Fire extinguisher buying guide

The process of replacing or buying new extinguishers can appear quite daunting. However, there is now a new guide available to help you through this process.

Our Fire Extinguisher Buying Guide gives step by step instructions of what to do if you are simply replacing existing extinguishers and what to look out for to ensure that you are meeting legislative requirements. You can also find advice on what you need to do if the building has been altered or the use of the building has changed since you last had extinguishers installed.

The guide gives a simple explanation of fire extinguisher ratings and what type of extinguisher is used to fight particular fires. It also provides some information on the 10 year self-maintenance fire extinguisher, Britannia’s Fireworld extinguisher, to ensure that you choose the best and most cost-efficient extinguisher type for your location.
