Fire extinguishers are designed to tackle specific types of fire. There are six different classes of fire and several different types of fire extinguishers.

Classes of fire

  • Class A – fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper or textiles.
  • Class B – fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel or oils.
  • Class C – fires involving gases.
  • Class D – fires involving metals.
  • Class E – fires involving live electrical apparatus. (Technically ‘Class E’ doesn’t exists however this is used for convenience here)
  • Class F – fires involving cooking oils such as in deep-fat fryers.

Types of fire extinguishers include water, foam, wet chemical, powder and CO2.



Your fire risk assessment will determine the fire risks within your building. Following this, and a full site survey, we select the correct extinguisher types and the right number of extinguishers needed to ensure fire risks are covered.

Fire extinguishers are versatile fire safety products that contain varying substances suited to different types of fire. The most common extinguishers include; water, CO2, foam, dry powder and wet chemical extinguishers. All of the extinguishers supplied by us meet British Standards – BS5306-3:2009 & BS5306-8:2012.


Fire extinguishers should be serviced to comply with BS 5306. Regular servicing ensures your equipment is always in prime condition.

We service your extinguishers at the following intervals:

– Annually by a competent ATFS engineer

– Water, foam and dry powder extinguishers should have a discharge test and extended service every 5 years from their date of manufacture

– Carbon dioxide extinguishers need an overhaul every 10 years from their date of manufacture

Customers should also undertake their own monthly checks and report any issues to us. This will prolong the life of the equipment, keeping you safe and saving you money.
