FAQ's

My company uses Halon fire extinguishers. Can these be refilled?

Halon 1211 (BCF) extinguishers (denoted by green colour coding) have been banned from general use as outlined in the EC Directive E3093/94 (except for the armed services, police and aircraft) since December 2003 due to their ozone depleting properties. The team can advise on the disposal of Halon fire extinguishers, and supply a new, more appropriate fire extinguisher.

How long will a fire extinguisher last?

A well maintained fire extinguisher is expected to last 10 years. The professionals offer a supply and maintenance service, and can guide you on getting a replacement, or maintaining your current one to extend its lifespan.

The British Standard 5306-8:2000: Selection and Installation of Portable Fire Extinguishers will tell you how many fire extinguishers will be needed for your business buildings. The team can also advise you on this.

When must fire extinguisher servicing be completed?

In accordance with British Standard 5306 which is legally binding, fire extinguisher servicing must be done on an annual basis. A fire extinguisher service from the team ensures that your organisation fulfils its legal and insurer requirements, and gives you reassurance about your safety.

Fire extinguishers

The experts offer a range of services for businesses, including providing all types of fire extinguishers. Whether you need one foam fire extinguisher or several dry powder fire extinguishers, they can help you.

There are 5 fire class ratings, which detail the nature of a fire. It is important to be aware of these classes, and the types of fires which may happen at your workplace. This will help you to tackle the fire carefully.

The classes are Class A, which covers organic material like wood, paper, and cotton. 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 covers cooking oil and fat fire.

Various fire extinguishers are useful against different types 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. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are effective against Class B fires and electrical fires. The white cloud of CO2 produced 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 appropriate 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 installed at an assigned location, fire extinguisher commissioning must be undertaken by a professional engineer. This is to ensure that the fire extinguisher was not damaged during transit and is fit for its intended purpose.
