Fire extinguisher, red, by Delta of Belgium serial no 84 on base.

This handheld fire extinguisher was produced by Delta Extinctors in Belgium, for the European market of cars and boats. The extinguisher is unmarked or colour coded, but the handwritten ‘ABC’ sticker suggests it might be dry powder extinguisher.

This lack of markings highlights the benefit of the colour coding system introduced in 1997, making it easier to identify the correct extinguisher.
