Kitchen Fire Extinguishers
In kitchens, multiple cooking appliances such as ovens, toasters etc represent a number of ignition sources. Coupled with the use of cooking oils and fats (class F), the kitchen is classed as a high fire risk area.
Users have a choice over the type of extinguisher to be installed within a kitchen environment.
Dry water mist fire extinguisher can be used on fires involving solid combustibles, flammable liquids, burning fats and oils as well as electrical equipment. The dry water mist extinguisher leaves very little residue allowing for an easy clean up after discharge.
Wet chemical fire extinguishers are usually found in kitchens where cooking media is used on a large scale. Its class F fire rating enables the extinguisher to effectively tackle large chip pan fires, forming a layer that smothers the burning fuel and helps to prevent re-ignition.
Fire blankets help to form a barrier and cut off the oxygen supply to the burning media. Fire blankets are used on chip pans, saucepans and deep fat fryer fires as well as clothing fires.
Filled with de-ionised water, dry water mist fire extinguishers feature a specially designed nozzle that allows for the extinguisher to be used on classes A, B, C, F and even electrical equipment fires. Ideal for use in kitchens, caravans and boats, the 1ltr+ dry water mist extinguisher is compact in size but creates an effective cooling blanket and helps to reduce the oxygen content. When used, the water is discharged as a fine mist, leaving no residue and as tiny droplets are created this means that electricity can not travel though them.

The 3ltr dry water mist fire extinguisher is suitable for tackling common fires including class A (solid materials), class B (flammable liquids) and class C (flammable gases). Due to its uniquely designed nozzle, the de-ionised water discharges as a fine curtain mist, producing billions of tiny water droplets. This method allows the extinguisher to be safely used on or near electrical equipment as well as class F cooking oil fires, as the droplets have no adverse reaction with burning liquid.

The 6ltr wet chemical fire extinguisher is ideal for use in industrial kitchens where chip pans are used. When discharged, wet chemical forms a cooling blanket on top of the fire and prevents re-ignition. Its class F fire rating means that the extinguisher is suitable for use on cooking oil fires.
