Types of Fire Extinguishers

The type and size of fire extinguishers required for any building is based on the requirements of SANS 10400 Part T as well as the fire risk assessment to ensure the effectiveness of the extinguisher while reducing damage which may be caused by the extinguishing agent.

Please note: A local authority may specify the type of portable fire extinguishers to be provided and may require that a number of fire extinguishers be installed in excess of the number indicated in Table 11 (See SANS 10400-T: 2020)
