CheckFire was established in 1975, when it operated as a small family business from a garage in the family home. Today, we are almost unrecognisably a bigger company, yet we remain committed to family values more so than ever. Care, trust and passion are at the core of everything we do.

And we are still 100% a trade-only supplier. That means you can trust us to not only provide the products you require but also offer a comprehensive service alongside them. You can be confident that, in turn, you’re offering the best possible service to your customers. As the market leader, CheckFire is proud to offer an unprecedented level of support to the fire trade. The fog of regulations in the industry can often prove confusing. We can guide and assist you with our unrivalled industry knowledge and technical expertise.

CheckFire only stocks the most trusted and reliable fire safety equipment. We’re a long-standing supplier of the dependable Commander and CommanderEDGE fire extinguishers, many of which offer the trusted BSI Kitemark to demonstrate the utmost quality. Look to the exquisite Contempo range for beautifully hand-finished extinguishers to complement the finest interior design. Plus, we’re the go-to provider of high-performance ancillary products too. Our broad range includes an industry-leading selection of fire extinguisher cabinets, as well as trolleys and fire point stands, to provide peace of mind your fire safety equipment is protected from the elements and accidental damage.


CheckFire aims to equip all our customers with innovative products and unrivalled knowledge and insight for vital fire safety and protection. Throughout our 45 years in the trade, we have celebrated many milestones with so much more development to come in the years ahead.


Let's start at the beginning

The CheckFire story begun early in 1975 when Dr David Robins decided to change his career in education to one of business venture. With the help and advice off a close friend in Coventry he stepped out into selling and maintaining Fire Extinguishers. The home pantry was soon cleared out and turned into what became the CheckFire workshop and stores. A Morris Minor van was purchased and that’s how the story was lifted off the ground.

Soon after launching one of the very first fire extinguishers sold was a 2-gallon water cartridge operated fire extinguisher.

Opening of the home office doors

The office and warehouse have expanded over time but the first upgrade was in 1983, converting the double garage into an office.

Time to expand and relocate

In 1992 we relocated from our original home office, to our office based in Caerphilly – an office we still operate from to this day.

The beginning of Commander

This year marked the beginning of the Commander range. It was originally brought in via a component form and was both assembled and filled in our own workshops as a service exchange range. The range was officially registered as Commander in 2007.

Introducing CommanderEDGE

Seven years later we introduced CommanderEDGE as our fully Kitemarked range, which also includes our brand exclusive units, MultiCHEM and EnviroFoam.

Further expansion for CheckFire

In 2015 we acquired a our 30,000ft2 Distribution Centre, just a few miles down the road from our Caerphilly head office, which equipped us to effectively trade on a national scale and further expand our team to bring the best possible service to our customers.

Celebrating 10 years of Commander

2017 was a very exciting year for us as we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Commander brand registration. With over 15 fire extinguishers included in the range, this was a very proud moment for the team.

Contempo: an industry first

The launch of the Contempo brand was an industry first, born out of the realisation that fire safety was being sacrificed in order to maintain appearances within luxury decor settings. The Polished Gold, Antique Copper and Stainless Steel finishes were designed not so that they blended in with their surroundings, but they stood out as a feature in their own right.

Development for Commander

This was an exciting year for product development at CheckFire. We remodelled a number of our Commander units, with many now featuring higher fire ratings and Kitemark certification on selected units. We were also proud to launch our Commander Stands in 2018 and they’re still going strong five years on!

A fresh look for our website!

A fresh new look was given to the CheckFire website in 2018 and since then it has grown in content, resources, and shopping capabilities – with lots more exciting developments still in the pipeline.

Tubular Stand transformation

2019 was the year that we transformed the design of our Tubular Stand offering. We worked with our customers on understanding the challenges they faced with the previous design to develop a solution that took the pains away. The Single and Double Tubular Stands are available across all finishes; Classic Red, Stainless Steel, Antique Copper and Polished Gold.

Development in exceptional times

The Commander Safety Box was the latest innovation to join our range of Commander storage solutions in 2020 and we also introduced Rapid-10, a portable sanitising solution, demonstrating how we can all play a part in keeping the nation safe and protected from Coronavirus.

Our new brochure and digitalisation

The latest edition of the CheckFire brochure became available in March 2020. It was launched in digital format, to not only support with the reduction in paper and our carbon footprint via it’s delivery, but in line with our commitment of taking thorough and proactive measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Developments to CommanderEDGE

In April 2021, we made developments to our existing water, foam and powder 6ltr/kg CommanderEDGE fire extinguishers. Featuring increased fire ratings*, the newly developed fire extinguishers are at the fore of product innovation and feature the quality and performance you can trust from CommanderEDGE.

*6ltr foam only

New Product Developments

We were delighted to expand the existing CommanderEDGE range in 2022 and introduce a 6ltr Water Mist in the beginning of the year, featuring a multi-class 13A 25F fire rating. Later in the year, we launched our Commander Stand Inserts; available in both small and large sizes, the inserts are easily slotted into the base of the Commander Stand to provide additional protection and stability of fire extinguishers.
