What type of fire can I use this fire extinguisher for?

Meticulously tested in laboratories, the Hercules fire extinguisher is capable of eliminating:

Class-B-Fire Class B
Class B fires which are flammable liquids such as paint, thinner, petrol, etc.
Class-E-Fire Class E
Class E fires which are electrical fires but do not include lithium battery fires.*

*C and E fires will reignite almost immediately as heat is still being generated. This is why the first step of eliminating a Class C or E fire is to turn off the source by shutting off the gas or electrical supply. If there is still a fire, the fire is likely to be a class A or B fire which will be much easier to put out as compared to a C or E fire.


How to use a fire extinguisher?

Before you use a fire extinguisher, always ensure you have an escape route. If you have to use a fire extinguisher, do so at a safe distance. When in doubt, always choose to run. Even professional fire fighters in full fire resistant suits have been trained to never put their own lives at risk.

Always remember PASS. You can also read the instruction label on the fire extinguisher.
