Extinguisher Selection

Fire extinguishers can be considered the “first line” of defense when personnel are confronted with an incident involving fire.

The locations and types of fires vary considerably. Wormald are able to provide protection for all types and classes of fires. Our personnel are also able to assist clients in selecting the correct fire extinguisher for their particular risk.

The common classes of fires, which these extinguishers are designed to combat, are:

  • Class A - carbonaceous solids, e.g. wood, paper and plastics
  • Class B - flammable and combustible liquids
  • Class C - flammable gases
  • Class (E) - fire involving energised electrical equipment
  • Class F - fire involving cooking oils and fats
