What type of fire extinguishers do I need?

Fire extinguishers come in a variety of different types and sizes. The choice of which extinguishers to use in a workplace can be confusing and lead to the wrong extinguishers being used. We have put a brief general guide below describing the most common types and what they can be used for. When selecting fire extinguishers there are multiple factors which need to be considered. If you would like any help or advice simply fill out the form at the bottom of the page. 

Water Fire Extinguishers - Class A

Water fire extinguishers are filled with plain water and are suitable for use on Class A (flammable solids) fires. These type of fires involve materials like paper, card, wood and textiles. Water extinguishers work by cooling the fire and removing heat and are a common choice for workplaces. Benefits of water extinguishers are that they are environmentally friendly and easy to clean up when used. The disadvantages are that they may freeze if left outside in cold temperatures and should not normally be specified for use on fires involving electricity.

Foam Fire Extinguishers Class A & B

Foam extinguishers are filled with water and a foam concentrate that produces a foam spray when discharged. Unlike water foam extinguishers can also be used on Class B (flammable liquid) fires involving liquids such as petrol, spirits, solvents and paint. Similar to water units, foam may also freeze in low temperatures and should not normally be used on fires involving electricity. The foam concentrate can also be environmentally damaging which is something to consider when choosing between foam and water extinguishing mediums. Foam extinguishers that we supply are EcoFoam models which use an environmentally friendly foam concentrate with a reduced environmental impact.

Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers - Class B / Electricity

CO2 fire extinguishers are also suitable for use on Class B fires but in many workplaces are provided for use on fires involving electricity. These fires may involce items such as electrical appliances, distribution boards and switchgear. CO2 extinguishers work by displacing the oxygen around the fire. This has a smothering effect which then extinguishes the fire. As the CO2 leaves the extinguisher it has a cooling effect and can make the discharge horn extremely cold. All CO2 extinguishers that we supply come with a frost free, double insulated discharge horn to prevent injury.

ABC Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers - Class A,B,C & Electricity

Powder fire extinguishers are multipurpose and can be used on Class A, Class B, Class C (flammable gases) and fires involving electricity. One major disadvantage of powder extinguishers is that they are messy and an extensive amount of time would be required to clean up after using one. Powder fire extinguishers can create a big dust cloud which reduces vision and can also irritate the lungs. For this reason they should not be specified for indoor use unless specified in a risk assessment. One benefit of powder extinguishers is that the contents will not freeze outdoors in very low temperatures unlike water and foam. For this reason they are often ideal for use on construction sites or petrol station forecourts.

Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers - Class A & F

Wet Chemical fire extinguishers are normally intended for use on Class F (cooking oil fires) although they can also be used on Class A fires. Wet chemical extinguishers are normally found in commercial kitchens which use deep fat fryers. When sprayed onto a cooking oil fire the wet chemical reacts with the cooking oil. It undergoes a process called saponification and changes to a soap type substance which will no longer burn.
