Portable and Automatic Fire Extinguishers
Almost all fires are small in their incipient stage and can be put out quickly if the proper firefighting equipment is available and the person discovering the fire has been properly trained. Most employers turn to portable fire extinguishers for fighting incipient stage fires.
Designed for fixed automatic protection. Suitable for Class A, B, C fire risks and electrical fires.
The 12kg automatic extinguisher will protect an area up to 20 cubic metres.
This Automatic Extinguisher can be used for the following applications: trucks, small boats, large boats, motor sports and engine/plant rooms.
Portable fire extinguishers are generally provided as "first attack" units in fire fighting and should be used only in early stages of fire before the fire grows to a stage that is beyond the capacity of the extinguisher. There are broadly six types of fire extinguisher; Water, Foam, Wet Chemical, Dry Chemical Powder, Vaporising Liquid and Carbon Dioxide. The selection of an extinguisher must be made with the class of fire in mind.
