Effective Fire Fighting Foams & Equipment

3F are specialists in the design, manufacture and supply of fire fighting chemicals and equipment. With regional offices in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, 3F work with industrial partners and fire fighting organisations all around the world.

Fighting Fires in Every Environment

There is no universal medium for fighting fires and different types of fire demand different responses. The challenges of fighting a domestic house fire are completely different to those for fighting a warehouse blaze. Similarly, the risks associated with a forest fire are worlds away from those involved in a fire in a petrochemical plant.

3F are at the forefront of developing technical solutions to combating fires in the most challenging of environments.

Environmentally Friendly Fire Fighting Solutions

Water is still an effective method of extinguishing Class A Fires involving paper, wood and textiles. Unfortunately water is not always freely available in the quantities required to safely extinguish large scale fires such as forest fires and heathland fires that may be in areas well away from a natural water source.

3F have developed a range of additives that greatly improves the efficiency of water in extinguishing fires. Other chemical solutions used to tackle forest fires can be more environmentally damaging that the fire itself. Fire fighting foams produced by 3F are designed to have a minimal environmental impact making them amongst the greenest fire fighting products available on the market.

Fire Fighting Foams, Chemicals and Extinguishers

Water is not an appropriate fire fighting solution for combating many other forms of fire. Indeed, in many instances, adding water to the flames would lead to catastrophic results. For this reason, 3F have developed a range of chemical products, fuorosurfactants and foams designed to control and extinguish petrol & oil fires, electrical fires and fires involving flammable gases and metals.

3F has over 20 years experience in developing fire fighting foams and chemical extinguishers. We sell more than 30 products including standard foams, AFFF and alcohol resistant solutions. In recent years, 3F have developed hi-ex foams and a new line of ecologically friendly foams.

Always looking for new applications of newer technologies, 3F have also designed innovative solutions for toxic gas containment, oil dispersion, coastline protection, foam breakdown, antifreeze protection, concrete expansion and particles dispersion control.

Fire Extinguishers & Fire Fighting Delivery Systems

Fire Extinguishers & Fire Fighting Delivery Systems

3F lead the way in the design of fire extinguishers and fire fighting delivery systems. We offer a comprehensive range of fire extinguishers designed for combating Class A, B, and F ratings that comply to EN3 standards.

Engineers and innovators at 3F have developed a fantastic range of fire fighting delivery systems designed to work in the most demanding environments.

FAS Fire Attack Systems are a range of high pressure water & foam units that deliver foam and water at pressures up to 200 bar (3000psi) with a flow rate of 14-50 litres/min. The FAS Mini & the FAS Ultra are portable units that can be fitted to trucks or trailers. The FAS Max is a 4x4 vehicle that can be quickly deployed in difficult terrain while the FAS Trakker is an off-road tracked vehicle designed for the most hostile environments.

As part of our comprehensive range of fire fighting equipment, 3F also stock and sell CDT Triton, Cameleon and Salamandre advanced foam dosing systems.

Pumps, Generators & Specialist Fire Fighting Equipment

At 3F we offer an extensive choice of HYFLO water & foam pumps capable of supplying up to 2300 litres/min at 7 Bar (100psi). We have foam trolleys, handy foam portable units and foam chambers.

3F have developed a range of specialised foam and water delivery lances designed for tackling fires in confined spaces such as engine compartments or penetrating hidden fires including peat fires and thatch fires.

A recent product to the market is the 'Hotspotter' heat detector. This is an easy-to-use hand-held device designed for personal protection.
