Extinguisher Fire Rating

The ‘Fire Rating’ of an extinguisher is the measure of the size of fire it can tackle.

For instance, a 9lt Foam Extinguisher which we supply has a 21A, 183B fire rating.  This means that it can be used to tackle a fire of up to 21kg of flammable solids, or 183lt of flammable liquids.

These ratings are set by independent laboratories, using a consistent testing procedure.  The fire fighting is done by a professional fire fighter.  It’s important to remember this, as when the extinguisher is in the hands of a professional it is capable of much greater performance than may be achieved by someone who only has minimal training.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

    It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
