Our most versatile unit, the FireChief 2kg ABC powder fire extinguisher from Fire Depot contains ABC powder that is multi-purpose and fights any type of fire (except flammable metals). Some suppliers will cut costs by using BC powder that will not fight Class A (wood, paper, material) fires but the PowerX model is suitable for homes, vehicles, mobile engineers, plumbers and all sorts.
 
ABC powder extinguishers are suitable for fighting Class A fires, Class B fire (flammable liquids), Class C (flammable gases), and fires involving live electrical equipment. The 2kg powder fire extinguisher can be maintained and refilled by any qualified service company.
 
For Fire Regulations, you need to carry out a fire risk assessment for business or public access premises including rental property. That assessment should tell you what the fire risks are in fire classes such as Class A, B, C, and F (there is no Class E and D covers flammable metals). Although powder fights all fires, it is not designed for offices, hotels, nursing homes, surgeries, etc.

The updated British Standard 5306-8:2012 Selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers – Code of Practice states as follows.

"5.4.3 Use of powder extinguishers The discharge of a powder extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction of visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardize escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment."
 
Additionally, when looking to comply with Part 8 of the ADR regulations, ensure you meet the minimum dry powder fire extinguisher provision to suit the size of your vehicle.

If you are not sure what this means, please contact us any time or see our Fire Safety Survey service. Responsible extinguisher service technicians (including ours) may refuse to certify a powder extinguisher that is not suitable for the location.
