Is your business prepared for the unexpected?

Fires aren’t planned but you can plan to be ready if a fire occurs, with the correct fire extinguisher, fully serviced and ready to use.

Do you have the right extinguisher for the fire?

Different types of fires require certain types of fire extinguishers to tackle the fire effectively. Water for paper, CO2 for electrical fires etc. Using the wrong extinguisher can make the fire worse, and even endanger the user. That is why it’s extremely important to have the correct extinguishers for your business to deal with the fires you might experience.

The only way to do this correctly and protect your staff and business is to have a fire assessment from a fully qualified fire engineer, who will recommend the types of extinguishers needed and where to place them in your premises in NorthamptonshireMilton KeynesBedfordHuntingdonCorbyDaventryCambridge, Brackley and Leicester.

  • The best type of extinguisher needed for business premises

Here at ISE Fire, we specialise in fire risk assessment for all industries offices, warehouses, factories and more. Take a look here at our specialties within the industrial sector.

Is your fire extinguisher servicing up to date?

Just having a fire extinguisher is not enough.  Fire extinguishers lose their effectiveness over time

They can also get damaged, so need to be checked regularly to make sure they’re ready for service when you need it. After all, would you want to be in front of a fire with a non-functioning fire extinguisher?

Fire extinguishers need servicing annually, with most extinguishers requiring an extended service every 5 years. Your fire extinguisher service includes complete checking of the extinguisher condition and components to prolong the life of the extinguisher. 

Extended fire extinguisher services include complete discharging and refilling, to ensure the contents are fresh and the extinguisher is working as intended. 

The variation to this rule is the black label Co2 fire extinguishers, which require refurbishing 10 years after manufacture. 

Regular servicing protects you, the people you work with and your business.

Quick guide to fire extinguishers

When it comes to fire extinguishers, there are four main types, and they are colour-coded to help you identify the right one to use.

Old fire extinguishers were completely in the identifying colour, but following the latest regulation BS EN3, the body of the fire extinguisher is red, with a coloured band at the top to show the extinguisher type.

In the event of a fire, you and your employees are able to identify exactly the type of fire extinguisher required for that type of fire based on the colour label.

Different fire extinguishers will have slightly different requirements in terms of storing them.
