Type of Fire Extinguishers and Classes of Fire
- Water extinguishers
- Foam extinguishers
- Dry powder extinguishers
- CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) extinguishers
- Wet chemical extinguishers
Water fire extinguisher
Water extinguishers are suitable for Class A type fires involving combustible materials such as wood, paper and fabrics. Water is a fast and efficient means of extinguishing these materials. It works by having a rapid cooling effect, so that insufficient heat remains to sustain burning and continuous ignition ceases.
Sizes Available: 9Litres
Foam fire extinguisher
Foam spray extinguishers (AFFF), are ideal for multi-risk situations where both Class A combustible materials and Class B flammable liquid risks are likely to be found. Foam spray extinguishers are especially suitable for Class B fires involving flammable liquids such as oils, spirits, greases, fats and certain plastics.
Sizes Available: 6,9 and 50 Liters
- Flammable liquids
- Soft furnishing
CO2 fire extinguisher
CO2 (carbon dioxide) extinguishers are for class B and C fires. They don’t work very well on class A fires because the material usually reignites. CO2 extinguishers have an advantage over dry chemical in that they leave behind no harmful residue. That makes carbon dioxide a good choice for an electrical fire involving a computer or other delicate instrument.
Sizes Available: 2 and 5Kgs
- Flammable liquids
Dry Powder fire extinguisher
Powder extinguishers are suitable for use on Class A, B and also Class C type fires involving flammable gases such as propane and butane. Powder is also highly effective for electrical hazards. This multi-purpose powder interferes with the combustion process and provides rapid-fire knock down.
Sizes Available: 1,2,6,9,12 and 50Kgs
- Flammable liquids
- Electrical hazards
Dry Powder fire extinguisher – Class D
Dry Powder Class D extinguishers are similar to dry chemical except that they extinguish the fire by separating the fuel from the oxygen element or by removing the heat element of the triangle of fire.
However, dry powder extinguishers are for Class D or combustible metal fires such as aluminium, magnesium, titanium etc. They are ineffective on all other classes of fires.
Size Available: 9Kgs
Suitable for Metal Fires
Wet Chemical fire extinguisher
Wet Chemical extinguishers are suitable for use on Class A & F Fires. These ranges of extinguishers are specialists in regards to cooking fires caused by fat and oils. Extinguishers such as Water, Foam, Powder & CO2 will not always put out big cooking fires and are also extremely dangerous because the pressure of these extinguishers can cause the oil to jet out and cause serious harm.
Sizes Available: 6Litres
- Cooking oil
A fire blanket is a safety device designed to extinguish small incipient (starting) fires. It consists of a sheet of fire retardant material which is placed over a fire in order to smother it Small fire blankets, such as for use in kitchens and around the home, are usually made of fiberglass and are folded into a quick-release contraption for ease of storage. Fire blankets, along with fire extinguishers, are fire safety items that can be useful in case of a fire. These nonflammable blankets are helpful in temperatures up to 900 degrees and are useful in smothering small fires by not allowing any oxygen to the fire. Due to its simplicity, a fire blanket may be more helpful for someone who is inexperienced with fire extinguishers.
Sizes Available: 1m x 1m and 1,2m x 1,5m
