Types of fire fighting equipment

Fire extingishers

A fire extinguisher should never be used to to prop open a door. It should always be fixed to the wall, and it should be checked monthly by a service technician.
When choosing a fire extinguisher, be sure to pick one that will fight the fires that are most likely to develop in your business or home.

Fire Hoses

A fire hose is one of the standard types of fire fighting equipment, and it is efficient against even the largest fires. The fire hose reel lets out a powerful stream of water that extinguishes large fires. The hoses usually come in a fire hose reel, which holds 30 metres of tubing.

Fire Buckets

Fire buckets are considered the simplest piece of fire fighting equipment. The bucket is made of plastic or metal and its written ‘Fire’

It can be filled with water or you can fill it with a flame smoothering powder like Flamezorb.

Fire and welding blankets

Fire blankets are used to smother small fires that start in the workplace or at home. Economy fire blankets or white kitchen blankets are a good choice for a small kitchen or for a caravan.
Welding blankets are used to protect welders from sparks and splatter. These blankets come in three different weights and sizes.


Flamezorb is a powder that effectively smothers fires. It’s non-toxic and easy to clean up. Each bag of Flamezorb has enough powder to fill a ten litre fire bucket.
