This fire extinguisher has passed the 35kV Di-electrical test. It is safe for use on live electrical equipment of up to 1000V at a distance of 1meter. However, it is still possible to be electrocuted from the foam on the floor that is in contact with live electric current. Hence, it is always important to turn off all sources of electricity.

Every year, statistics from SCDF indicated that there is almost one kitchen fire each day. Over the years, the most common reason for not getting a fire extinguisher is because it is too bulky. Today, that changes.

Coming from Italy, the Hercules 2 Litre foam fire extinguisher is the lightest and most powerful fire extinguisher of its class – Capable of fighting Class A, B and F fires.

25% Lighter. Rust free. Beautiful Aluminium.

One single sheet of aluminum is deep drawn to create the seamless body of the fire extinguisher. A feat of engineering, this means no welding is required and that there is no possible point of leakage from the body.

Not just lighter, but Powerful & Clean.

Using premium fire fighting foams, this fire extinguisher is not just the lightest of its class but the most formidable one as well. After putting out the fire, just wipe away with a cloth. Minimal clean up is required.

Note: The Hercules 2L Foam Kitchen fire extinguisher is made specifically for home use.

If you need a Kitchen fire extinguisher for your commercial kitchen, what you should be looking for is the Hercules 6L Wet Chemical Kitchen Fire Extinguisher.

Where can I use this fire extinguisher?

The Hercules 2L Foam fire extinguisher is the perfect solution for small fires. Its size and weight makes it easy even for children to handle though we don’t quite recommend it as fires can be dangerous and unpredictable. With its small form, it can be stored easily in the kitchen or living room without being too much of an obstacle to movement. This fire extinguisher is only for personal home use.


What type of fire can I use this fire extinguisher for?

Class A Fire Class A 
Combustible fires such as wood, newspaper, books, tyres, plastics, etc.
Class B Fire Class B
Flammable liquids such as small amounts of paint and cooking oil.
Class C Fire Class C
Gas fires from your cooking gas. Note: Turn off the gas before fighting fire*
Class E Fires Class E
Electric fires. Note: Turn off the electricity before fighting fire*
Class-F-Fire Class F
Kitchen Fires involving cooking oil

*A key point to note is that SCDF is educating the public on NOT to directly using fire extinguishers on class E fires. E fires will reignite almost immediately as heat is still being generated. This is why the first step of eliminating a Class E fire is to turn off the source by shutting off the electrical supply. If there is still a fire, the fire is likely to be a class A or B fire which will be much easier to put out as compared to a E fire. This is also why class E logos are no longer permitted on new fire extinguishers.


How to use a fire extinguisher?

Before you use a fire extinguisher, always ensure you have an escape route. If you have to use a fire extinguisher, do so at a safe distance. When in doubt, always choose to run. Even professional fire fighters in full fire resistant suits have been trained to never put their own lives at risk.

Always remember PASS. You can also read the instruction label on the fire extinguisher.

How to use a fire extinguisher for car fires?

If the intended use is for car fires, take extra caution as car fires are very hard to handle even for SCDF. Car fires happen because of poor electrical wiring. As a result, when you accelerate, a great amount of heat and smoke is generated. The horrible smell of smoke is the first cue that a car fire is about to happen.

1. When you smell smoke, immediately turn on your hazard lights and safely stop by the side of the road.
2. Turn off the vehicle and grab your fire extinguisher.
3. Open up the bonnet and raise it up very slowly. Raising up the bonnet too quickly may instead give the fire more oxygen to grow bigger.
4. If a fire or smoke has appeared, immediately fully discharge the fire extinguisher without hesitation.
In the event if the fire extinguisher did not put out the fire, no matter how small it looks, call SCDF immediately. The fire can and will grow big quickly.


How do I maintain a fire extinguisher?

For personal use fire extinguishers, owners can check the fire extinguisher’s pressure gauge. When the needle is pointed to the green zone, it allows the owner to know that the fire extinguisher is generally in good working condition.


Does this fire extinguisher expire?

Fire extinguishers do not expire like food. Every 5 years, fire extinguishers are to undergo a full pressure test. In theory, if the fire extinguisher were to undergo a full pressure test every 5 years and assuming it has been kept in a reasonably clean environment, it can last indefinitely. However, this is rare in reality as it is simply more economical to purchase a new piece every 5 years.

A one year expiry sticker is affixed to every foam fire extinguisher that we sell. When the date has lapsed, it does not mean that the fire extinguisher has to be disposed. Instead, simply bring it to us to service the fire extinguisher and the expiry date can be extended. This rule does not affect fire extinguisher that are for personal use. For personal use fire extinguishers, owners can check the fire extinguisher’s pressure gauge. When the needle is pointed to the green zone, it allows the owner to know that the fire extinguisher is generally in good working condition.
