WATER FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
 
 
 
The cheapest and most widely used fire extinguishers. Used for Class A fires. Not suitable for Class B (Liquid) fires, or where electricity is involved. For Prices see our PRICE LIST.
 
 
 
 
 FOAM FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
 
 
More expensive than water, but more versatile. Used for Classes A & B fires. Foam spray extinguishers are not recommended for fires involving electricity, but are safer than water if inadvertently sprayed onto live electrical apparatus.
For Prices see our PRICE LIST.
 
 
 
 
 
 POWDER FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
 
 
Often termed the ‘multi-purpose’ extinguisher, as it can be used on classes A, B & C fires. Best for running liquid fires (Class B). Will efficiently extinguish Class C gas fires, BUT BEWARE, IT CAN BE DANGEROUS TO EXTINGUISH A GAS FIRE WITHOUT FIRST ISOLATING THE GAS SUPPLY.  Special powders are available for class D metal fires. For Prices see our PRICE LIST.

Warning: when used indoors, powder can obscure vision or damage goods and machinery. It is also very messy.

 

 

CO2 FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

 

Carbon Dioxide is ideal for fires involving electrical apparatus, and will also extinguish class B liquid fires, but has NO POST FIRE SECURITY and the fire could re-ignite. For Prices see our PRICE LIST.

 

 

 

 

WET CHEMICAL FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

 

Specialist extinguisher for class F fires. For Prices see our PRICE LIST.
