Our fire extinguishers are only available for delivery by our engineers. As a company we operate inline with current British standards and this means that all of the extinguishers we supply are commissioned on site by our qualified engineers. We strongly advise against purchasing pre commissioned equipment from internet based suppliers. We can carry out a survey to ensure you have the correct cover for your premises.

  • AFFF Foam Extinguishers

    AFFF Foam Extinguishers (7)

    AFFF Foam (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) is for Class A and B type fires. They usually have a spray type nozzle and are conductivity tested which means they are usually considered safe for use "around" electrical equipment. Care would have to be taken not to use these directly on live electrical equipment.
  • Co2 Extinguishers

    Co2 Extinguishers (3)

    Co2 Extinguishers are suitable for Class B flammable liquid fires and also safe for use on electrical equipment. The reason they are safe on electrics is Co2 is a gas and is not conductive like other extinguishers contents can be.
  • Powder Extinguishers

    Powder Extinguishers (3)

    ABC Powder is a very universal extinguisher with it being suitable for A, B and C class fires. Powder has the ability to quickly knock down flames but as it has no cooling effect, re ignition can occur. Powder is also very messy, can hinder visibility or breathing in buildings making it hard or impossible to escape. Care must be taken where powders are installed.
  • Water Extinguishers

    Water Extinguishers (3)

    Water Extinguishers are only suitable for class A fires, Water will extinguish a fire by cooling it and preventing re ignition. Some may be conductivity tested and they will be considered safe for use "around" electrics. But we do not advocate the use of water directly on electrical equipment, we will always advise a Co2 or powder for this.
  • Wet Chemical Extinguishers

    Wet Chemical Extinguishers (3)

    Wet Chemical extinguishers are generally used in kitchens where cooking oils are used. The reason for this is when dealing with hot oil a specialist extinguisher is more effective and safer as it puts the fire out in a different way, When using a wet chemical on hot oil a reaction occurs called saponification which turns the oil into a soap like substance. There are different sizes of wet chemical and the size you require will depend on the surface area of your fryers. Wet chemicals are also safe to use on class A fires.
