Excellent all-round fire defence

The type of extinguisher our team supplies you with is directly related to the above information.

Powder fire extinguishers are ideal for use in diverse risk situations and offer excellent all-round fire defence. Powder fire extinguishers hold a class C rating and are the only operational solution for blazes involving flammable gases.

Foam fire extinguishers are perfect for use on solid combustible materials and are extremely effective on flammable liquid fires. Make sure you leave a layer of foam when extinguishing these fires to prevent the flame re-igniting.

Fire Extinguisher Options

CO2 fire extinguishers are appropriate for use on flammable liquid fires and are tremendously successful at eliminating fire that involves electrical apparatus. CO2 is also one of the cleanest extinguishers to use.

Water fire extinguishers are fit for dousing solid combustible materials such as wood, paper and textiles. It’s critical to remember that water conducts electricity and so you should avoid using it around electrical equipment unless an additive is being used.

Wet chemical fire extinguishers have an exclusive class F rating and typically come with a special application lance. The wet chemical extinguisher is usually found in kitchen environments, as it is the perfect solution for confronting large oil fires.

We also provide fire blankets, extinguisher stands and any signage required.
