Type of Standards


This standard specifies the characteristics of spherical automatic fire ball extinguisher that are of charge mass not exceeding 1.4 kg with circumference of 147 mm and that are suitable for use on Class A, B, and C fires only.
Requirements are specified for the compulsory minimum performance in extinguishing Class A, B, and C test fires.
NOTE Units that meet the requirements of this standard fall within the category of Automatic fire ball extinguisher.
NOTE The fire performance tests in this standard are the minimum necessary to determine fire type suitability and do not equate to a formal fire rating. As a result, these Automatic fire ball extinguisher are not intended to be an equivalent or replacement for more traditional type fire extinguishers that carry a formal fire rating.
NOTE The product contains a small pyrotechnic detonator (1.4 g explosive) inside the ball. The small detonator has no ballistic hazards or concussive shock during burst and can only activate by direct naked flame.
