Cold Fire Extinguisher

Anyone have any experience with them? Seems perfect for boat extinguisher.

Seems very neat. You can even buy concentrates and refill your old extinguisher. Material doesnt expire but you should still do regular extinguisher tests.

Re: Cold fire extinguisher

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Ashura.

Portable fire extinguishers are generally approved for marine use by:
Transport Canada
Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
Underwriters Laboratories Canada (ULC)
United States Coast Guard (for marine use)
British Board of Trade (for marine Use)

Classes B & C are required aboard, in Canada; whilst Class A are recommended.

Class A fires are combustible solids such as wood, fiberglass, cloth, etc.
Class B fires are flammable liquids such as gasoline, diesel, oil etc.
Class C fires are electrical
