Common Types Of Fire Extinguishers:

Powder Extinguisher (Multi-Purpose)

Can be used on fires involving organic solids, liquids such as grease, fats, oil, paint, petrol, etc but not on chip or fat pan fires. Can also be used on gas fires.

Foam Extinguisher (AFFF)

Fires involving solids and burning liquids, such as paint and petrol but not suitable for chip or fat pan fires. Safe on fires caused by electricity if tested to 35kV (dielectric test) and a 1m safety distance is adhered to.

Carbon Dioxide Extinguisher

Live electrical equipment, although it allows re-ignition of hot plastics. Now mainly used on computer servers, although care has to be taken in small server rooms as CO2 gas is poisonous at 4% and can kill at just 8% concentration.

Wet Chemical Extinguisher

Wet chemical fire extinguishers are ideal for Class F fires, involving cooking oils and fats, such as lard, olive oil, sunflower oil, maize oil and butter.

Water (H2O)

Fires in paper, cloth, wood, rubber and plastics. It is part of our job, to let you know what your property requires in the way of an extinguisher type, and then provide those for you.

Below are just a few factors that should be taken into consideration when determining which type of extinguisher to install:

  • Type of fire to most likely occur
  • Size of fire to most likely occur
  • Hazards in the area where the fire is most likely to occur
  • Energised electrical equipment in the vicinity of the fire
  • Size of your establishment
