A large fire in a mine can be a serious threat. If that mine is under prepared, the consequences can be horrific. The hazardous nature and typical remoteness of mining operations makes extra vigilance in preventing and adequately preparing for fires a financial, legal and ethical necessity.

When it comes to the complexities and dangers of the mining industry, no other company has Gielle’s depth of experience, knowledge, skills or technology. We are one of the region’s largest fire protection providers with decades of successful implementations of large-scale fire systems in complex and production-intensive operations like mining.

Our end-to-end mining solutions range from system design and installation, maintenance and technical support, refurbishments and upgrades, through to consulting, engineering advice, firefighting equipment, training, evacuation plans and more:

Mining Water extinguishers
Suitable for Class A fires. Not considered effective for Class B and Class C fires, and dangerous if used for electrically energised equipment or cooking oils or fats.

Water Fire Extinguishers offer protection against Class A fires that typically involve common combustible materials such as wood, paper, straw, textiles, soft furnishing and materials. 

Mining Foam extinguishers
Suitable for Class A and Class B fires, with limited effectiveness for Class F fires. Not considered effective for Class C fires, and dangerous if used for electrically energised equipment.

Foam Fire Extinguishers offer protection against Class A and B Fires that typically involve liquids or materials that liquefy such as petrol, oils, paints and fats. Foam extinguishers form a layer over the top of the burning substance and remove oxygen from the fire. Foam Fire Extinguishers may also be referred to as AFFF (aqueous film-forming foam)

Mining Powder extinguishers
Powder Fire Extinguishers offer protection against Class A, B and C Fires and are a general multi-purpose extinguisher. Powder Fire Extinguishers are safe to use on live electrical equipment but the powder residue may also cause harm to some equipment. Dry Powder Extinguishers work as the Powder reacts with the fire and the powder spreads therefore extinguishing the fire.

Mining Carbon Dioxide CO2 extinguishers

Suitable for Class E fires. Has limited effectiveness on Class A, Class B and Class F fires. Has limited effectiveness on Class B fires. Not considered effective for Class F fires.

Mining Wet chemical extinguishers

Suitable on Class F fires and may be used on Class A fires. Not considered effective for Class B or Class C fires and dangerous if used on Class E fires. 

Mining Novec extinguishers

The unique Novec 1230 Fire Extinguisher (6kg) uses a sustainable chemical agent that is electrically non-conductive, , reduce the risk of damaging sensitive equipment, leaves no messy residue and requires no clean-up. It has a completely non-magnetic stainless steel shell and non-magnetic valve, hose and nozzle, and can be safely used in an MRI room.

Mining Halogenic extinguishers
Older types of extinguishers may still be encountered. These include reversible soda acid and foam type extinguishers together with halon 1211 (BCF) type. Halon 1211 has been found to be an ozone depleting substance. 
Unless special exemptions have been obtained, BCF extinguishers have been banned and should be returned to a fire protection supplier or the fire brigade as soon as possible.
