My organisation uses Halon fire extinguishers. Can these be repaired?

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

Fire extinguishers

The specialists offer a a number of services for organisations, including providing all sorts of fire extinguishers. Whether you want one foam fire extinguisher or several dry powder fire extinguishers, they can help you.

There are 5 fire class ratings, which describe the nature of a fire. It is important to be aware of these classes, and the kinds of fires which could occur at your workplace. This will help you to tackle the fire effectively.

The classes are Class A, which covers organic material like wood chips, 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 refers to cooking oil and fat fire.

Various 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 a few examples. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are effective against Class B fires and electrical fires. The white cloud of CO2 sprayed over the fire 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 fire at the same time.

Before a fire extinguisher is installed at a designated location, fire extinguisher commissioning must be done by a component engineer. This is to ensure that the fire extinguisher was not damaged during transportation and is fit for its intended purpose.
