However, each extinguisher has a specific colour code which adheres to the contents. This is so the right extinguisher for the right type of fire is used.
Here are the different colour codes for each types of fire extinguisher and what they indicate:
|Fire Class||Type of Fire / Fuel||Fire Class & Icon||Colour / Colours|
Fires involving Solid Combustibles
Wood, paper, textiles, straw, coal etc.
