There are several types of portable fire extinguishers available. Each type of extinguisher may be rated for one or more classes of fire, although in some cases, an extinguisher may have limited use on a particular class of fire. They can be dangerous if used on a fire for which the extinguisher is not designed. Water, Foam, and Wet Chemical extinguishers should not be used on electrical fires.
Fire Blankets are mainly used to smother small Class F fires where cooking oils & fats are involved. They can also be used to extinguish burning clothing by wrapping the fire blanket around the victim. Another use can be to protect equipment while working alongside using cutting tools such as grinders and oxy-acetylene.
Fire hose reels are required in most classes of buildings where a fire hydrant system is installed or to serve any fire compartment with a floor area greater than 500m2.
Fire doors are an important part of a building infrastructure and can provide adequate compartmentation and assist with a safe passage to a required exit in the event of an emergency or fire situation. Constructed of fire rated infill material with reinforcing plates for fixing of hinges, closers and latches, timber facings are bound to the infill to form a strong sandwich panel construction.
Exit Signs & Emergency Lighting is required in most classes of buildings where the floor area of any storey in the building is over 300m?. Exit Signs & Emergency Lighting is an essential requirement in the evacuation of a building during an emergency, power failure or fire situation where smoke may inhibit the path of travel to the nearest exit.
Smoke alarms are now mandatory in all homes, caravans and campervans throughout NSW. Don't get caught out without your smoke alarms ! Without installing smoke alarms, you run a very big risk of harsh penalties. Your insurnace claims shall also become null and void in the event your building burns down and it has been found that you have not installed an operating smoke alarm.
