Types of Fire Extinguishers and Hazard Chart
Please use our Hazard Chart to determine which type or types of fire extinguishers are suitable for your needs. The chart details each type of fire extinguisher and it’s intended purpose. A tick indicates that this type of extinguisher is suitable for hazard listed, a cross indicates this fire extinguisher type cannot be used for the hazard listed. You may require a combination of fire extinguishers depending on the types of hazard that may arise. Ideally you will have completed a full hazard assessment to determine any hazard possibilities, however if you aren’t certain then feel free to contact one of our experts.
