UNIQUE COLOUR CODED FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

Jactone Premium Range Fire Extinguishers are manufactured with a unique colour coding system to identify the type of fire extinguisher. This is in accordance with the guidelines in BS 7863:2009 – Recommendations for colour coding to indicate the extinguishing media contained in portable fire extinguishers.

In the event of a fire, you and your staff, when suitably trained to identify extinguishers by colour, will easily and quickly be able to identify the type of extinguisher required. This is valuable and critical time saved when helping to evacuate a building or extinguish a small fire, if safe to do so.


Colour Coding System

Jactone Premium Range Fire Extinguishers are uniquely colour coded, making them clearly distinguished and good looking. Where possible they are fitted with colour coded labels, valve handles and bases.

Unlike other fire extiguishers which have a colour coded label only to identify the contents of the extinguisher, Jactone Premium Range Fire Extiguishers have this and go further by having colour coded handles and bases (where possible) to identify the different types of fire extinguisher and their contents.


Identifiable from any angle

When visibility is poor or an extinguisher is turned around, can you tell which fire extinguisher you are picking up? Our unique colour coding gives you the best opportunity to do this, when it is needed most.

This unique colour coding helps:

> Easy identification of contents
> Identify extinguishers from any angle
> Identify extinguishers from a distance
> Make the extinguisher more visible
> Avoid confusion between different types of extinguisher



What type of extinguisher?

When turned around can you tell which type of fire extinguisher you are picking up?

COLOUR CODING TO INDICATE TYPE AND CONTENT


Carbon Dioxide

Colour : Black

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class B and electrical fires. CO2 fire extinguishers are primarily for use on fires of electrical origin. Being non-toxic and leaving no residue, CO2 will not harm machinery or electrical equipment.



Foam

Colour : Cream

Foam or AFFF foam fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A solid combustible fires (wood, paper, textiles) and class B flammable liquid fires (petrol, diesel, paint, solvents). Foam fire extinguishers create a cooling blanket effect, smothering burning materials and preventing reignition.



Powder

Colour : Blue

Powder fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A, B and C fires making them ideal for use in environments containing multiple fire risks. They are highly effective against petrol and volatile liquids which makes them ideal for vehicle protection.



Water

Colour : Red

Water fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A combustible material fires (wood, paper, textiles). Water fire extinguishers create a cooling effect, penetrating burning materials and preventing reignition. Water fire extinguishers are environmentally friendly.



Water Mist

Colour : Red

Water mist fire extinguishers are designed for use on most common types of fire including class A combustible materials and class F cooking oil and fat fires. The water mist can also be used on electrical fires up to 1000v. The water mist fire extinguishers produce extremely fine water mist droplets which have highly effective fire extinguishing capabilities.



Wet Chemical

Colour : Yellow

Wet chemical fire extinguishers are specifically designed for use on class F cooking oil and fat fires involving kitchen appliances and equipment. They are also suitable for use on class A combustible material fires.
