Water Extinguishers

Water fire extinguishers are suitable for class A fires caused by the combustion of solid materials, mainly of organic origin, such as: wood, paper, straw, textiles and coal.

How Does A Water Extinguisher Work? 

These types of extinguishers are very simple. Naturally water has a great cooling effect, so when sprayed on class A fires it reduces the temperature of the fire so that it cannot burn. An advantage of this type of extinguisher is that it can put out Class A fires quickly and does not have an environmental impact. There are a range of places that can benefit from having water extinguishers, such as storage units, warehouses, paper factories, and similar properties.

When using a water extinguisher, follow the steps below:

  • First remove the safety pin which will also break the anti-tamper seal
  • Point the extinguisher nozzle at the base of the fire and squeeze the handle
  • Continue to spray until the fire is completely extinguished
