Extinguishers are divided up in classes (A,B,C,D and F). These classes reflect which type of fire extinguisher to use.
The main types of extinguihers are:
Foam(Class A and B)
Carbon Dioxide(Class B)
Powder(Class A, B and C) - note powder extinguishers do leave a large residue when used and can damage equipment located nearby.
Wet Chemical(Class F)
Class A is fires involving wood,paper and textiles.
Class B is fires involving flammable liquids such as petrols,diesel or oils.
Class C is fires involving gasses.
Class D is fires involving metals.
Class F is fires involving cooking oils such as in deep-fat fryers.
Note that there is no Class E and no Class of fire for electrical fires. All fires involving electrical fires should be tackled with a Carbon Dioxide(CO2) fire extinguisher. CO2 extinguishers carry a Class B rating so it is suitable for fires involving flammable liquids. Please note that it is note safe to fight fires involving aerosols with fire extinguishers.
The location of fire extinguishers is very important. All extinguishers should be visable and have easy access. They should be located near to fire exits and entrances to buildings. The appropriate extinguisher should be located near the hazard and not directly on top of it so it can be safely used. All extinguishers should be place on dedicated stands or on wall mounted brackets(see our stand section) and have the correct signage above relating to the extinguishers provided.. It is advised that fire extinguishers should be hung no higher than waist level to the operating handle.
Since 1997 all extinguishers are red. This is to fall in line with European Standards(EN3). They all sill have a small colour- coded area at the top to denote the type. Each extinguisher should have clear instructions on the safe use. It is reccomended that staff should be trained in the used of extinguishers and general fire safety awareness and what to do in the event of a fire. At firecelluk we can carry out Fire Marshall training,just call our team for further advice.
