CO2 Fire Extinguishers
CO2 fire extinguishers should always be aimed at the base of the fire. They work by using carbon dioxide to displace a fire’s oxygen, which in turn extinguishes the flames. Unlike other extinguishers, CO2 fire extinguishers leave behind no residue. However, CO2 extinguishers should never be used in confined spaces, as this can cause suffocation. Always use the frost-free horn for protection.
Here at Asco, we are the leading CO2 fire extinguisher suppliers throughout Glasgow, Edinburgh and Midlothian, ensuring that you always have the correct extinguisher for any possible scenario. CO2 extinguishers are used to tackle class B and electrical fires, making them perfect for server rooms or any room with a lot of electrical equipment.
When carrying installation and maintenance of extinguishers, we always adhere to BS 5306-3 standards, and we always site units in line with BS 5306-8.
