Bespoke Extinguisher Site Stands & Safety Stands

Bespoke Safety Site StandsOpen spaces such as construction sites, short term events and garage forecourts can be difficult to provide for in terms of safety provisions, especially if you require your extinguishers to be portable or need to relocate them to a new site at a later date. However, if you have employees or members of the public on your site, you have a duty to ensure their safety.

UltraFire offer you the perfect solution for all your fire and health and safety needs; a bespoke mobile extinguisher site stand / safety stand tailor-made to your needs. Site stands are not a new development, but the UltraFire is the first to allow you to choose exactly how yours is configured. Available in a range of bright colours to indicate its purpose – red for fire, green for first aid, yellow for spills kits, blue for PPE – the stand is infinitely variable in its design by letting you choose what kit it contains, what information it displays and any additional alarm features you may need.

Certain information such as fire emergency procedures must be displayed by law. You also need a means of alerting everyone on site in the event of an emergency. Your bespoke stand can display a range of safety information signs and can even include battery powered fire alarms and accident sirens as well as extinguishers and, for example, spill kits to ensure you meet your H&S and legal duties. And being mobile, your stand can simply be wheeled to the next location as your site expands or moves.

P50 service-free extinguisher wins APEA award

Britannia P50 Wins at APEA ShowAPEA, the UK’s Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration, has just awarded their 2014 Health and Safety Performance Award to Britannia for their P50 service-free fire extinguisher during the APEA Live 2014 Exhibition and Conference on the 5th November, where we exhibited the extinguishers jointly with Britannia. Safelincs is key marketing and distribution partner for the Britannia P50 extinguisher.

APEA represents the petroleum industry, including national regulators, local government authorities, oil companies, equipment manufacturers, forecourt operators and suppliers. Their yearly exhibition is visited not only by their members and suppliers but also by specialist sections from various fire brigades, fire service academies and other fire safety organisations.

The Health and Safety Performance Award at the conference was sponsored this year by Franklin Fueling Systems. The award is conferred to the organisation with the best health and safety system or programme.

After receiving the Award, Andy Spence, General Manager at the manufacturer Britannia in Norwich said,“This is a fantastic achievement for our business. This service-free fire extinguisher offers huge safety benefits for this industry and we are pleased that APEA has appreciated that by presenting us with this prestigious award.”

This award for the kitemarked P50 extinguisher is one of many acclamations for the products. The P50 extinguisher has now achieved a strong foothold in the fire safety industry, with customers as diverse as councils, colleges, refineries, schools, insurances, office, farms and other industries moving to the service-free regime of the P50s. Britannia is currently investing further into an increased production line output, for example a new quarter of a million pounds blow-moulding machine for the inner chemical cylinder.

P50 extinguishers do not require visits from service engineer and do not need to be refilled after 5 years.  Instead they are visually inspected once a year by the customer and the check is recorded in the fire safety logbook. When Safelincs installs these extinguishers, our engineers first carry out a site survey and then install and certify the extinguishers. We then train local staff in the visual inspection of the extinguishers and issue a training certificate. We recommend that the customers subsequently notify their insurers about their changed maintenance regime. With budgeting in mind we offer a phase-in programme to ease the changeover from traditional extinguishers to the P50s. This ensures extinguishers are only replaced when they are due for refill or replacement.

Safelincs and Britannia exhibit at the APEA Live 2013 in Coventry

APEA Live 2013 is a trade show for the petroleum and explosives industry (APEA stands for ‘Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration’). Safelincs and Britannia jointly exhibited the P50 service free extinguishers to the refinery and forecourt industry. The P50 is particularly well suited to the harsh refinery and forecourt environment and reduces the cost of compliance dramatically, as traditional yearly fire extinguisher inspections in a safety critical environment require members of staff to accompany the service engineers. The P50, which only requires a visual inspection once a year without any servicing activities cuts out these burdens. The extinguishers are simply visually inspected by regular site safety personnel who receive introductory training when Safelincs install the extinguishers. The extinguishers have a ten year warranty and after ten years the P50 are re-furbished, giving them a further ten year life.

The show was well attended and we met some well known faces and made some new and exciting contacts.

Business Development Manager Stuart Baxter said ‘The atmosphere at this event is really friendly and constructive. Everybody knows each other and I am looking forward to follow up some of the new contacts we made this year’
