5kg CO2 Extinguisher Use in Vehicles
While 5kg CO2 fire extinguishers are not usually fitted in vehicles they can be very useful in specific, specialised vehicles such as an outside broadcasting vehicle, for electrical contractors or any other type of vehicle that contains a number of electrical components. The 5kg CO2 fire extinguisher is perfectly suited to these cases.
It has a limited usefulness on small flammable liquid fires, and cooking oil fires. CO2 Fire Extinguishers leave no residue.
Carbon Dioxide – CO2 Fire Extinguishers provide a very effective solution for fighting fires. They contain a well known cleaning agent that doesn’t leave a residue on the treated area. CO2 Fire Extinguishers are ideal for fighting fires in areas containing any type of computer and electrical equipment as they don’t cause any harm to electrical goods. Co2 Fire Extinguishers are particularly effective on small burning liquid fires.
