Top ^ Extinguishers
Water fire extinguishers
Ideal for fires involving wood, paper, fabrics and other similar types of free-burning materials.
This high quality extinguisher is British Standard approved and gives an impressive fire-fighting performance.
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) fire extinguishers
Suitable for use for use on flammable liquids and electrical fires, both models contain a non-toxic, clean gas.
When used they leave little residue and so are ideal for offices and workshops because damage to equipment is kept to a mimimum.
Powder fire extinguishers
Powder fire extinguishers are extremely versatile; suitable for use on free-burning materials, flammable liquids and flammable gases.
Due to the non-conductivity of dry powder they are also ideal for electrical fires.
The various sizes of powder fire extinguishers are shown below.
