Fit-for-purpose fire extinguisher installation

As fire extinguisher suppliers, we regularly perform fire extinguisher installation requiring verification that location and signage meet Australian Standards, and the type of fire extinguisher is matched to potential fire application.

It can be ineffective and therefore potentially dangerous to use the wrong the type of fire extinguisher on a fire.  The Australian Standards (AS2444) outlines the types of fire extinguishers that can be used on different classes of fire. Our ‘Quick Guide’ below shows the best types of fire extinguishers to use according to AS2444. For a complete FPA guide, download the broader details here.
