Under the Fire Safety Order 2005, article 13, all business premises must install and maintain portable fire extinguishers. They must be of the right type for the identified risks and positioned in the correct locations with adequate signage. This also forms part of BS 5306 part 8 2012.
There are many different types and sizes of fire extinguishers so it is important that your business has the correct type and size for its risks and have enough power (rating) to deal with any potential fire situation. If you are unsure on any issues concerning your protection systems or their installation call our qualified team for further advice.
Our dedicated team of engineers are all BAFE approved and are conversant with BS5306. All of our extinguishers are installed and commissioned in accordance with BS5306-8 and serviced in accordance with BS5306-3.
All water, foam and dry powder extinguishers that we supply can be refilled by our engineers and therefore do not require replacing with a new appliance after five years (unless they have been damaged). This saves our clients money and is also more environmentally friendly.
