Fire Extinguisher Calculator

Fire extinguishers are potentially life saving pieces of fire safety equipment as they can be the means of escape, as well as fighting the fire. In order to be compliant with British Standards, the number of fire extinguishers, as well as the types of fire extinguishers, that are required will depend on the fire safety risks of the area the fire extinguishers are installed in.

British Standards provides specific guidance on Class A, Class B and Class F fire risk areas and the number of fire extinguishers needed depending on the size of the environment. Our handy fire extinguisher calculator is designed to assist you with how many fire extinguishers are required to fight Class A, Class B and Class F fire risks on your premises as advised in BS 5306*.
