Operation

Operation One Seven Compressed air foam

The unique properties of One Seven extinguishing foam yield a staggering 90% utilisation of the water used, compared to only 5-25% for conventional fire-fighting methods using only water. The effectiveness of the foam ensures a fast knock-down of fires and greatly reduces the damage to property, as limited water consumption prevents excessive water damage and makes it easier to clean up.

These properties lead to greatly increased safety levels for fire fighters, which is one of the key aspects at each fire scene. The characteristics of One Seven include an extremely long throw and deep penetration into the area of the fire to reach the source of the fire, resulting in the following effects.
