DP ABE EXTG - Dry Powder (Class) Extinguisher

  • DP stands for Dry Powder
  • ABE we believe stands for the various classes of fire that this extinguisher can be used on
    • Class A – Paper, textiles, wood, most plastics & rubber
    • Class B – Flammable liquids
    • Class C – Combustible gases
    • Class D - Combustible metals
    • Class E – Electrically energised equipment
  • EXTG means extinguisher

We came across this as an abbreviation when a company was listing all the various fire extinguishers it had checked as part of the Essential Safety Measure Service report (ESMSR)
