Fluorine-free foam

Foam fire extinguishers are well-known for their ability to combat Class B fires. As people begin to look for alternatives that don’t contain PFAs, it raises the concern of what should replace them. The challenge has been that, for a long time, it seemed as though no environmentally friendly alternative provided all of the same benefits as foam fire extinguishers containing PFAs. 

Our fluorine-free foam fire extinguishers are designed to meet the need for more environmentally friendly fire-fighting options while still providing the ability to tackle fires consistently and effectively. The medium in these extinguishers is completely fluorine-free, fully biodegradable, and EN 1568-1/2/3/4 compliant.  

The cutting-edge technology behind our fluorine-free foam fire extinguishers ensures that you are always equipped with optimal firefighting power and consistent quality, all without the harmful environmental impact of PFAs.   


If you are looking for environmentally friendly firefighting options, then water has been the obvious choice for many years. The issue with water-based fire extinguishers is that they can be somewhat limited in their effectiveness. Traditional water fire extinguishers are only really suitable for extinguishing Class A fires.  

For an environmentally friendly option that is a little more versatile, then you may want to look at our range of water mist fire extinguishers. These extinguishers use de-ionised water that is released as an extremely fine mist. This makes them able to tackle a wide range of fires, including cooking fires. Because de-ionised water has very low conductivity, you can even use water mist fire extinguishers on electrical fires without the risk of electric shock.  

Water mist fire extinguishers are an excellent choice for indoor environments where clean-up is a significant factor.  

Clean agent

Our clean agent fire extinguishers contain Fluoroketone. Flouroketone, or FK, is one of the most versatile extinguisher mediums on the market. It is completely safe to use on sensitive electronic equipment and is suitable for use on Class A, B, and C fires.  

For businesses looking to protect their servers and other electronics, FK-based fire extinguishers are often the ideal choice thanks to their lightweight design and the power to penetrate past fine grills and meshes. It doesn’t leave behind any residue at all and has zero ODP, or Ozone Depletion Potential.  

Our FK-based clean agent fire extinguishers are the perfect way to help you go green without sacrificing your safety. 

Environmentally friendly fire extinguishers

In the modern world, making environmentally conscious choices is often a high priority, and your fire protection solutions should be no exception. Unfortunately, many firefighting options aren’t as environmentally friendly as many of us would like. 

Firefighting foam that contains PFAs, or Per- and Polyfluorinated Substances, can harm the environment and even cause serious health issues. However, those aren’t the only options available. At Fire Protection Shop, we are extremely proud of our range of effective, eco-friendly, PFAs free fire extinguishers.   

The dangers of PFAS

PFAs are a group of man-made chemicals that have been used in a wide range of industries for many years. They are known for their resistance to heat, oil, water, and stains, making them ideal for applications like firefighting foams, as well as non-stick pans and waterproof clothing. However, the same properties that make PFAs effective have also led to their classification as Persistent Organic Pollutants or POPs. PFAs don’t break down in the environment, which means that they can very easily contaminate the soil and water sources. 

For many years PFAs have been a central part of conventional fire-fighting foams. While these foams have proven effective in rapidly extinguishing Class A and B fires, it has become increasingly clear that they are also having a significant environmental impact. 

PFAs that persist in the soil and water can then enter the human body. Studies have linked PFA exposure to a range of negative health effects, including developmental issues, immune system suppression, and potential links to certain types of cancer.  

The benefits of environmentally friendly fire extinguishers

Environmentally friendly extinguishers don't contain harmful chemical substances

The most significant issue with PFAs is that they persist in the environment and then enter the bodies of people and animals. Our eco-friendly fire extinguishers don’t leave behind any chemical residue that could cause potential health issues. 

They bring you further in-line with future legislation

While there are no specific regulations in place yet about the use of fire extinguishers that contain PFAs, it is likely that within the next several years, new legislation will come into place. By embracing greener alternatives, you can future-proof your organisation against upcoming changes to the law. 

Help to encourage greener practices in general

From commercial to domestic settings, becoming more environmentally conscious is something many of us are dedicated to. By building your fire protection processes from the ground up with the environment in mind, you can ensure that every aspect of your premises is as environmentally friendly as possible.

Frequently asked questions

Q. How many products contain PFAs? Open

A. Alongside many foam fire extinguishers, PFAs can be found in non-stick cookware, cleaning products, water-resistant fabrics, and personal care products like shampoo and nail polish. 

Q. How long do PFAs last? Open

A. Some PFAs can take more than 1000 years to break down. 

Q. What is fluorine-free foam made from? Open

A. Fluorine-free foam is constructed from hydrocarbons, similar to fluorinated foam. However, it is completely free of fluorosurfactant, allowing it to break down much more easily while still extinguishing fires effectively. 

Q. Are PFAs illegal? Open

A. There are currently no laws surrounding the sale of products containing PFAs. However, this may change in the future.
