Classification methods for fire extinguishers

 

There are a number of fire extinguisher classifications, which are internationally recognized. Depending on the type of fire a specific fire extinguisher class will be more suitable.  

In Europe there are six recognized fire classes, which also determine the classes of the fire extinguishers. Each fire class covers a different type of burning material, such as wood, paper, oils, etc.

The six fire classes are as follows:

·         Class A fires involve organic solids such as paper and wood.

·         Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids, including petrol, grease, and oil.

·         Class C fires involve flammable gases.

·         Class D fires involve combustible metals.

·         Class E fires involve electrical equipment/appliances.

·         Class F fires involve cooking fat and oil.

 

Depending on the fire class it extinguishes the color of the fire extinguisher varies. Mostly fire extinguishers are painted red, with a circle of a second color, containing information about the contents. This additional information can cover between 5 to10% of the entire surface of the body of the extinguisher.
