Choosing a fire extinguisher for your Canberra business

When choosing a fire extinguisher in Canberra, you have to take the three factors that contribute to the triangle of fire into consideration. In short, they include:

  1. Oxygen; All self-sustaining fires require oxygen to keep them going. Our Canberra fire extinguishers remove the oxygen element, but tackle fuels in different ways.
  2. Fuel; Providing there’s a fuel to burn, your fire will continue. We provide five different types of fire extinguisher, each of which tackles different types of fuel.
  3. Heat; As you may have guessed, without heat a fire cannot continue burning. Removing heat from a fire is a chemical-based procedure. For example, a water-based extinguisher may make the heat of an electronic fire worse.

Bearing the above in mind, we will help you choose your fire extinguisher based on the risk factors present at your property or business. Removing any one element of the triangle will stop the fire, making your property safe if the worst happens.
