A CO2 fire extinguisher is most commonly used for Class B flammable liquid fires, including petrol, and fires involving sensitive electrical equipment. CO2 fire extinguishers don't contain water or leave any residue, unlike a foam extinguisher, making them an ideal choice for environments with lots of electrical equipment like offices.
Here you will find our range of CO2 fire extinguishers. We supply them in various sizes and a choice of two finishes; all-red and chrome. All our fire extinguishers are fully guaranteed for added peace of mind and are ready for priority dispatch from our warehouse, so they can start protecting your premises from tomorrow.
Co2 fire extinguishers are colour coded with a black label and work by discharging gas under pressure replacing the air with carbon dioxide which doesn't support combustion.
Carbon dioxide is a gas and can asphyxiate so care should be taken when using, particularly in enclosed spaces where there is a danger that the Co2 may be inhaled.
This type of fire extinguisher doesn't work by cooling the fire so is not suitable for controlling Class A fires involving combustible solids like paper, cloth and wood. For these types of fire, you would need to use powder extinguishers or water extinguishers.
