CO2 fire extinguishers are mainly used as additional object protection and generally do not count as basic protection. The CO2 fire extinguisher is suitable for fire class B (liquids). They do not cause any collateral damage and are therefore ideal for areas with valuable or sensitive objects, such as large and expensive machines. In addition, this extinguisher can extinguish live equipment quickly and effectively. CO2 fire extinguishers are frequently used in catering kitchens, electrical cabinets, computer rooms and museums.
BENOR or no BENOR?
This CO2-extinguisher 5kg is approved by most European law and can therefore be used in Belgium. However, the biggest part of Belgian fire insurances and fire-safety inspectors demand that in a professional context or in mutual areas in an apartment building fire extinguishers with a BENOR-label are used. To get a BENOR-label, the extinguisher needs to meet certain conditions that are specific for Belgium. If you want to be 100% sure of a positive fire-safety rapport then this fire extinguisher is the perfect choice!
When do I need an inspection sticker?
This fire extinguisher is, as mentioned above, suitable for the Belgian market (BENOR) and is available with or without an inspection sticker. Fire extinguishers that you use in a professional / public context or in common parts of apartments must be provided with an inspection sticker. Fire extinguishers that you buy at FireDiscounter including an inspection sticker must only be re-inspected one year after the invoice date.
