Fire Extinguisher Coverage

The coverage of each size fire extinguisher varies, and each size has a practical application for different types of fires. The 1kg and 1.5kg sizes are suitable for small fires, such as those in a car or small office space. The 2.5kg size is suitable for slightly larger fires, such as those in a workshop or garage. The 4.5kg and 9kg sizes are suitable for larger fires, such as those in a warehouse or manufacturing facility.

It is important to note that while dry powder fire extinguishers are effective on a wide range of fires, they can leave a residue that can damage sensitive electronic equipment. As such, they may not be suitable for use in areas with a lot of electronic equipment.

Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

To keep your dry powder fire extinguisher in good working order, it is important to have it serviced and maintained regularly. This should be done at least once a year, or more frequently if the extinguisher has been used or damaged. During a service, a qualified technician will inspect the extinguisher, check the pressure, and replace any damaged or worn parts.

There are some best practices that can help ensure your dry powder extinguisher is ready to use in the event of a fire.
These include:

  • Storing the extinguisher in a visible and accessible location.
  • Ensuring that the pressure gauge is in the green zone.
  • Making sure that the tamper seal is intact.
  • Train employees on how to use the extinguisher.
  • Conduct regular fire drills to ensure everyone knows what to do in the event of a fire.

In conclusion, standard dry powder extinguishers are a versatile and effective tool for fighting fires of different sizes. It is important to choose the appropriate size for the application and to have the extinguisher serviced and maintained regularly. Best practices such as proper storage, regular inspections, and employee training can also help ensure the extinguisher is effective when needed.
