TYPES OF EXTINGUISHERS
CO2 extinguishers are suitable for fires involving flammable liquids and electrical hazards. CO2 gas are an ideal choice for use on fires involving electrical equipment and machinery as they are non-corrosive, nonconductive and leave no residue. We supply our 2kg CO2 extinguishers with an insulated horn to prevent frost burn to the responsible person operating.
Foam spray extinguishers (AFFF – Aqueous Film Forming Foam) are suitable for both Class A and Class B. These extinguishers are especially suitable for Class B fires involving flammable liquids such as oils, spirits, grease, fats and certain plastics.
Water extinguishers are suitable for Class A type fires involving free burning combustible materials such as wood, paper and fabrics. Water is a fast and efficient means of extinguishing these materials by quenching and cooling the fire. Due to waters conductive nature, Water extinguishers should not be used around electrical equipment.
