Class C Fires

Class C fires are ignited by flammable gases such as natural gas, propane and methane, these gases are frequently used within kitchens, workshops and garages.

It is typical for class C fires to occur due to gas leaks from stoves, cook tops, barbecues and gas-powered tools.

Fire Extinguishers

  • Powder fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A, B and C fires making them ideal for use in environments containing multiple fire risks. They are highly effective against petrol and volatile liquids which makes them ideal for vehicle protection.

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class B and electrical fires. CO2 fire extinguishers are primarily for use on fires of electrical origin. Being non-toxic and leaving no residue, CO2 will not harm machinery or electrical equipment.

  • Foam fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A solid combustible fires (wood, paper, textiles) and class B flammable liquid fires (petrol, diesel, paint, solvents).
