Do you want to purchase a fire extinguisher?
Here are a few essential things to note down before you make your purchase. There are 5 different types of fire extinguishers that can be used for your business in case of a fire emergency. These include:
1. Water Extinguishers
Specifically use a water fire extinguisher for any fire caused by the combustion of solid materials, mainly of organic origins such as wood, paper, straw, coal or textiles. These types of fires belong to class A fires.
2. Foam Extinguishers
Ideal for both class A and B fire risks. Use foam extinguishers for fires caused by 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. Use CO2 fire extinguishers for any fires caused by 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. Best suited for flammable liquids and fires involving flammable gases such as methane, propane, hydrogen and natural gas.
5. Wet Chemical Extinguishers
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 cools and emulsifies when it is applied to burning fats and oils. It is a superb preventative solution and has a class A fire rating.
