What is this PAS about?

It covers requirements and test methods for a new type of lightweight fire-extinguishing unit which can be used by a single person to put out cooker fires involving chip pans and deep fat fryers. Quick application of such a hand-applied unit could help to prevent the escalation of a small fire into a more serious fire. It might also prevent the burns that can result from handling a kitchen pan which has been subjected to fire.

Who is this PAS for?

  • Manufacturers of this type of lightweight fire-extinguishing unit
  • Fire safety officers

Why should you use this PAS? 

The aim is to help this area of the fire prevention industry to grow with a series of established benchmarks promoting good practice for manufacturers and for the production of hand-applied units of a consistent and industry-accepted quality. 

The PAS specifies requirements and test methods for hand-applied units containing a non-toxic liquid medium used to extinguish and cool Class F fires in open-top cooking appliances (e.g. chip pans, deep fat fryers) that involve cooking media (vegetable or animal oils and fats) up to a volume of 3 L or up to a volume of 5 L.

It covers non-pressurized hand-applied units that are not reusable and that are intended for use by one person.It covers testing for electric shock, durability and inappropriate use.

Hand-applied units can be used as part of a wider fire prevention system. British Standards such as BS EN 1869, BS 7944 and the BS EN 3 series were used to inform the development of this PAS.

What’s changed since the last update?

This version incorporates Corrigendum No. 1 which makes changes to Clauses 6.1, E.5.8 and E.5.13. The figure 200⁰ C has been corrected to 300⁰ C as the piloted ignition temperature of oil is above 300⁰ C. It is the “fire point” and not the “flashpoint” from Kirk’s fire investigation (9) that should have originally been referenced.
