Class A fires cover combustible materials such as wood, cardboard, paper etc and are often created by carelessness with lighters or candles. These can be extremely dangerous on boats but in most cases do not require a large powder style extinguisher, and this is where the gel based FireEx Marine is the perfect solution


Class C refers to gas fires such as butane, methane or propane. Gas fires on boats are a realsitic and catastrophic danger. The key here is to remove the fuel source by shutting off the gas supply. Once this has been done FireEx Marine can then be used to safely extinguish the fire without causing further damage to your boat


Class B refers to flammable liquids and in the marine world will typically mean a petrol/gasoline fire or accelerants such as lighter fluid in our barbecue example here. These fires have a high risk for spreading quickly so the ability for FireEx Marine to not only extinguish but also to contain the spread is vital to prevent the loss of the vessel.


A class D fire means combustible metals such as magnesium, titanium, potassium, and lithium. Class D fires can not be extinguished by standard ABC powder fire extinguishers which is one of the main benefits of having FireEx Marine as a first-response solution that can safely extinguish a fire of this type


Electrical fires are another type of fire that are not covered by typical ABC powder extinguishers on boats. Water should also not be used as this can cause further damage to the onboard electical systems. FireEx Marine is suitable for electical fires of up to 1,000 Watts and can quickly and easily solve the problem.


Class F fires are cooking fats/chip pan fires. Almost always will originate in the ships galley and is one of the most dangerous threats on board.  ABC powder fire extinguishers can spread the fat/oil making things much worse, while adding water to these fires as this will vaporise and greatly increase the danger. FireEx Marine quickly contains and extinguish these fires.
