Flammable materials within a warehouse

Warehouses are large areas where goods are stored, processed and distributed, making them vital components of supply chains. Flammable materials commonly found in warehouses include liquids like paints, solvents and fuels, gases such as propane and acetylene, and combustible solids like wood, paper and textiles. These materials pose significant fire hazards due to their ability to ignite easily and sustain combustion.

  • Class A: Fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper, textiles, and plastics.

  • Class B: Fires involving flammable liquids like petrol, diesel, oils, and solvents.

  • Class C: Fires involving gases like propane, butane, and natural gas.

  • Class F: Fires involving cooking oils and fats typically found in kitchens and food processing areas.

It's crucial for warehouse operators to identify and properly store flammable materials according to their classifications to minimise fire risks and ensure compliance with safety regulations.
