The Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers are also known as Co2 Fire Extinguishers and are suitable for tackling fires involving electrical items (computers, photocopiers etc) and Class B Fires (flammable liquids such as petrol, spirits and diesel etc).
In two sizes - 2kg and 5kg they are the only Fire Extinguishers recommended for electrical fires, making the Co2 Fire Extinguisher the most popular for offices, shops and industrial units. The Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguisher is the clear replacement for the banned Halon fire extinguisher.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are designed primarily for the use on electrical fires, although they can also be used on class A, B & C fires. Class B fires include flammable liquids such as oil, petrol, diesel, (excluding cooking oil), and some of the solid fuels like wax.
