The Best Fire Extinguishers for Cars

What is the best fire extinguisher for cars? To answer that question, first the features of a great fire extinguisher for cars must be looked at. So for an Extinguisher to be the right fit for a car, it has to be able to deal with:

  • Class A Fires (Wood, Paper or Any Carbonaceous materials)
  • Class B Fires (Flammable Liquids)
  • Class C Fires (Flammable Gases)

Bearing this in mind there are only a few extinguishers that can combat all of these classes of fire.

This then makes a Dry Powder fire extinguisher the most suitable and affordable choice. These extinguishers however aren’t recommended for use within a confined space so should be avoided for use inside motorhomes and caravans when there are people close. But instead for those cases a AFF Foam fire extinguisher is recommended.

Here at Fireology we have a great range of products that would be suitable for use in cars, caravans and motorhomes. It is important that the right type of extinguisher is used on each fire, we aim to aid that choice with our expertise here at Fireology.
