If you’re confronted with a fire, you need to be confident that your extinguisher is of the highest quality. FireSafe CO2 Extinguishers are assembled in Australia under an accredited ISO 9001 Quality Management System and are approved to AS/NZS 1841.
Carbon Dioxide is clean gas which does not leave any harmful residue making it an ideal extinguisher for use where sensitive electronic equipment is present. CO2 is non corrosive and non conductive and is also suitable for small fires involving flammable and combustible liquids.
   With a wide range of sizes and equipment types available, there is a FireSafe Extinguisher to suit practically every fire risk in the home, car, caravan or boat to the largest commercial and industrial property.

Identification: Pre 1998 - Red with centre Black Band and Post 1998 - Red with upper level Black Band.

Advantages: Clean medium therefore minimal clean up after use. Ideal for use in environment where there are computers or other sensitive electrical equipment.

Disadvantages: Only limited effectiveness on Class A and Class B Fires - refer Suitability Guide below. Not very effective for use in out-door areas as wind will dissipate the Co2 very quickly.

Servicing: Inspection and maintenance is to be performed at regular six monthly intervals as required by Australian Standard AS 1851 by an authorised or Licenced Contractor.
