CO2 Fire Extinguishers Birmingham

CO2 Fire Extinguishers in Birmingham, also known as Carbon Dioxide fire extinguishers, are primarily used for Class B liquid fires and fires involving fragile electrical equipment. They are not advised for use in suppressing Class A fires involving solids since they do not function by cooling the fire. Inert Carbon Dioxide gas, which does not promote burning, is replaced with the air by CO2 Fire Extinguishers Birmingham when they discharge gas under pressure.

CO2 Fire Extinguisher Maintenance & Commissioning

Alongside providing CO2 fire extinguishers in Birmingham, we also commission and maintain them. If you’re not familiar with fire protection products and services, you’re probably wondering what a fire extinguisher commission means. Well, it is not possible to "commission" a fire extinguisher before it is shipped out since it can be damaged, discharged or may have lost pressure in transit. This is true when a customer buys a fire extinguisher from a website because it will likely be delivered by courier in a van.

Who Needs A CO2 Fire Extinguisher?

For buildings where there is a live electrical fire risk, such as offices, shops, schools, and hospitals, CO2 Fire Extinguishers in Birmingham should be standard equipment.

Offices with a lot of electrical office equipment are a good fit for CO2 fire extinguishers. For this type of interior environment, pairs of CO2 and foam extinguishers are frequently advised because they cover the vast majority of fire dangers that are likely to be present.

British Standard Fire Alarms

According to British Standard 5306-3, an expert should commission extinguishers on-site and that’s why when our engineers commission CO2 Fire Extinguishers in Birmingham. There are processes involved to guarantee that they work effectively that can only be done by a specialist:


  • Put the discharge nozzle in place (if not already attached)
  • Verify the integrity of the tamper device
  • Make that the pressure gauge is lit up green, if one is installed
  • Investigate the extinguisher for rust or damage
  • Add the extinguisher's weight to the maintenance label after weighing it.


When it comes to maintaining your fire extinguisher, we can provide a reliable and dedicated service that offers a 12-Monthly check, and our package includes commissioning, basic service, extended service, overhaul procedures, and recharge.
