RED indicates a water fire extinguisher suitable for A-rated fires only.
Water extinguishers come in many forms. The standard water unit operates as a jet and is best suited for longer distance while water spray units offer a more controllable spray action but are restricted to close proximity. Some water extinguishers carry additives to assist the operation claiming to break down the water to allow better wetting while others are pure water. Water fire extinguishers work by cooling the fire, so removing the heat element from the fire triangle. We use pure water units as they are environmentally friendly containing only water and nitrogen. Our range includes both jet and spray and our most purchased is the 6ltr water spray extinguisher which is safe for accidental discharge on live electrics, a quite unique device as normally this claim is associated with water additive units.
