Water fire extinguishers are a basic and economical type of fire extinguisher. They are not suitable for all types of fires, but if your company deals in flammable materials such as wood, paper and fabrics, this may be the most practical solution for most Birmingham businesses.
Suitable for the following Fire Classes:
- Class A: Ordinary combustibles: wood, paper, cloth, rubber and plastics
Island Fire Protection can help you assess your company’s risk and determine if H2O fire extinguishers are right for your premises.
With water fire extinguishers, water is dispersed in a fine mist. This is perfectly suited to prevent burning material from scattering and therefore spreading the fire. Mist, as opposed to a stream, can reduce the risk of electric shock.
H2O fire extinguishers are BSEN3 approved for Class A fires. Any fire extinguisher of this type from Island Fire Protection is filled with distilled water.
