Fire Extinguishers are our Speciality.
Probably the most easily recognisable piece of fire safety equipment, fire extinguishers usually represent the first line of defence in the event of a fire. We can help you identify the types you will require as part of an overall fire risk assessment, the supply or by taking over the maintenance of systems we have not installed, and provide you with a trusted continued service.

Choosing Fire Extinguishers.
Fire Extinguisher Types
Fire extinguishers are available in different types, with each one having specific fire classes that are suitable for use on. Fire extinguishers meeting the current British Standards (BS EN3) should have a red body (RAL 3000) and an agent-specific colour band, covering between 5-10% of the surface, relating to the extinguisher contents.
When choosing which fire extinguisher is most suitable for your needs on given premises, a fire risk assessment is the safest way to help you to identify the fire risks and hence exactly which extinguisher would be needed should a fire happen.
Fire extinguishers come in many sizes some more suitable for commercial purposes, but they are just as important in the home, caravans, cars, boats, and many other places where fire can present danger.
Water extinguishers are used on Class A fires involving solid combustibles. They are not suitable for fires fuelled by flammable liquids or where electricity is involved.
AFFF Foam is a versatile fire extinguisher which can be used for Class A and B fires. The foaming agent helps to prevent re-ignition.
CO2 fire extinguishers are used for fires involving electrical apparatus. CO2 is not a conductor and does not leave behind any harmful residue.
Dry powder extinguishers can be used on Class A, B, C and electrical fires. Dry powder is not recommended for use inside because there is a risk of inhalation. It can obscure vision and cause damage to goods and machinery.
Wet chemical extinguishers are for fires involving cooking fats and oils. They are most suitable for use in restaurants and kitchens. They usually have an additional class A rating.
