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.
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).
