Fire Extinguishers

Recommended Posts

Saw these composite fire extinguishers at a show today. Purposely chose a web link from a different company though. 


maybe more beneficial in a salt water marine environment but I like the idea of not having to worry about corrosion!! Price and whether they will pass a BSC might be an issue. 

I did ask about fm-200 gas alternatives for engine bays and he said the foam was the best option and they had fitted some!!! Not on my boat it won't be!!!

i am sure there will be some comments but just my opinion as usual:default_beerchug:

There is another new type besides the one I put up a few months ago where you pop it in a pan fire and it kills the fire.

This is a ball and look like the size if a kids football, which blows up on fire. These can be mounted in the engine bays or in the exit on a boat so they can be throw back in as you leave.


I've not come across this type in years of buying for buildings etc till this year and just seen some for around £40,

FM-200 is ideal in comms rooms and is down to 30 psi compared to 160bar 6 foot bottles they replaced. We had a comms room which made of 6 portakabins as one room with 8 of these 160 bar bootle and I waited for the day they went off to see it blown down like a pack of cards
