Wet chemical fire extinguishers are the preferred type of extinguisher in any commercial kitchen using deep fat or cooking oil (Class F). All sizes are Kitemarked to BS EN3 and CE Marked for your piece of mind. Suitable also for use on Class A type fires; fuelled by solid materials such as wood, paper, straw etc.
Our wet chemical fire extinguishers are provided with a 5 year fire extinguisher warranty and wall mounting bracket as standard.
A wet chemical fire extinguisher, or class F extinguisher as it is also called, causes a chemical reaction between the fat and the extinguishing chemical, called saponification. This seals the surface of the burning oil and prevents re-ignition. Recognisable by the yellow colour coding, another important feature of a wet chemical fire extinguisher is the controlled discharge, much slower than other extinguishers, such as water or foam, to prevent splashing when discharged.
