CheckFire Ltd, a trade-only fire safety supplier, has announced the release of its latest product innovation, the enviroFoam fire extinguisher range.

This new line is notable for being fluorine-free, addressing growing concerns over the environmental and health impacts of Per- and PolyFluoroAlkylated Substances (PFAS) found in traditional fire extinguishers.

Responding to environmental concerns with fluorine-free solutions

The development of the enviroFoam range represents CheckFire’s commitment to providing fire safety solutions that are not only effective against Class B flammable liquid fires but also environmentally responsible.

PFAS, commonly used in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) fire extinguishers, have been linked to significant environmental and health risks, prompting increased regulatory scrutiny and bans on certain PFAS chemicals since 2020.

The CommanderEDGE enviroFoam range: safety without compromise

CheckFire’s CommanderEDGE enviroFoam range offers a timely solution to these challenges.

As regulations tighten on the use of PFAS-containing products, the enviroFoam range emerges as an ideal option for businesses seeking to maintain high fire safety standards while also enhancing their environmental stewardship.

Available in 6ltr and 9ltr sizes, these extinguishers are designed to meet the diverse needs of various industries, including industrial warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and laboratories.

Exceeding industry standards with enviroFoam

The enviroFoam extinguishers boast an impressive 27A 183B rating for the 9ltr unit and 27A 144B for the 6ltr, surpassing industry standards for combating Class B fires.

Additionally, the range is certified with the internationally recognised BS Kitemark, affirming its quality and reliability.

A commitment to eco-conscious fire safety

Toria Jones, head of marketing at CheckFire, emphasised the importance of the launch: “With the potential upcoming changes in legislation, we wanted to be prepared with a more eco-conscious product line.

“That’s why we’ve developed our Green Range to support businesses looking to improve their sustainability efforts.”
