Water fire extinguishers are the most affordable to buy and replace.
They’re a must-have in any London office. If a paper, wood or cloth breaks out, you can fight it using a water fire extinguisher; it’s much easier and cheaper to refill or replace a water extinguisher than a multi class one.
They work by cooling down the fire, which also removes the risk of re-ignition.
Suitable for class A fires
Class A: Ordinary combustibles – wood, paper, cloth, rubber and plastics
Try a water additive extinguisher
If you deal with a large number of normal combustibles, try a water additive fire extinguisher.
A chemical additive is added to the water, which lets you fight larger fires with smaller extinguishers. This makes them much lighter and easier to use.
