Dry powder fire extinguishers The transitional period for the introduction of the new fire extinguisher regulations detailed in Section (K)-Appendix 3, has presented an anomaly regarding the use of dry powder hand-held fire extinguishers. The existing regulations in (K)3 state simply that dry powder extinguishers are prohibited. However, the new Appendix 3 regulations detail dry powder as a permitted extinguishant for a hand-held system.
These new regulations, although not mandatory until 2019 for new build vehicles and 2022 for all other vehicles, can be applied now if a competitor wishes to in advance of the mandatory implementation. Therefore – providing it meets the minimum quantity of extinguishant detailed in Section (K) Appendix 3 – a dry powder hand-held fire extinguisher can now be used.
