Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers - Key Points:

- Red Body (Can also be provided in Chrome finish)

- Are best for Class B fires (Suitable for flammable liquids)

- Are safe to use on electrical fires

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers contain pure carbon dioxide. It’s most suited for use on Class B fires (fires involving flammable liquids such as paint, petrol or oil) but it’s also safe to use on electrical fires. The carbon dioxide (CO2) works to smother the fire by depriving it of oxygen.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers are not recommended in fighting fires cooking oils, for example, as there is a danger that the cooking oil could be blasted/exploded over a wider area, caused by the pressure released with the CO2 on discharge. 

CO2 extinguishers can be used in many environments, and can be particularly useful around electrical equipment because they don’t leave a residue that could damage the equipment such as in office spaces, server rooms and medical environments.

Careful consideration needs to be given to use in confined spaces due to the risk of asphyxiation.
