CO2 fire extinguishers with Kitemark and BAFE accreditation. All our extinguishers come fully charged and are supplied with a wall bracket. Important: Our CO2 extinguishers are equipped with double-walled frost-free horns, which prevent freeze-burns.
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) extinguishers are suitable for class B fires, involving flammable liquids such as oils, petrol and solvents. They are also ideal for electrical hazards, as CO2 does not damage electrical equipment and is therefore ideal for modern offices and electronic risks.
Do not use CO2 extinguishers on deep fat fryer fires! Deep fat fryers have their own class (F) because the burning fat is so hot that conventional class B extinguishers cannot cool them down to below the auto-ignition temperature.

CO2 extinguishers are used on liquid fuel fires such as petrol and liquifying plastics and increasingly for electronic and electric equipment such as computers and fuse boards. CO2 extinguishers leave no residue and cause only minimum harm of electronic equipment.
On these units CO2 is expelled with great force which is the reason why CO2 extinguishers cannot be used on pan fires, though, as the jet would carry the burning oil out of the fat pan or deep fat fryer! Make sure you buy CO2 extinguishers with frost free horns, as the expanding CO2 gas might damage your skin as you are holding the horn or hose.
Our CO2 extinguishers all feature frost free horns which shield your hand from the freezing cold of the expanding CO2 gas. If you hold on to the horn of a CO2 extinguisher without frost free horn, your skin can get damaged by the freezing cold of the horn.
When looking for CO2 extinguishers the horn is often overlooked. Bear in mind how much it would cost should you have replace a standard non-frost free horn.
