What do the different classes of fire extinguishers mean?

Fire extinguishers are broken down into 6 different classes and the materials present in your building will determine what class you need.

Class B – Fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol

Class D – Fires involving flammable metals such as Lithium

Class E – Fires involving electrical equipment

Class F – Fires involving cooking oils

If you are unsure on what type of fire extinguisher you need, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we will arrange a time for us to visit your property and carry out an assessment for you.

In the event of a fire, you should only attempt to use a fire extinguisher providing it is safe to do so. At Coomber Security, we can provide your staff with fire extinguisher training so that they know how to handle and use an extinguisher.
