ü Has the longest service life of most extinguishers, 10 years before an extended service will need to be carried out.
X Co2 is the most toxic gas when it comes to human health. It is a highly suffocating gas, whose concentration of even 9% in the breathing air would make a person unconscious within minutes, special consideration should be taken before installing in confined spaces.
X Co2 fire extinguishers can extinguish flammable liquid fires but are not suitable for use on flammable solids, flammable gasses or cooking fat fires.
X Very loud when used and a untrained person may think the extinguisher is not working correctly.
X If used incorrectly frost burns can result.
X Not field refillable, has to be returned to a refilling depot, so most companies use an exchange cylinder service that can be quite expensive.
