Insurance companies and the Britannia self-maintenance extinguisher

The P50 Fireworld self-maintenance fire extinguishers from Britannia are an important alternative to conventional extinguishers which require servicing when used in a business environment. The potential cost savings of the self-maintenance alternative are substantial but some businesses are still a little unsure if they are simply allowed to make the change. After all, for decades, fire safety companies have preached about the importance of extinguisher servicing by servicing engineers.

The P50 Fireworld extinguishers break with this tradition and for the first time an extinguisher does not require any servicing, or refill during the 10 year lifespan of the extinguisher. This change of maintenance regime was only possible by Britannia in Norfolk totally re-designing fire extinguishers. The new extinguishers are corrosion-proof, do not age and the extinguishing agent is guaranteed by the chemical manufacturer for 10 years. And, rest assured, the P50 extinguishers fulfill all legal requirements, are certified to BS EN 3 and are accepted by insurance groups.

When a business purchases the P50 Fireworld extinguishers we will send out a service engineer to carry out a site survey to ensure you are fully covered. The engineer will also certifiy your extinguisher provision. He/she will train business representatives how to look after their extinguishers. And at the end the customer will also be handed a form to be sent to their insurance to inform the insurance about the changed maintenance regime. Whilst this is not strictly necessary we regard it as good practice to keep your insurance informed even though some insurances like the Ecclesiastical Insurance Group (the UK’s largest insurance group for the church sector) have already formally endorsed the product and do not require notification.

The self-maintenance extinguishers have been successfully installed in many small and medium businesses, schools, supermarkets, ships and churches where they help to create savings, year after year.

10 year self-maintenance extinguisher accepted by Boat Safety Scheme

Boat owners need to protect themselves and their property from fire just as any other home owner does. The damp conditions sometimes found with boating has always been an issue with regards to which fire extinguisher to install on your boat. Now with the official acceptance of the Fireworld P50 self-maintenance extinguisher by the Boat Safety Scheme this dilemma  finally has an answer.

The Fireworld P50 extinguishers, manufactured by Britannia, are non-corrosive. This makes them ideal for wet and damp conditions. They carry a 10 year guarantee and the tough plastic outer shell and inner Kevlar core, which is the same material as bullet proof vests, makes them durable and light weight.

There is another added benefit of installing the Fireworld fire extinguishers on your boat; they do not need to be serviced by an engineer. There is a yearly check that must be carried out but this can be carried out by yourself.  You will no longer have to arrange for a service engineer to come and service your extinguishers, which can be both costly and inconvenient.
