Type of Fire Extinguishers & Their Applications

It is important to ensure that you understand the different types of fire extinguishers and which type of fire they can be used to tackle.

Water Extinguishers (Class A)

  • Ideal for fires involving combustibles such as wood or paper. They are designed to cool down the fire by reducing its heat.

CO2 Extinguishers (Class B & C)

  • Most effective against flammable liquids (Class B) and electrical fires (Class C). They are designed to displace the oxygen, essentially smothering the fire.

Dry Chemical Extinguishers (Class A, B & C)

  • These are the most versatile and widely used fire extinguishers. They interrupt the chemical reactions of a fire, making it suitable for a wider range of fire types.

Foam Extinguishers (Class A & B)

  • The foam creates a barrier to suppress vapours and prevent the fire getting oxygen. They are therefore suitable for solids (Class B) or flammable liquid based (Class A) fires.
