The foam produced from the system can be used to coat buildings, providing a protective barrier from radiant heat and ember attack due to bushfire as an example. CAFS is becoming more prevalent across Australia as agencies search for options to safeguard communities in the urban/bushland interface.

The tanker was built by SPEL in New Zealand on an Isuzu FTS 750 dual cab chassis.
