Fire Extinguishers

We offer a wide range of certified fire extinguishers suitable for various applications. The most common ones are Water, Carbon Dioxide, Dry Powder, Foam, Wet Chemical and Clean Agent. We stock several sizes of portables and mobile trolley units.

 

All our extinguishers are Kitemarked and certified to BS EN3 regulations together with CE marking. Our units are OEM – i.e. manufactured especially for Nimrod and have squeeze grip operation with special spray nozzles, durable non-kink hoses and high quality pressure gauges.

Water

The water fire extinguisher is still one of the most useful and cost-effective ways to put out class A fires involving solid materials such as wood, coal, textiles, cardboard, paper and fabrics. They discharge water at a high pressure to extinguish flames.

 

Water fire extinguishers have a cooling effect on the fire’s fuel, reducing the heat required to keep the fire burning. This causes the fuel to burn much slower until the flames are completely extinguished.

 

These extinguishers are required to be placed by the exit on floors that have been identified for Class A fire risk.

 

Water fire extinguishers are needed by schools, hospitals, supermarkets, hotels, public places, restaurants and fast-food chains, warehouses, residential properties and industrial units.

Key features:

  • Suitable for Class A fires

  • Quality deep-drawn cylinders

  • Pressure tested

  • Externally coated with polyester powder

  • Passed 480 hours of salt spray test

  • Internal polyethylene lining

Carbon Dioxide

The CO2 fire extinguisher is primarily used for electrical fire risks. Since it is non-toxic and leaves no residue, CO2 extinguishers will not harm electrical equipment. They also put out Class B fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel, paint and solvents.

 

CO2 fire extinguishers suffocate the fire by displacing the oxygen.

 

These extinguishers need to be placed near to the source of the fire risk or near the fire exits such as offices, workshops, kitchens, server rooms and premises with electrical appliances and equipment.

 

CO2 fire extinguishers are needed by schools, hospitals, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants and fast food chains, paint shops, clothing industries, offices and industrial units.

Key features:

  • Suitable for Class B fires and Electrical fires

  • Quality lightweight cylinders

  • High-quality valves and discharge hose assembly

  • Corrosion-resistant finish

  • Non-toxic (harmless to machinery) and leaves no residue

Foam

The AFFF (Foam) extinguisher provides a fast and powerful means of tackling Class B fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel and paint. Since it is water-based, it can also be used for Class A fires involving solid materials such as wood, coal, textiles, cardboard, paper and fabrics. This extinguisher creates a cooling effect on the fire-causing fuel. It extinguishes the fire by creating a barrier between the fuel and flame, thereby preventing re-ignition.

 

Foam extinguishers are ideal for multi-risk usage and safe to use in close proximity to electrical equipment. This type of extinguisher should be placed by the exits on floors that have been identified as a fire risk for class A or class B. Foam extinguishers are needed by schools, hospitals, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants and fast food chains, warehouses, residential properties and industrial units.

Key features:

  • Suitable for multi-risk use - Class A and B fires

  • Can be used on electrical equipment from a safe distance

  • Quality deep-drawn cylinders

  • Pressure tested

  • Externally coated with polyester powder

  • Passed 480 hours of salt spray test

  • Internal polyethylene lining

Dry Powder

The Dry Powder extinguisher (also known as ABC extinguisher) is suitable for use on Class A, B and C fires in offices, commercial premises and industrial sites. It is extremely effective with fast flame knock down on flammable liquids and gases. It can also be used for fires involving electrical equipment.

 

These extinguishers should not be used in enclosed spaces as the dry powder can be easily inhaled and it is not easy to clean up the leftover residue after the fire is put out.

 

Dry Powder extinguishers are needed by garages and workshops or where flammables such as liquid gases and heating oils are stored.

 

These are also available in Automatic versions for engines, generators, etc.

Key features:

  • Suitable for multi-risk use - Class A, B and C fires and electrical fires

  • Quality deep-drawn cylinders

  • High-quality heavy-duty brass valves

  • Visible pressure gauge

  • Corrosion-resistant finish

  • Available in Automatic version

Wet Chemical

An extremely effective fire extinguisher designed specifically for Class F fires involving cooking oils and fat. It is also suitable for class A fires involving solid materials.

 

The chemical knocks out the flames, cools the burning oil and seals the surface preventing re-ignition. The fire extinguisher is easy to use producing a gentle but highly effective spray avoiding hot oil splashing on the user (suitable for Fat Fryers).

Wet Chemical extinguishers are needed by fish & chip shops, fast food chains and commercial kitchens. 

 

These are also available as portable and automatic units.

Key features:

  • Suitable for Class F fires

  • Quality deep-drawn cylinders

  • High-quality heavy-duty brass valves

  • Internal polyethylene lining

  • Corrosion-resistant finish

  • Available as portable and automatic unit

Clean Agent

This Clean Agent Gas Fire Extinguisher was developed as an environmentally acceptable alternative to Halon and is a multi-purpose unit offering protection against class A, B and C fires as well as electrical fires. These fire extinguishers are extremely effective in smothering fires without damaging delicate electronic equipment or sensitive goods. They are electrically non-conductive, leave no residue, require no cleanup after discharge and are safer for the environment.

 

This extinguisher discharges a stream of gas and liquid droplets that are propelled into

the heart of the fire, stopping combustion through a chemical reaction and by absorbing the fire’s heat.

 

They are designed for the protection of commercial and industrial facilities that usually contain sensitive equipment, electronic data or materials that could be damaged by conventional agents. They are suitable for boats, aircrafts, laboratories, art galleries, museums, data/document storage, computer and server centers, electronics manufacturing, telecommunication rooms etc.

 

These are also available in Automatic versions.

Key features:

  • Suitable for multi-risk use – Class A, B, C, D, F, K fires as well as electrical fires

  • Manufactured in the UK

  • Clean Agent: Ozone friendly Halon replacement

  • Leaves no residue or mess

  • Stored pressure and ready for use

  • Simple to operate

  • Non-conductive - safe for use on live electrical fires

  • Brass valve assembly with pressure gauge

  • Available in Automatic version

Mobile Trolley Units

Many facilities and work environments, such as forecourts (petrol stations) and construction sites don’t have convenient walls or dedicated areas where a fire extinguisher stand can be placed. Fire extinguisher trolleys are often used as fire points in such environments to provide temporary fire protection. They can also be used as fire safety cover for events such as trade fairs or outdoor markets.

We supply trolley-mounted units in a choice of sizes and extinguishant to suit the specific fire risk:

  • CO2 – Rapid fire control with minimum clean up

  • Dry Powder – Highly effective with a fast flame knockdown

  • Foam – Multipurpose use
