Where are CO2 fire extinguisher used?
Due to the specialised nature of CO2 fire extinguishers, there are a number of environments which should always have CO2 extinguishers on hand. Environments with a high number of electrical appliances, equipment, or wires should have access to CO2 extinguishers. Stores, hospitals, offices, and schools are all environments with electrical equipment and wires that could potentially start fires. CO2 fire extinguisher sizes vary and are usually available in 2kg and 5kg weights, it is best to consider where the extinguisher is to be used before deciding on the size needed for your location. A combination of foam and CO2 fire extinguishers is especially useful for these environments because together they cover the large majority of fires.
