Description

CO2 extinguishers should only be used on small fires. After releasing the safety pin squeeze the handle to discharge the CO2. These extinguishers have a short discharge time, and can be loud. The horn should be aimed towards the base of the fire. If the extinguisher is being used on a liquid fire it’s important not to spread or splash the liquid with the stream of CO2. Everyone in a commercial premises should be trained in using an extinguisher in case of emergency. Aluminium CO2 Fire Extinguisher and Sign Kit – This convenient kit includes a polished aluminium CO2 Fire Extinguisher, complete with signage to indicate its use and position. It is important to know how using CO2 fire extinguishers differs from other kinds of fire extinguishers. Where are CO2 fire extinguisher used? Due to the specialised nature of CO2 fire extinguishers, there are a number of environments which should always have CO2 extinguishers on hand. Environments with a high number of electrical appliances, equipment, or wires should have access to CO2 extinguishers. Stores, hospitals, offices, and schools are all environments with electrical equipment and wires that could potentially start fires. CO2 fire extinguisher sizes vary and are usually available in 2kg and 5kg weights, it is best to consider where the extinguisher is to be used before deciding on the size needed for your location. A combination of foam and CO2 fire extinguishers is especially useful for these environments because together they cover the large majority of fires. Do I Need a CO2 Fire Extinguisher?This will depend on the types of fire hazards you have on your premises, but the answer is very likely to be yes. As already mentioned, CO2 fire extinguishers are an excellent electrical fire extinguisher, and almost all business premises will have some electrical items and therefore the potential for an electrical fire.

What Are the Best CO2 Fire Extinguishers for My Business?Depending on your circumstances, there are various different CO2 fire extinguishers that your business may need. Here are a few of our popular CO2 fire extinguishers and accessories: While CO2 fire extinguishers are used primarily as a fire extinguisher for electrical fires, they can also be used for fires caused by flammable liquids. Therefore, a CO2 extinguisher is a good fire extinguisher for petrol and diesel fires. For this reason, a CO2 fire extinguisher can be a useful fire extinguisher for petrol station settings or for other work premises where cars, vehicles and small petrol fuelled appliances are stored or worked on.

The most important thing to remember is that the horn on a CO2 fire extinguisher can get extremely cold when the extinguisher is discharged. This is due to the difference in pressure between the inside and the outside of the extinguisher – the internal energy of the CO2 decreases when the pressure is changed, causing a sudden drop in temperature. This can make the horn of the extinguisher cold enough to cause frost burn, although many horns have been designed to prevent this happening. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are generally used for putting out electrical fires and are often paired with Foam Extinguishers to create a full-service extinguisher location. The fires that CO2 extinguishers are used for most often involve electrical equipment such as generators or computers and are informally recognised as Class E fires. However, CO2 extinguishers are also used effectively for fires involving flammable liquids such as paint, diesel or petrol, otherwise known as Class B fires. British Standard 5306:3 requires the commissioning of extinguishers for businesses at your premises after delivery. We offer the option of commissioning only or with wall fixing. Our engineer will certify and label the extinguisher and issue a certificate for your insurance compliance. Due to safety concerns, they cannot be used in confined spaces or for high volume liquid flammables, specifically Class F fires, those involving grease and oils. For example, if a chip pan catches fire and a CO2 extinguisher was used in an attempt to control the flame, the force of the gas would blast the flames into the surrounding space. When used in a confined space, if the space is small enough, there is also the risk of asphyxiation. This is because the CO2 replaces the oxygen around the fire and can also replace the oxygen that the individual using the extinguisher needs to breathe. Our FireShield 2kg Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguisher has become widely recognised and trusted for its high quality performance and reliability. These extinguishers are the number one, go-to choice when it comes to the office as they can be used on Electrical Equipment such as PC's, Monitors or Electrical Cabling without damaging the equipment and leaving no residue behind. They are also ideal for hospitals, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, paint shops, fast food chains, clothing and fabric Industries, industrial units or where welding machines are present.

Will Staff Know How to Use a CO2 Fire Extinguisher?As discussed above, CO2 Fire Extinguishers are not hard to operate, but it is important to remember that operating any kind of fire extinguisher is not something that most people have to do often, and it is common for people to panic when a fire breaks out. Therefore, it is essential that staff are trained in the use of fire equipment at work, and we recommend that such training is ongoing so that staff are regularly reminded of the basics of using all fire safety equipment, and what to do in the event of a fire, in general. Appropriate signage can also be useful in reminding staff of the correct use of various types of fire safety equipment.
