Powder Extinguishers

The powder fire extinguisher is suitable for use on fires involving Class A, B, C, D and electrical fires and are available in 2kg, 4kg, 6kg and 9kg options.

The powder fire extinguisher is a multipurpose extinguisher with variants that allow it to be effective on fires involving flammable metals. Powder fire extinguishers are not suitable for fires involving fat (cooking oils).

Maintenance procedures: The ‘Reform Order’ requires that all fire safety equipment be kept in a condition that is fit for purpose and thus requires that all fire safety equipment including fire extinguishers be maintained. It is required in accordance with BS 5306-3:2009 that powder fire extinguishers undergo a basic service with intervals no longer than 12 months and an extended service every five years.

The powder fire extinguisher is ideal for multi risk environments and is effective in developing a “fast knock down of a fire”.  Powder fire extinguishers are effective against “running fires” and this must be considered when designing a portable fire extinguisher system. The powder fire extinguisher is not suitable for confined spaces as the discharge of the medium can cause reduction of visibility and may impair breathing for this reason powder fire extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment.
