FirePower Polished Fire ExtinguishersThe FirePower range of Polished Fire Extinguishers offer a range of polished fire extinguishers that are available for water, foam and carbon dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers. Polished fire extinguishers may be considered more suitable for certain environments.

Non-red finish fire extinguishers are usually manufactured to the same standards as red coloured fire extinguishers, but only red fire extinguishers can be kitemarked and approved to BS EN3. Most non-red fire extinguishers, if supplied by reputable companies in the UK, will have been manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 Quality standards and will also be CE marked and tested to BS EN3. Whilst they don’t comply with the standard because they are not red, they will normally be completely legal.

FirePower Polished Foam Fire Extinguisher

Available in Water, Foam and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) versions. The key points and uses of each type of fire extinguisher are summarised below:

Water Polished Fire Extinguishers - Key Points:

- Chrome/Silver Finish Body 

- Suitable for use on Class A fires (paper, wood & textiles)

- Extinguishes fires by cooling 

- NOT suitable for fires involving flammable liquids, cooking fats, etc (explodes violently on contact)

- NOT safe to use on fires involving electricity (conducts electricity by jet/pooling)

Water Fire Extinguishers are suitable for Class A fires (paper, wood & textiles).  The water works to extinguish fires by cooling the fire. 

Foam Polished Fire Extinguishers - Key Points:

-  Chrome/Silver Finish Body 

- Suitable for Class A and Class B fires 

- Extinguishes fires by cooling and smothering

- NOT suitable for electrical fires unless specifically rated

Foam Fire Extinguishers are suitable for Class A fires (paper, wood & textiles) and Class B (flammable liquids).  The AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) foam works to extinguish fires by cooling and smothering the fire. 

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Polished Fire Extinguishers - Key Points:

- Chrome/Silver Finish 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.
