So, what type of extinguishers do you need? This may help…

Water Fire Extinguishers

Water Fire Extinguishers are suitable for class A fires, involving solid materials such as: wood, paper, straw, textiles, coal etc. The water cools the fire and penetrates quickly into upholstery and bedding.

Foam Fire Extinguishers

Foam fire extinguishers are ideal for class B fires, caused by the combustion of liquids and materials that liquify such as petrol, oils, fats, paints, tar etc. Foam extinguishers are NOT suitable for deep fat fryer fires. For these type of fires use Wet Chemical extinguishers.

Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers

Dry Powder extinguishers are suitable for the majority of fires (Class A, B and C).

CO2 Extinguishers

CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) Extinguishers are suitable for class B risks, involving flammable liquids and for electrical hazards. CO2 is harmless to electrical equipment and is ideal for modern offices, electronic risks and fires caused by the combustion of liquids such as: oils, solvents etc. Do not use on deep fat fryer fires!

Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Wet Chemical extinguishers are ideal for tackling deep fat fryer and cooking oil fires (Class F). In addition they tackle general household fires (Class A).
