To emphasise the advantages of the P50 service free extinguishers to end users, Safelincs created a short promotional video demonstrating the benefits and cost savings of the extinguisher.
The P50 extinguishers:
- Do not require external service engineers. A simple annual visual inspection by the end user is sufficient
- Do not require a refill after five years, as the firefighting chemicals are guaranteed for ten years
- Can even be refurbished after ten years to give another ten year life
These extinguisher also help to reduce your carbon footprint, save time and even space, as the superior ratings mean that less P50 units are required to cover a building when compared to traditional extinguishers.
No organisation can skimp on the number of fire extinguishers it provides in its buildings, but a look at the associated costs reveals that the expensive element is not their purchasing but the requirement to have them serviced annually.
There is now an extinguisher that requires only an annual check which can quickly and easily be carried out by a member of staff. The Britannia P50 extinguisher will massively cut maintenance bills with achievable savings of up to £350 per extinguisher* over a ten year period.
Harry Dewick-Eisele, managing director of Safelincs who supply the extinguishers, explains, “Our initial site survey, delivery and installation are included in the price. At the same time we will demonstrate to local staff how to undertake the annual check. And to back it up we have a short video available on our web site that runs through the checking procedure.”
The extinguishers also stand out from others on the market in that they are made from plastic, reinforced with the material from which bullet proof vests are made. The only metal elements are brass which means they will not rust or corrode, making them ideal for outdoor areas and anywhere that is subject to moisture.
The Britannia P50 is guaranteed for ten years after which it can be refurbished and used for a further ten service-free years. It is available in both foam and powder versions. The extinguishers carry the BSI Kitemark to BS EN3, the British and European standard for fire extinguishers, and are accepted by insurance companies.
* The standard extinguisher costs are based on purchasing and maintaining a 9kg powder fire extinguisher for a period of 10 years.
Waterways World, Britain’s best selling canal and river magazine features both the Britannia P50 Self-Maintenance fire extinguishers and the UltraFire Water Mist fire extinguishers in the Boats & Pieces section of their April edition.
Boats & Pieces features new products and ideas that are useful for boat owners. The article goes on to say that the Britannia extinguishers meet all the Boat Safety Scheme requirements and that the self-inspection possibility of these extinguishers can save boat owners over £300.
The second range of extinguishers reviewed, the Water Mist extinguishers use a brand new technology which makes them suitable to tackle both A and B rated fires (solids and liquids). Whilst currently only certified for A risks, the water mist extinguishers also work very well on B class fires such as burning petrol or diesel. The extinguishers even extinguish gas fires and are safe on electrical risks.
The portable water mist extinguishers are ideal for areas where space is limited, such as boat kitchens and cabins, as there is no risk of inhalation of extinguishing medium. Small boat cabins make the use of traditional powder extinguishers unthinkable, as the fine powder would be inhaled.
