(3rd February, 2012) – Safelincs, an international retailer of fire safety products such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and evacuation equipment, have launched a new range of water mist fire extinguishers on their website.

The water mist extinguisher is the first extinguisher that can tackle general fires as well as deep fat fryer fires, which are notoriously difficult to extinguish. Deep fat fryers make it currently necessary to have fire blankets or specialist wet chemical fire extinguishers in order to put them out, which means that households end up with two fire extinguishers to tackle both general and deep fat fryer fires. The water mist extinguisher, however, offers a comprehensible fire-fighting solution for both types of fires.

The water mist extinguisher contains only de-ionised water, hence leaving no residue and therefore suitable for use in food preparation areas. The water mist is also highly suitable for historic buildings, as the water mist does not saturate the objects in the building and has no harmful substances that could damage wood or soft furnishings.

A spokesperson for Safelincs commented: “Fire extinguisher technology is constantly evolving to make tackling fires easier, more environmentally-friendly, safer and less costly. The E-Series water mist fire extinguishers are taking us a great step forward, as a single extinguisher is now able to cover the vast majority of fire risks in offices and households.”
