is heavy for her,I was thinking the one at the corridor a 1 litre water mist and the second one at the living room the thing that worries me if this unit extinguishes only too small fires ,it hasn't got an a rating only a "5f"thanks very much.
  2. Hi, I don't know if installing a 2 litre AFFF foam extinguishers plus fire blanket and smoke alarms or I need to go for a 6 litre model? The apartment has 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and 1 small kitchen and a sizable living room. What should I choose? Thanks very much
  3. Why powder extinguishers are still sold? If AFFF is best... They told me that for general multirisk protection of shops offices or hotels powder is not recommended. What about for a home? Is it OK to install 2 x 6 litres AFFF and 1xCo2?can I have a 2kg powder in my car? Can I use foam spray on live electrical equipment up to 1000v at at least 1m? Is AFFF toxic or carcinogenic? Is true that ABC powder does not extinguish well class A fires? Are water based models better at this? Thanks
  4. Is a Co2 extinguisher safe for a confined space such as a subway station? We're planning to put cartridge 9l foam extinguishers + 2kg Co2? Are These when discharges dangerous enough to result in asphyxiation? Another alternative we didn't like was dry powder, it's very messy! You may reccomemd me water mist, but fire ratings are EXTREMELY LOW! what about inside the trains? What should I install?
  5. Both have a solution mixed in water for example most foam are AFFF which makes it suitable for class A and B fires What is the main difference with water additive? Why water additive cannot be used on flammable liquid? (water may spread?) Thanks
  6. It's Madrid, Spain What can u recommend me instead Thanks
  7. In the local fire brigade i was told installing in private family homes a fire kit which consists of: -smoke alarms -fire blanket -powder extinguisher (if possible 4-6kg) I'm doubting powder because I was told in this forum the risk of inhalation of powder so its dismissed for commercial premises. And it is recomended for a home? Powder is for multiple fire risks such as homes? Are dry-water mist just too expensive? However dry powder is non toxic, isn't it? Thanks for help
  8. This building was built in 2005, but they changed extinguishers as they expired, We have also an electric counter and a garage, despite this fire risks are not too high. I don't know if installing a 9 litre AFFF or a 6kg ABC powder on each level on the stairs and in the garage 6kg ABC and in the counter room 5kg co2. I'm also planning a wiring alarm system. There is also an emergency stairs. Is there anything special that I should install. Better 9l AFFF or 6kg ABC? As I say it's relatively new building so passive protection is not a problem. Thanks
  9. We have a 2 floor hair salon we've just opened and we have to install fire equipment but I'm not sure which extinguisher will do the best. Let me explain the fire risk present on here: Class A:very likely to have such as fabric paper or wood is very present here. Class B:not common but can happen, Ej:paints, hair ink, aerosols, and so on Class C:unlikely Class F:uncommon Live electrics:very common as we use lots of electric machinery. Water ones are good but I dismiss them as they cannot fight flammable liquids. AFFF and co2 would be great but dry powder is not a bad idea Is there any problem indoors against law with British standard? (or simply not recommended) thanks for solving all my doubts.
