Sometimes, a regular sized fire extinguisher isn’t quite big enough. Within certain industries, bigger equipment is required. Fire Safety Store supplies such apparatus and can provide extinguishers containing as much as 150 litres.
At such huge volumes, you would expect these bigger extinguishers to carry logistical problems. You would of course, be right. They are heavier and not everybody possesses Herculean strength to run and grab one when they are needed. Providing a workaround for such an issue is easy for us here at Fire Safety Store – we provide a wheeling mechanism for easy transportation and deployment.
Wheeled fire extinguishers are intended for big scale industrial and commercial sites. They are also often found in the marine industry for obvious reasons.
We can offer portable fire extinguishers in three different types – AFFF foam, ABC dry powder and carbon dioxide extinguishers. As with normal sized extinguishers, it is important to ascertain which type you need before getting, or even worse using, the wrong one.
AFFF foam extinguishers are suitable for solid, combustible materials based fires as well as fires containing flammable liquids. They should never be used on live electrical equipment or flammable metal fires.
Carbon dioxide extinguishers are best used on flammable liquids and live electrical equipment. They are not suitable to fight fires containing solid materials or flammable metal fires.
Depending on the type of wheeled fire extinguisher you are looking for we can offer a Non-Marine approved unit with a 12 month manufacturer’s guarantee and a Fully Marine Approved unit with a five year manufacturer’s guarantee.
All of our portable wheeled fire extinguishers make use of a stored pressure type unit to provide both safety and rapidness when called upon.
