Office Fire Extinguishers
CO2 (carbon dioxide) fire extinguishers are designed to cover electrical equipment. Unlike liquid or powder extinguishers, CO2 fire extinguishers do not cause damage to electrical equipment and are therefore used on computers and servers. As CO2 is an asphyxiant it is unadvisable to use CO2 in confined areas, such as small server rooms.
Paper, furniture and textiles fall under the class A fire risk category of solid combustibles. Forming a cooling blanket when discharged, foam fire extinguishers are designed to tackle both class A (solid combustibles) and class B (flammable liquid) fires and helps to prevent re-ignition. Although foam extinguishers are suitable for use on class A and B fires, not all of them have the capability to tackle fires involving electrical equipment and are therefore paired with a CO2 (carbon dioxide) extinguisher.
To minimalise the amount of residue after discharge, some offices install water fire extinguishers as an alternative to foam. Suitable for use on class A fires, water extinguishers can tackle fires fuelled by wood, paper and textiles. Water extinguishers without additive have not passed the electrical conductivity test and are therefore paired with CO2 extinguishers.
