Why should I consider compressed air foam (CAF) as a fire-fighting agent?

CAF has the following advantages over many existing fire suppression systems:

  • Not harmful to the environment
  • Improved re-flash protection
  • Does not require sealed rooms to be effective
  • Will not cause death to persons in hazard area
  •         Requires extensive clean up after activation
What is (CAF) compressed air foam?

CAF is a foam system that uses compressed gas to expand the foam at significantly higher ratios, and with a smaller more uniform bubble resulting in better coverage, as compared traditional low expansion foam systems.

Why is (CAF) Compressed Air Foam so desirable?
  • It is more efficient and less damaging than water
  • It is safe for humans and the environment
  • It is easy to clean up after discharge
  • It has excellent “re-flash” protection
  • It reflects radiated heat and holds vapors
  • It reduces the surface tension of water helping to penetrate surfaces which normally repel water
  • It cools and clings to a variety of surfaces
  • It is effective in both low and high temperature climates. 
What is the life expectancy (shelf life) of compressed air foam (CAF)?

Ten Years
