The Britannia P50 maintenance free extinguishers are now also MED (Marine Equipment Directive) approved and can be used on oil installations, rigs and ships. The extinguishers are already kitemarked, Boat Safety scheme approved and CE marked and had a very successful introduction. Now the MED approval opens an entirely new market.
The P50 range are robust and non-corrosive, making them an ideal extinguisher to install on boats and ships. Gaining the MED approval will give buyers the confidence to install this range of extinguishers. They are guaranteed for 10 years and do not require the usual discharge and refill after 5 years. No engineer visits, no consumables and no replacement components are needed for the entire lifetime of the extinguishers. Being maintenance free the P50 extinguisher will save you money and time. A quick annual visual check can be carried out by members of your staff after the initial installation and a short instruction session, which is included in the price, meaning you can verify yourself that your extinguishers are in working order no matter where you are.
