Water Mist Fire Extinguishers are now also Kitemarked

Our broad-spectrum UltraFire water mist fire extinguishers have always been rigorously tested and certified to the very latest standards. They were certified by LPCB, one of the leading international certification bodies. LPCB certification is part of the BRE (Building Research Establishment). On top of this certification, a second certification body BSI has now certified the water mist extinguishers and added their particular stamp to the product. The BSI’s certification stamp, often called the ‘kitemark’ can now be used in marketing materials and on the product. While this is superfluous to requirements, the ‘kitemark’ is a well recognised and trusted symbol and helps to market products.

Our water mist extinguishers cover a very broad spectrum of fire risks, including traditional burning solids such as wood and paper, as well as burning liquids, gas and small amount of fats. They are even safe and efficient on electrical fires (as long as a safety distance of 1m is adhered to). They tackle difficult fires, such as clothing fires and Christmas tree fires, are entirely harmless in their use and are environmentally friendly, as they only contain water. They also create a thermal shield between user and the fire and even clear the acrid smoke of fires. Safelincs recommends these extinguishers in particular for homes, kitchens, churches, schools, nurseries, although the extinguishers are, of course, also suitable for general use and office areas. Landlords also benefit from these extinguishers, as the tenants will only require one type of extinguisher for all risks and do not have to learn how to use a selection of extinguishers for the different risks. They also have the added benefit of not requiring any cleaning up should the extinguisher be set off accidentally, as the water mist disperses into the air.

The water mist extinguishers are available in three sizes: a 1 litre+ version mainly for domestic and landlord applications and a 3 and 6 litre range for businesses and organisations.

New Water Mist Fire Extinguishers

Our new UltraFire water mist fire extinguishers present a ground-breaking step in fire fighting. Using de-ionised water at low pressure, the water mist extinguishers deploys a supersonic micron nozzle to discharge 100% environmentally friendly water in a fine mist. This mist expels oxygen from the surrounding environment to cut off the supply that keeps the fire burning. Once the fire is extinguished, the water mist then acts as a cooling blanket to soak into the burning fuel and prevent re-ignition.

After discharging a water mist fire extinguisher, the clean-up is quick and easy, with most of the water agent evaporating upon contact with the fire. These extinguishers are perfect for kitchens and food prep areas (where traditional powder or wet chemicals would usually leave a messy, poisonous residue and may involve having to shut down for a period) or areas where the contents are paper based or valuable. The extinguishers are also suitable for boats and other confined spaces. The LPCB approval on these extinguishers certifies ratings of up to 13A, 21B (on the 6 litre model), unheard of for water fire extinguishers. Having passed a 35kV dielectrical test, water mist extinguishers are safe to use around electrical equipment without endangering the user.
