TYPES OF FIRE EXTINGUISHER

These fire extinguishers, identified by their red markings, shoot a pressurised jet of water at a fire in order to extinguish the blaze and soak any flammable objects in the vicinity to prevent reignition. 

For use against organic materials such as:

  • Wood and Paper
  • Textiles
  • Plastics

DO NOT use on:

  • Flammable Liquids
  • Electrical Fires

All fires need oxygen in order to continue their reaction. Foam fire extinguishers work by smothering the fire and cutting it off from its source of oxygen. These can be identified by their beige markings, and can be used on:

  • Flammable Liquids
  • Wood and Paper
  • Textiles
  • Plastics

DO NOT use on:

  • Electrical Fires

Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers work on the same principle as their foam equivalents by cutting off supplies of oxygen to a fire. They do this by blasting a problem area with so much CO2 that no oxygen can reach the blaze and fuel the fire. These can be recognised by their black markings and are effective against:

  • Flammable Liquids
  • Electrical Fires

DO NOT use on: 

  • Fires within a confined space

Powder Fire Extinguishers are an all-rounder that can be employed in most situations. Again, they work by smothering the fuel of oxygen meaning that the fire can no longer burn. It should be noted that as they do not cool the fire, re-ignition is a risk. These can be identified by their blue markings and are useful against:

  • Wood, Paper, Textiles etc.
  • Flammable Liquids
  • Gaseous Fires
  • Live Electrical Equipment
