The 5 types of fire extinguishers

The 5 different types of fire extinguishers that are ideal for your business in case of a fire emergency include:

 1. Water Extinguishers

When a fire is caused by the combustion of solid materials, mainly of organic origins such as wood, paper, straw, coal or textiles, then a water fire extinguisher is your best bet in fighting these types of fires. These types of fires belong to class A fires.

2. Foam Extinguishers

Ideal for both class A and B fire risks, foam extinguishers are ideal for fires resulting from the combustion of materials that liquify such as oils, fats, paints, petrol or tar.

 3. CO2 (Carbon dioxide) Extinguishers

For all class B risks, carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are the best for the job. CO2 is ideal for modern offices as it is harmless to electrical equipment and the number one choice for any risks involving flammable liquids or electrical hazards. CO2 is at your rescue for any fires resulting from the combustion of liquids such as oils, solvents or fats.

4. Powder Extinguishers

We highly recommend dry powder fire extinguishers for mixed fire environments because they cover type A, B and type C fires. They are best for putting out flammable liquids and fires involving flammable gases such as methane, propane, hydrogen and natural gas.

5. Wet Chemical Extinguishers

To begin with, wet chemical extinguishers are a brand new innovation within the fire industry. Furthermore, they are the most ideal for the workplace. Cooking appliances are one of the biggest sources of accidental fires in the workplace, therefore, the wet chemical solution provides the most effective means of extinguishing fires that involve deep fat fryers. The extinguisher will cool and emulsify whenever application is on burning fats and oils. It is a superb preventative solution and has a class A fire rating.
