Do I need Fire Extinguishers?
If you have premises used for business or social purposes, vehicles such as
transport, heavy construction machinery, marine or service vehicles, or if you work
on a large construction site it is likely that you will need some sort of fire
extinguishing equipment installed.
How many do I need and what type?
The quantity of extinguishers you need will be dependent on a number of different
factors including the nature of your business, the size of your premises and the
number of risks that are present in that area.
The type of extinguisher will depend mainly on the risks prevalent in your premises
however and should be determined in conjunction with a current fire risk assessment
however out technicians can advise you if there is any doubt.

Water Extinguishers - (Class A fires)
Ideal for fires involving wood, paper, fabrics and other similar types of free-burning
materials. This high quality extinguisher is British Standard approved and gives
an impressive fire-fighting performance.
CO2 Extinguishers - (Class B fires)
Suitable for use on flammable liquids and electrical fires, both models contain
a non-toxic, clean gas. When used they leave little residue and so are ideal for
offices and workshops because damage to equipment is kept to a minimum.
Foam Extinguishers (Class A and B fires)
Ideal for multi-risk situations. Free-burning materials such as wood and paper as
well as flammable liquids can be tackled very effectively.
Powder Extinguishers (Class A, B and C fires)
Powder extinguishers are extremely versatile; suitable for use on free-burning materials,
flammable liquids and flammable gases. Because of the non-conductivity of dry powder
they are also ideal for electrical fires. They are not generally suitable for use indoors
unless a specific risk assessment has been carried out to mitigate their use.
Wet Chemical Extinguishers - (Class F fires)
An extremely effective extinguisher designed specifically for fires involving cooking oils
and fats. The chemical knocks out the flames, cools the burning oil and seals the surface
preventing re-ignition. The extinguisher is easy to use, producing a gentle but highly
effective spray which helps prevent hot oil splashing on the user.
Chrome / Stainless Steel
In situations where interior design and/or hygiene are important considerations this range is an
ideal solution. The highly polished surface keeps any interior looking modern without
compromising safety and can be regularly cleaned as the metal does not corrode.
