Lithium Battery Fire Extinguishers
From mobile phones, through to laptops, tablets, cars, solar panels, forklift trucks and industrial equipment, lithium batteries are a core component and play a vital role in modern life. However, with this convenience and usefulness, also comes risk. As the demand for lithium batteries increases and the more widespread they are, increases the risk of more fires caused from lithium batteries occurring. However, we are here to help keep you and your property safe at Darley Fire Protection with the range of fire safety services we provide, which includes the supply and installation of lithium battery fire extinguishers in the Midlands.
How Do Lithium Battery Fire Extinguishers Work?
Fires caused from lithium batteries have the real potential to not only spread quickly from one cell to the next, which is known as thermal runaway, but they can also cause explosions and release harmful gases. Standard fire extinguishers are unfortunately not up to the task of correctly dealing with lithium battery fires and they can even make the fire worse. Hence why lithium battery fire extinguishers were created.
The lithium battery fire extinguishers that we supply and install contain an agent called Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion (AVD) along with some water. The water cools the fire and the fuel source is enveloped completely by vermiculite which creates a barrier and stops the fire some spreading. This is a safe and quick way to stop lithium fire outbreaks in their tracks.
We are proud to be a local fire safety company to the West & East Midlands. Our core areas we can supply and install fire extinguishers include the following:

CO2 Fire Extinguishers
Carbon Dioxide extinguishers are the main type of extinguisher used to put out electrical fires, but they can also be used on Class B (flammable liquids) fires. So if your business has a server room or contains lots of electrical equipment, you will undoubtably need a CO2 extinguisher. You can call us on 08000862695 to book a Fire Risk Assessment to see if your business needs a CO2 extinguisher.
Foam Fire Extinguishers
Used for Class B fires, foam extinguishers are required for buildings that store flammable liquids like petrol and paint. If you’re unsure which model is suitable for your business, give us a call today for friendly advice from one of our certified engineers.
Water Fire Extinguishers
Water extinguishers are the most common type of extinguishers and are suited to Class A fire risks (organic material like paper & coal). You’ll find that most buildings such as Hospitals, Schools, Offices and Shops will certainly require this type of extinguisher. Feel free to get in touch for more information and advice regarding water extinguishers.
Powder Fire Extinguishers
Dry powder extinguishers, also known as ABC extinguishers, are undoubtably the most versatile type of extinguisher. However, as they should not be used in enclosed spaces, this type of extinguisher is predominantly recommended for garages, welding businesses, or locations with large boiler rooms. To find out if a powder extinguisher is right for your business, call us or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers
As the only extinguisher that should be used on fires that involve cooking oils and fats, wet chemical extinguishers are specifically required in commercial kitchens, canteens and restaurants.
