Compare fire extinguisher costs

Are you concerned about the safety of you and your loved ones in the event of a fire? Want to reduce the risk of a devastating office fire by installing fire extinguishers? Fire Extinguishers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, designed to combat the specific types of fires common in homes and offices. Want a fire extinguisher but not sure how to go about it? We'll help you find the best deals.

What are Fire Extinguishers?

Fire extinguishers typically refer to hand-held active fire protection devices used to put out or control small fires in an emergency situation. These devices are not intended for large or out-of-control blazes. Hand-held fire extinguishers consist of a pressurized cylinder containing a fire-retardant agent. This chemical agent is discharged through a high pressure nozzle to douse flames. Fire extinguishers can be extremely dangerous if used improperly. Consult the professionals to learn how to handle an extinguisher safely.

Different Types of Fire Extinguishers

Fires are caused in a variety of ways. Typical home and office fires often start due to bad wiring, accidents on the stove, or malfunctioning electrical appliances. Chemical fires involving solvents can also occur. Choose fire extinguishers based on the type of fire you think your home or place of work is most susceptible to.

  • Dry Chemical – these types of extinguishers contain certain chemical compounds which can be used on type A, B and C fires which are solid combustibles, flammable liquids and electrical fires. The ABC multipurpose dry chemical extinguisher is a good choice for use in the home or office.
  • Foams – these fire extinguishers can be used effectively on A and B type fires, and may also be used for D fires (combustible metals) but are not recommended for electrical fires.
  • Wet Chemical – these extinguishers can be used for kitchen (K class) fires that involve oil and fat. Some have special nozzles to create a mist which can also be used in B and C fires.
  • Water – water-based extinguishers are not strongly recommended, as their applications are typically limited to A class fires.

Risk Assessment

All home owners and tenants are entitled to a risk assessment conducted by a fire specialist. This assessment will alert you to potential fire hazards. The fire specialist will also recommend the best type of extinguisher based on potential hazards in the environment. Always consult the professionals before installing fire extinguishers at home or in the office, as using the incorrect extinguisher on a fire can often be more dangerous than not using a fire extinguisher at all.

Fire Extinguisher Costs

Purchasing and installing fire extinguishers is not expensive and could end up saving the lives of your family and colleagues. Fire safety training is strongly recommended, and this may end up costing a bit more. Courses on how to prevent fires from occurring and how to react when fires do occur including the proper use of fire extinguishers are usually available through your local fire station.
