A camper or caravan usually needs more than just a fire extinguisher. That's why we'll look further than just fire extinguishers and give you a global overview of general fire protection on campers and caravans.
For many of us, a caravan or a camper is our home away from home during the summer months. Just like at home, it might be a good idea to provide your caravan with sufficient fire prevention equipment. After all, caravans and campers have relatively the same fire risk as ordinary homes, according to statistics.
Fire protection starts with, in the first place, prevention. Therefore we recommend the following products:
- 1 powder fire extinguisher 3kg for camper: powder extinguishers can extinguish fires of solids, liquids and gases without any problems. That's why they are ideally suited for use in motor homes: any gas heating, electrical appliances, but also other flammable liquids, can be extinguished quickly and efficiently. The 3 kilogram capacity is enough to extinguish small to medium fires, but is still easy to store away because of its size. Alternatively, you could also opt for an ABF frost-free foam fire extinguisher of 2l, which causes less collateral damage and is also suitable for frying fat fires, but you won't be able to extinguish gas fires.
- 1 First Alert heat detector: if the temperatures rises too quickly, this First Alert heat detector will warn you immediately so you're immediately aware of dangerous situations, even when you're sleeping. The heat detector gives out a loud signal and will not give false alarms in normal situations. Replacing the battery every year will ensure permanent safety.
- 1 assembly kit Elro: this handy assembly kit allows you to attach the First Alert heat detector to the ceiling of your caravan without screws or a drill bit.
- 1 first aid kit: Immediate action is required in case of burns. If there are any minor injuries, this first aid kit can solve the first problems.
