This page aims to provide the reader with a brief overview of our products and service relating to fire extinguishers.


Fire extinguishers are an essential first step in fighting fires. According to the Fire Extinguisher Survey by FETA (now the FIA) and IFEDA (requires Adobe® Acrobat® Reader), 80% of all fires are successfully extinguished by fire extinguishers.

However, in order to be effective, sites must be properly surveyed to ensure that cover is adequate, suitable and sufficient. BS 5306-8 is the code of practice used for the Selection and Positioning of Portable Fire Extinguishers.

Once the cover is there, it is also vital that it is properly maintained.  In this case, BS 5306-3 is the main standard applicable to the servicing of portable fire extinguishers.
