Seranco Home | Portable Fire Extinguishers

Portable Extinguishers - Commercial Fire Safety EquipmentWhen used by trained personnel, 80% of fires are successfully put out using fire extinguishers. Keeping fire extinguishers in good working order is therefore both vital and in fact is also a legal requirement.

The team at Seranco is equipped and qualified to carry out the annual service maintenance of portable fire extinguishers in accordance with BS 5306. Seranco supplies a wide range of portable fire extinguishers, all of which are Kite marked, EN 3 Approved and CE certified.

There is a seemingly bewildering choice of different types of fire extinguisher. To help, here is Seranco's brief guide to the various types of fire:

Types of fire

  • Class A – Paper, textile , wood
  • Class B – Flammable liquids
  • Class C – Bottled and manufactured gases
  • Class F – Cooking oils and fats.
Fire Type
Water Suitable for hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, warehouses and offices. Most commonly, 9 litre capacity, water extinguishers still offer excellent fire suppression for all Class A fires. Class A
CO2 Suitable for offices, workshops and live electrical equipment. Harmless to machinery. Class B
AFFF (foam) Suitable for garages, workshops and offices. Highly effective against petrol and volatile liquids, forming a flame-smothering seal which prevents re-ignition. Class A B
Dry Powder Suitable for workshops and garages, vehicles and live electrical equipment. Class A B C
Wet Chemical Suitable for kitchens with deep fat fryers. Works by cooling the burning oil and sealing the surface. Class A F
