Our fire extinguishers are available in a range of sizes and capacities from a 1.0kg domestic/vehicle model through to the bigger 9.0kg units which are suitable for industrial & mining use. Powder or dry chemical extinguishers are effective in putting out or containing a large varierty of fires. They utilise a specially fluidised and siloconised mono ammonium phosphate. This chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 177°C and coating the surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Dry chemical fire extinguishers are the most appropriate choice for the home, office and workshop.

Do fire extinguishers have an expiry date?
As per an Australian Standard requirement, fire extinguishers have a manufacture date stamped into the body. There is actually no expiry date on the fire extinguisers. Portable fire extinguishers are typically serviced in accordance with AS1851, which requires a five yearly hydrostatic pressure testing (six-yearly if using AS 1851-1995). Tests should be carried out based on the date of manufacture rather than the date of the purchase or installation of the extinguisher. Extinguishers that are pressure tested are then marked and future pressure tests are carried out based on the date of the last hydrostatic pressure test. For some consumers, the cost of testing may be more expensive than simply purchasing a new extinguisher.
