If you’re confronted with a fire, you need to be confident that your extinguisher is manufactured to the highest level of quality. The FireSafe range of Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers has been manufactured under an accredited ISO 9001 Quality Management System and are approved to AZ/NZS 1841. Charged with ABE type powder, they are the most suitable and effective extinguisher type for use on fires involving paper, textiles and most plastics as well as flammable and combustible liquids. The powder stream is non-conductive so is also safe to use in areas where live electrical current may be present. 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 WHITE Band and Post 1998 - Red with upper level WHITE Band.

Advantages: High performance extinguishers suitable and effective on most fire risks - refer to the Suitability Guide below. Available in a wide range of sizes with either a wall type or a bracket suitable for installation on mobile plant and equipment.

Disadvantages: Dry Powder consists of very fine particles making clean up after discharge difficult. Discharge may cause damage to electrical components - consider a FireSafe CO2 extinguisher as an alternative. Discharge in confined space may obstruct vision.

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.
