Fire Extinguishers a Must for All Businesses

One of the most important fire safety products is fire extinguishers but surprisingly many people don’t realise how important they really are. Fire training from RV Fire Systems is always a good idea to ensure complete knowledge and compliance.

A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device that should be installed in every business.  one of the most commonly used fire extinguishers is very clearly marked CO2. It is used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. Many people see extinguishers around but don’t realise just how important they can be. Fire extinguishers are not really intended for use on an out-of-control fire but they are for the small ones that can be easily dealt with by using them. In offices where there is electrical equipment you will most likely find a CO2 fire extinguisher because of its versatility. 

RV Fire Systems can help show you what each type of fire extinguisher is for and help you to see which ones are needed within your business premises. Typically fire extinguishers consist of a hand-held cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire.

Types of Different Fire Extinguishers

  • Water Fire Extinguishers: This is the most widely used extinguisher and is used on liquid fires or where electricity is involved.
  • Foam Fire Extinguishers: More expensive than the water extinguisher but is more versatile. Foam spray extinguishers are not recommended for electricity fires.
  • Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers: Often known as the ‘multi-purpose’ extinguisher. It is best for running liquid fires.
  • CO2 Fire Extinguishers are full of carbon dioxide gas under very high pressure which is designed to starve the fire of oxygen.

Here at RV Fire Systems we know that all of this can be difficult to take in. We understand that you just want to have the best fire extinguishers for your business and we are here to help you with that. Other fire alarm companies do not provide the fire safety peripherals that RV fire Systems do.
