Correct Extinguisher Coding in Burwood
It’s important to recognise the different colour coding associated with fire extinguishers and make sure you have the proper unit or units on display in your property. If you are a business owner or a designated fire marshall then it is your responsibility to inform your colleagues of the differences between each extinguisher and the specific types of fires each should be used on. All extinguisher units are red, with some containing a coloured band denoting their contents:
- Solid red – Contains water. Suitable for Class A fires (paper, wood, cardboard) and should not be used on electrical fires.
- Black band – Contains carbon dioxide. Suitable for Class E electrical fires.
- Blue band – Contains foam. Suitable for Class A and B fires (paper, wood, cardboard, flammable and combustible liquids) and should not be used on electrical fires.
- White band – Contains dry chemical or powder. Suitable for Class A, B, C and E fires (most fires except for oils and fats).
- Orange band – Contains wet chemical. Suitable for Class F fires (cooking oils and fats, paper and wood) and not to be used on electrical fires.
- Yellow band – Contains vaporising liquid. Suitable for Class A and E fires (paper, wood, cardboard and electrical).
