How many fire extinguishers do you need to install?

We created a short and simple calculation guide to allow you to work out how many fire extinguishers you need. If you know the floor space of your premises you can easily work out your class A requirement for fire extinguishers. We also added simple pointers helping you to identify further risks, such as Class B requirements, electrical risks and specialist risks such as Class F in kitchens. At the end you can work out what type of extinguisher you need and how many extinguishers you require.

 

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.
