Fire Extinguishers for Trucks
For larger vehicles that carry certain goods, there are ADR regulations that must be adhered to. This often requires trucks to be fitted with fire extinguishers to help tackle any small fires that may break out. A truck fire extinguisher could be any type, but it’s recommended that at least one unit be a powder fire extinguisher as these can tackle A, B and C class fires.
The ADR regulations apply to vehicles carrying dangerous goods and specify a minimum of two fire extinguishers. However, lorry fire extinguishers can be useful even if your vehicles don’t carry traditionally hazardous goods, since vehicle fires and accidents are all too common. At Fire Safety Equipment, we stock a range of large vehicle fire extinguishers to help you keep your drivers and your valuable fleet safe.

Fire Safety Challenges of Trucks
Trucks and heavy goods vehicles will all use some form of fuel, including the possibility of LPG and diesel being in use. Add into this other fire safety challenges for trucks, such as electrical faults creating sparks and exhaust component issues, and it becomes clear that you need the right fire extinguishers onboard to quickly tackle any fire.
From fires caused by accidents on the roads to those that happen while stationary, give your drivers the tools to protect themselves and their trucks with powder fire extinguishers and LITH-EX fire extinguishers. This is an especially important tool if your drivers stay in their vehicles overnight or drive for extended periods as the risk of fire - and the sources of ignition - increases.
