Where can wet chemical fire extinguishers be used and what sizes are available? Here at Firemart we offer three sizes of wet chemical free extinguishers: the small and compact 2ltr, medium 3ltr and larger 6ltr fire extinguisher.
You can choose the size of the fire extinguisher based upon your needs. For example, a small 2ltr fire extinguisher would be ideal for a catering van or small kitchen whereas the larger 6ltr fire extinguisher would be more suited to a larger industrial kitchen.
How will I recognise a wet chemical fire extinguisher? Wet chemical fire extinguishers all feature a usage label that will include a bright yellow strip which indicates the fire extinguisher type and usage.
You will also want to include a wet chemical fire extinguisher id sign above the fire extinguisher.
How do wet chemical fire extinguishers work?
wet chemical f-class fire extinguishers release a foam when they are operated. The foam forms a layer over the top of the fire effectively sealing the fire and removing the oxygen from the fire. Without the oxygen, the fire is no longer able to burn and will be extinguished.
Wet chemical fire extinguishers are often called ‘F’ class fire extinguishers and they have an ‘F’ class fire rating which is showing as a number followed by the letter F. The letter indicates that the fire extinguisher can be used on Class F (wet chemical fires). For example, the letter and number combination 75F means that the fire extinguisher is suitable for up to 75 litres of oil. The larger the number, the larger the fire that it will extinguish.Read More

The person who is responsible for fire safety is known as the ‘responsible person’. As the responsible person you must:
Non-domestic premises include all workplaces and commercial premises such as offices etc, any properties that the public have access to such as hotels etc., the common areas of residential buildings e.g. the staircases and hallways of shared blocks of flats etc.
If there are several occupants of the same building then there may more than one person who is responsible for fire safety and all of the responsible persons must share fire safety information to ensure the safety of all building occupants and users.
Fire safety plans, fire risk assessments and fire safety training should all be updated on a regular basis. If the premises are extended or changed or their usage changes then it may be necessary to review sooner than planned.Read More
