EXTINGUISHERS

Portable fire extinguishers form an important part of the fire protection provision of a building. They are especially valuable in the early stages of a fire, as they are portable and immediately available to assist in evacuation, the protection of a building and its contents. In recent surveys, more than 80% of fires are successfully extinguished using hand held portable extinguishers.Fire extinguishers have a vital role to play in the first aid response to fire.

WATER
For use on Class A fires – such as: wood, paper and fabric fires.

Water extinguishers are a popular choice for Class A fires by cooling, preventing re-ignition, providing low cost maintenance,

refilling and an environmentally friendly end of life disposal

FOAM
For use on Class A & B fires, such as: wood, paper, fabric, and flammable liquid fires

Foam extinguishers are an excellent choice for multi risk areas such as shops and offices with a high fire knockdown rate and safe inadvertent contact with live electrical equipment.

CO2

For use on Class B fires – such as: fires involving flammable liquid and electrical equipment. CO2 extinguishers having a non-conductive extinguishing media are the perfect choice for all live electrical equipment risks
POWDER
For use on Class A, B & C fires – such as: wood, paper, fabric, flammable liquids, gaseous fires and fires involving electrical equipment.

​Powder extinguishers are an excellent choice for multi risk, all weather external situations; However, powder discharge can cause a sudden reduction in visibility and impair breathing, thus they are not recommended for use indoors.

WET CHEMICAL

For use on Class A & F fires – such as: wood, paper, fabric, cooking oil and deep fat fryer fires.

Wet Chemical extinguishers when applied to hot oil cools the burning oil and chemically reacts to form a soap-like solution; sealing the surface and preventing re-ignition. They are the only choice for fires involving deep fat fryers.

SPECIALIST DRY POWDER
For use on Class D fires – such as: lithium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, titanium or aluminium.

Fires involving combustible metals in the form of swarf or powder can reach extreme temperatures. The L2 and M28 Powder Fire Extinguishers are equipped with a low velocity applicator to ensure the specialist powder is applied gently and effectively to the burning metal.

FIRE BLANKETS

A Fire Blanket is designed to extinguish small fires involving cooking oils (Class F), clothing fires and other small contained fires.

They are usually made of woven fibreglass or nylon with a silicone fire retardant coating, supplied in quick release containers, and should be wall mounted in a suitable location where they can be accessed easily in an emergency.

​They are single use and cannot be cleaned or repaired after use.
