Powder extinguishers are able to deal with class A, B and C fires, as well as electrical fires, making them one of the most versatile fire extinguisher types. They tackle fires by smothering the flames with a dry powder and starving the fire of oxygen. Powder extinguishers can be easily identified by their blue-coloured band, and should be utilised in industrial environments such as vehicle workshops and manufacturing facilities where a number of different fire risks may be present. Dry powder fire extinguishers are generally not suitable for enclosed spaces such as office environments due to the reduction in visibility that can occur when this extinguisher type is discharged.
Here at Asco, we provide powder extinguishers to customers throughout Glasgow, Edinburgh and Midlothian, offering both an installation service and a unit siting service to ensure all of your extinguishers are positioned correctly.
