My business uses Halon fire extinguishers. Can these be serviced?

Halon 1211 (BCF) extinguishers (denoted by green colour coding) have been banned from general use as stated in the EC Directive E3093/94 (except for the armed services, police and aircraft) since December 2003 due to their ozone depleting characteristics.

Fire extinguishers

The professionals offer a selection of services for organisations, including supplying all kinds of fire extinguishers. Whether you require one foam fire extinguisher or numerous water fire extinguishers, they can help you.

There are 5 fire class ratings, which detail the nature of a fire. It is essential to know of these classes, and the kinds of fires which may occur at your workplace. This will help you to tackle the fire properly.

The classes include Class A, which covers organic material like wood chips, paper, or fabric. Class B refers to a flammable liquid fire, whilst Class C is a flammable gas fire. Metal fires come under Class D, whilst Class F refers to cooking oil and fat fire.

Different fire extinguishers are effective against different kinds of fires. Water fire extinguishers are effective against Class A fires and are often used in warehouses, offices, shops and schools to name but some examples. CO2 fire extinguishers are effective against Class B fires and electrical fires. The white cloud of CO2 generated over the blaze will deprive it of oxygen.

A foam extinguisher is suitable for Class A and Class B type fires. From paper to paint and oil, foam fire extinguishers are suitable for a number of environments.

A powder fire extinguisher can handle Class A, B and C fires, and they come in a variety of different capacities. Finally a wet chemical fire extinguisher is designed to handle oil and fat fires which can be a common occurrence at takeaways, restaurants and university halls. A spray of wet chemicals is applied to the oil of fat fire, which seals and cools the blaze at the same time.

Before a fire extinguisher is fitted at an assigned location, fire extinguisher commissioning must be completed by an experienced engineer. This is to ensure that the fire extinguisher was not damaged during transportation and is fit for its intended purpose.

Co2 Fire Extinguisher

Fire extinguishers are an important tool in controlling fires. With so many varieties available on the market its important that you have the correct fire extinguishers for your commercial premises, in full working condition at all times.

Failure to install and maintain fully functional fire extinguishers can result in large fines and legal action from third parties and staff. Your insurer could also withhold compensation payments resulting from the preventable fire and smoke damage towards your fixed assets.

When you invest significant amounts of time and money into your business, you will want to make sure that your investment is protected. Legally compliant fire extinguishers will offer complete peace of mind that this is the case. When replacement fire extinguishers are necessary, you can be assured of a quick call-out response rate.
