Our red CO2 fire extinguishers are BS EN3 Kitemarked and come with a minimum 5 year warranty. We carry small CO2 fire extinguishers that are equipped with a frost-free safety horn and wall hook for hanging, as well as larger 10kg and 30kg wheeled CO2 fire extinguishers suitable for premises with major electrical installations.
