OFB Fire designs highly effective OFB CAFS systems suitable for a range of fixed fire-fighting applications including;
OFB CAFS comes into its own where there is limited water supply, as it has its own water storage reservoir enabling, for example a 1,000-litre system to produce 30,000 litres or more of foam. Another key feature is that it enhances the capacity to extinguish a fire, where-as a sprinkler system that uses water is likely to merely contain or delay the escalation of the fire. Additionally, its non-toxic characteristics mean that post-fire clean-up is more manageable and limited by comparison and avoids post-fire toxic water causing property damage and adverse ecological and environmental damage.
Need a fire-fighting solution you can trust on your vessel? We believe OFB CAFS is the answer.
OFB CAFS are ideal for fixed vessel applications as they use very little water and can use fresh, salt or brackish water.
In 1999 a 150 litre OFB CAFS fixed system was installed on the Jamaican registered ship “The Baltimore Patriot”, where it protected it engine room during it’s service in the Bahamas. It’s CAFS fixed system was tested and the ship declared sea-worthy by Lloyds of London. The ship now operates as a North American Ferry.
