Fire extinguishers

Fit-for-purpose fire extinguisher installation

As trusted fire extinguisher suppliers, we regularly perform installations across Melbourne. We ensure the fire extinguisher location and signage meets Australian Standards, and the type of extinguisher is matched to the potential fire application or class.

Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher can cost lives

The Australian Standard (AS2444) outlines the types of fire extinguishers that can be used on different classes of fire. See our Quick Guide for the best types of fire extinguishers to use according to AS2444 or download a more comprehensive guide by the FPA here.
