Advice

A. Fire extinguishers play a vital role in any fire protection plan in any environment. They are a first aid response to fire and can help prevent catastrophic damage to property and even loss of life. Read more about the importance of fire extinguishers here.
A. Should a fire take hold, it’s imperative that people in the building know where vital fire-fighting equipment is located and are confident they’ll be picking up the right fire extinguisher appropriate for the class of fire it’s being used on. Extinguishers are quickly identified by their colour – a colour coded label is placed along the top of the extinguisher to announce its type and contents. Find out more here.
A. All preventative measures begin with a fire risk assessment. That means identifying potential hazards and the areas and people at risk, and planning and putting the necessary fire safety equipment in place in case of an emergency. Typically there are several classes of fire present on the premises of hospital and events, therefore it is imperative to ensure that you have the correct type of extinguisher to suit the potential class of fire, and there should be clear exits and signposted escape routes. Find out more about fire safety at events here.
A. It’s the business premises and property owner’s responsibility to ensure that measures are taken to reduce the risk of extinguishers being vandalised, stolen or subject to wear and tear in high traffic areas. This requirement is also stipulated in the British Standards. Find out more about keeping your fire safety equipment protected here.
A. Portable extinguishers can be the means of escape as well as fighting the fire so it’s vital you know that they are compliant. All types of extinguishers should undergo a service. Best practice recommends a responsible person should use a competent person to maintain your fire safety equipment and, as a minimum, this should be undertaken once a year in accordance with BS 5306-3:2017. Find out more about the importance of fire extinguisher servicing and maintenance here.
A. Our Contempo range of extinguishers have been designed with elegant and luxurious interiors in mind so there’s now no reason to sacrifice fire safety equipment in order to keep up appearances.
