Fighting Fires in Every Environment

World Wide Fire Fighting Foams & Specialist EquipmentThere is no universal solution for extinguishing fires. Different types of fire demand different responses. The challenges of house fires, chemical or electrical fires, forest fires and industrial fires, for example, each pose specific risks.

Water is still an effective method of extinguishing Class A Fires involving material such as paper, wood or textiles. Unfortunately water is not always freely available in the quantities required to safely extinguish large fires. Forest fires and heathland fires particularly may be in areas well away from a natural water source.

  • 3F have developed a range of additives to vastly improve the efficiency of water in extinguishing fires. Fire fighting foams produced by 3F are designed to have a minimal environmental impact making them amongst the greenest fire fighting products on the market.
