Water Extinguishers

Water fire extinguishers are available in 3ltr, 6ltr and 9ltr options and are suitable for ‘Class A’ materials.

These extinguishers can be used to put out fires that rely on carbon based materials as their source of fuel. This includes paper, wood and textiles.

These extinguishers are not suitable to put out fires that involve flammable liquids, fat (cooking oils etc), flammable gas and electricity.

Given that most buildings contain significant amounts of ‘Class A’ materials these extinguishers should form the basis of your portable fire extinguisher system.  This type of extinguisher is likely to be found throughout all buildings, including offices, fire escape routes, store rooms etc.

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 water fire extinguishers undergo a basic service with intervals no longer than 12 months and an extended service every five years.
