Fire Extinguishers

Containment

Fire Extinguishers Installations

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 all premises must carry out a fire risk assessment, article 13 of the FSO requires the responsible person to ensure that the premises are to the extent that it is appropriate equipped with fire-fighting appliances. This equipment must be the right type for the identified risks and be positioned in the correct locations with the adequate signage.

This process is documented in BS 5306 – 8:2012 Selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers.

South East Fire Protection LTD can survey, supply, commission and install a range of fire extinguishers for any type of building, business or risk, all extinguishers supplied are manufactured to the highest standards, CE Approved and Kite-marked to BS EN3.

Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 outlines the maintenance requirements. You must ensure that firefighting appliances are covered by a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained by a competent person in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.

This process is documented in BS 5306 – 3:2009 Commissioning & maintenance of portable fire extinguishers and BS 5306 – 9:2015 Recharging of portable fire extinguishers.

Our engineers are qualified to provide advice on the suitability, positioning of portable extinguishers and carry out annual maintenance requirement. Our engineers hold BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) certificates to provide our customers with the proof they are competent.

Different Classes of Fire

Class A | Fires that involve solid or organic materials, such as wood, plastics, paper, textiles, or coal.

Class B Fires that involve flammable liquids, such as gasoline, petroleum oil, paint, or diesel.

Class CFires that involve flammable gases, such as propane, butane, or methane.

Class D Fires that involve combustible metals, such as magnesium, lithium, sodium, potassium, titanium, or aluminium.

Class FFires that involve cooking oils and fats, such as vegetable oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, maize oil, lard, or butter (typically those used for deep-fat fryers).

Although it is not recognised as a separate class of fire in Europe, electrical fires that involve live equipment and electrical sources are also a consideration.

Used correctly CO2 works by suffocating the fire, displacing the oxygen in the air.

  • Approved to BSEN3
  • Kitemark, LPCB and MED approved
  • Squeeze Grip Operation
  • Corrosion Resistant Finish
  • Aluminium alloy construction
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher (Fire Class F)

Wet-Chemical-Fire-Extinguisher-(Fire-Class-F)

Wet Chemical Extinguishers are for use on fire risks involving cooking oils and fats. Used correctly Wet Chemical extinguishers create a layer of foam on the surface of the burning oil or fat, preventing oxygen from fuelling the fire any further. The spray also has a cooling effect.

  • Approved to BSEN3
  • Kitemark, LPCB and MED approved
  • Long Lance Applicator which enables discharge from a safer distance.
  • Squeeze Grip Operation
  • Corrosion Resistant Finish

ABC Dry Powders Extinguishers (Fire Class A, B, C)

ABC Dry Powders Extinguishers (Fire Class A, B, C)

Dry powder Extinguishers are suitable for mixed risk fire environments and especially suitable for flammable liquids and fires involving flammable gases such as propane, methane, hydrogen, natural gas etc. Used correctly Dry powder extinguishers smother fires by forming a barrier between the fuel and the source of oxygen.

  • Approved to BSEN3
  • Kitemark, LPCB and MED approved
  • Multi-Purpose Application
  • Squeeze Grip Operation
  • Corrosion Resistant Finish
Specialist Dry Powder Extinguishers (Fire Rating Class D)
