This page aims to provide
the reader with a brief overview of our fire extinguisher site-surveys.
As mentioned in the About Us section in
greater detail, our BS EN ISO 9001 certification certifies that we advise in accordance with
the requirements of BAFE schemes SP101
and ST104 for the “sale and servicing of
fire extinguishers”, and hence also with
BS 5306-3 and BS 5306-8.
This latter standard is the British Standard that lays down the code of
practice used for the Selection and Positioning of Portable Fire
The standard specifies the levels and types of fire extinguishers
required to adequately cover any given site. More complete details on the
standard can be found here.
When we undertake a fire extinguisher site-survey, we provide
recommendations as to the
levels of appropriate cover as set out in the standard. Furthermore, such
a survey is now also required when undertaking the basic service of fire
extinguishers in accordance with
also normally advise on ensuring compliance with the
Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 along with any
other applicable legislation.
If there are any such
recommendations, you may arrange for these very
simply by simply signing and returning to us the letter we send. This may be
returned to us by fax to speed the process. This is very important - click
