MED ABC/Monnex Powder, Cartridge Operated Type

The EVERSAFE range of portable cartridge operated type fire extinguishers is certified to BS EN3 and is manufactured under an ISO 9001 approved Quality System. Extinguishers are available in a wide range of sizes with ABC dry powder, Monnex powder, AFFF foam and water models.

The extinguisher bodies are fully deep drawn from cold rolled steel, and pressure tested to twice the extinguisher’s working pressure. Cylinders are externally coated with polyester (with phosphate under treatment) for maximum corrosion resistance and have passed the 480-hour salt spray test. The water and foam extinguishers are internally coated with “performance polymer alloy” to prevent corrosion. Its chrome plated operating brass headcap is fitted with a safety relief valve.
