A Quick Guide to Fire Extinguisher Colours and Their Uses
Fire extinguishers are a vital tool when it comes to protecting your staff, your premises and your assets against the risk of fire. You may know which fire extinguishers need to be used on which type of fire, but in an emergency would you be able to identify the right one by the colour of its label alone, without having to spend time reading it?
Many businesses have a wide range of fire hazards and consequently may have different extinguishers to hand. Being able to immediately lay your hands on the right one could save valuable time and increase the chances of fighting a fire successfully.
This month at Hoyles Fire & Safety, we’re taking a close look at fire extinguisher colours and uses to help people should they be faced with having to make a fast decision under pressure.
What are the fire extinguisher colours?
At Hoyles Fire & Safety, we provide, install and maintain all kinds of fire extinguishers to businesses and organisations in and around Leeds, Huddersfield and Bradford. Great care is taken to ensure that all our fire extinguishers’ labels clearly represent their correct usage, but we can help further by placing your extinguishers in the ideal location for the specific fire risks at your premises.
