Safety equipment supplier Safelincs has added a 'dry' water mist fire extinguisher to its range of fire safety equipment which can be used on almost every type of fire, including deep fat fryer fires.
Jewel E-Series Water Mist Fire Extinguishers, available in 3 litre and 6 litre sizes, are designed to be used on almost every common fire, including deep fat fryer fires. Safelincs claims they are perfect for commercial kitchens, as they contain no harmful substances and leave no residues.
The extinguisher works by the nozzle dispersing microscopic 'dry' water mist particles to suppress fires and extinguish burning materials. The 35kV dielectrical test ensures that the extinguishers can be safely used near electrical equipment.
Because the product being sprayed is water, it does not leave harmful fumes, residues, or the same mess as some chemical extinguishers after use. It is also multi-purpose, being suitable for so many types of fires and therefore eliminates the need to have multiple fire extinguishers in a kitchen.
The 3 litre E-Series Water Mist Fire Extinguisher is £114.99 and the 6 litre is £144.99. Both prices include VAT.

The extinguishers are LPCB approved to EN3 and come with a five year warranty.
Why should you buy it?
Safelincs says: "Statistics show that more fires start in kitchens than anywhere else. Traditionally, wet chemical extinguishers have been recommended for cooking fires that are being fuelled by oil and fat.They are effective but leave a residue that has to be thoroughly cleaned before any more cooking or food preparation can be undertaken. It may even mean temporarily closing down the kitchen.
"The Jewel E-Series Water Mist Fire Extinguishers leave no residue so there are no fumes or residues to contend with. The water mist can also protect the user from heat."
