Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers
The CO2 Fire Extinguisher is without a doubt an essential piece of fire safety equipment for the modern working environment. CO2 stands for Carbon Dioxide & it is the only fire extinguisher that is recommended for use on electrical equipment such as computers or other valuable machinery. CO2 can also be used effectively on Class B fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol or diesel, but should not be used on cooking fat fires.
CO2 Extinguishers are completely harmless to electrical equipment unlike Powder and leave no mess to clean up after a fire. With a 5 year guarantee as standard they are the perfect fire fighting essential to buy online in order to protect your staff and computers.
A CO2 Fire Extinguisher should not be used on any Class A Fires either such as those involving paper, wood or cloth because the carbon dioxide gas comes out at extremely high pressure and could cause the fire to spread as it blows the burning materials around.
Because of this it is recommended to pair a CO2 Fire Extinguisher with either a Water , Water Additive or Foam model in an office environment. For industrial areas a Powder Powder Extinguisher can be considered too.
