Overview

CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) extinguishers are typically used on fires in live electrical equipment as they use a clean agent gas to extinguish fires without causing a mess, or contaminating sensitive electronics. The gas is non-conductive and is the recommended choice for any electrical fire and works by displacing the oxygen that a fire needs to sustain itself.

The CO2 extinguisher also comes with a Class B rating, which certifies its use on Flammable Liquid fires (petrol, diesel, solvents, etc.) but cannot be used on Class A risks (Solid Combustibles – paper, wood, cardboard, textiles, etc.), Class C risks (Flammable Gases – Propane, Butane, etc.) or Class F risks (cooking oils & fats). For this reason it is commonly paired with a AFF Foam units for Class A, or a Wet Chemical unit for Class F, to make up a Fire Point that addresses all local risks.

All of our CO2 units are manufactured in accordance with IS EN3 and the European Pressure Equipment Directive.
