Extinguishers for hair salon


Recommended Posts

I would recommend 2 fire extinguishers for a hair salon:

A CO2 extinguisher for electrical fires as it leaves no mess behind and does not damage any electrical goods etc. The only problem with a CO2 is that if used on flammable liquids (bleach, peroxide etc.) it can spread the liquid due to the high pressure output and make the fire a lot worse.

A powder extinguisher would be ideal for use on the flammable liquids and can also be used on electrical fires. Unfortunately the powder extinguisher leaves a lot of mess behind and any electrical products near where a powder extinguisher is discharged will most likely be ruined.

By having a CO2 placed near the electrical products and a powder placed near to the flammable liquid storage you would have the best of both worlds.
