Compressed Air Foam sYstems

Compressed Air Foam Systems (CAFs) are used in firefighting to deliver fire retardant foam for the purpose of extinguishing a fire or protecting unburned areas. CAFs are standard water pumping systems where compressed air can be added to a foam solution to generate foam. The air compressor also provides energy, which, gallon for gallon, propels compressed air foam farther than aspirated or standard water nozzles.  It is proven that CAFS attacks all three sides of the fire triangle simultaneously. The foam blankets the fuel, thereby reducing the fuel’s capacity to seek out a source of oxygen. The CAFS solution adheres to ceilings and walls, more readily aiding in rapid reduction in heat. 

S3 DVBE has several key relationships with industry leading CAFs manufactures and sells all the products on the Western Fire Supply E-commerce site.
