Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Main Types Of Fire Extinguisher?

There are five main fire extinguisher types:

Carbon Dioxide: Suitable for Class B and fires involving electrical items.

Dry Powder: Suitable for Class A, B, C and electrical equipment

Wet Chemical: Suitable for Class A and F fires

How Often Should A Fire Extinguisher Be Checked?

Ensure your fire extinguisher is always ready when you need it by checking it regularly. In addition, monthly in-house checks should be conducted. We ensure that it is sited correctly, still has an anti-tamper device fitted and any gauge is reading correctly, is carried out and recorded.

All extinguishers require servicing by a professional company, e.g. OHEAP, once per year. Each extinguishing unit is tested in line with the current British Standards (5306) and certificated. Due to rigorous testing, extinguishers will be proven as compliant. With attention to BSI certification and third-party accreditation.

Finally, BAFE engineers are aware of all of the requirements necessary to meet compliance.

As per the above, different types of extinguishers cover varying fires. In addition, extinguishers are assigned letters that denote what the classification is. Such as:
