The Firepower 4kg ABC Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher covers Class A, B and C fires making it suitable for most fires involving wood/paper, flammable liquids and flammable gases. The Firepower 4KG Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher is also recommended for large vehicles such as lorries and haulage trailers. Dry Powders are an excellent all rounder and can give a fast knockdown to a fire by smothering the flames and therefore starving the fire of the oxygen it needs to keep burning. Dry Powders are refilled every 5 years, however they need to be factory filled and it is usually cheaper to replace with new or service exchange.
The only negative with dry powders is that they are very messy when used and can give poor visibility due to the particles within the air and can hinder your escape. They can also cause breathing difficulties in those who suffer from respiratory diseases such as asthma and bronchitis.
British Standard 5306 recently updated their recommendations suggesting to only install dry powder extinguishers inside a building if deemed absolutely necessary by a fire risk assessment.
