There are different fire extinguisher types available. Building Code of Australia mandates coverage of fire extinguisher with respect to A, B, E and F rated Fire. Extinguishers like ABE powder cover A, B and E rating where as to make allowance for F rated fire we need extinguishers like wet chemical extinguisher. Class F fire relates to fire that can occur during heating of cooking oil.

Hence the standard requires the installation of wet chemical extinguisher at the right location if there is any activity relating to heating of cooking oil. All of the above are as per the requirement of Building Code of Australian and relevant Design standard AS2444-2001 which is the most recent Australian Standard.
