Providing an alternative to the traditional red extinguisher, this Black Edition 6ltr P50 Foam Extinguisher features the same 34A, 183B extinguisher rating and offers a contemporary design for the businesses and homeowners looking for a more stylish product. Especially suitable for modern interiors, this service-free fire extinguisher has a guaranteed life of 10 years, and does not require annual servicing. UK manufactured, recyclable and supplied with a 10 year warranty.
Please note: These extinguishers have been manufactured and tested using exactly the same standards and processes as the Red BS EN3 Approved 6ltr P50 Foam. These extinguishers meet the requirements in the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) however, as with any non-red unit, they cannot meet British Standards which stipulates the colour of the cylinder.
Please note: In light of the recent government guidance regarding Coronavirus we are currently not carrying out on-site P50 visual inspection training. Training in how to visually inspect your P50 extinguishers will instead be carried out via a video tutorial which you will receive at point of purchase.

All major insurances have approved P50 fire extinguishers. The relevant sections in the extinguisher servicing standard BS5306-3:2009 state that a competent person needs to maintain all extinguishers and that such a competent person is primarily defined as to have the ability to carry out the procedures as defined by the manufacturer. The manufacturer Britannia Fire clearly states that only a visual inspection is required. When you purchase the Britannia extinguishers from us our engineers will install the extinguishers free of charge and train you how to carry out the yearly inspection. They also ensure that you are suitably covered in accordance to the relevant British Standards.The engineers will also issue you an installation certificate. There is also a video that demonstrates the visual inspection on the website.
Yes, when the engineer installs the extinguisher and gives the training on the yearly service he will leave a magnet with each customer.
We will confirm a date with you for the visit by our certified engineer. The cost for this visit and all the work the engineer does is included in the price you paid for the extinguishers. The engineer will usually bring the extinguishers with him (if not we will send the extinguishers up front). First of all the engineer will check that the extinguisher is adequate for the building and the use. He/she will then install the extinguisher and train you in the simple yearly visual inspection of the extinguisher. You will then receive a certificate to confirm the training and the suitability of the extinguishers installed. You also receive a form to be filled in by you that needs to be sent to your insurance company to inform them about the new maintenance regime. After that all you have to do is carry on with your normal visual inspection required for any extinguishers and the yearly 3 step visual inspection which needs to be recorded in your fire safety logbook. No other activity is required for the next ten years.
The foam P50 extinguishers are perfect for office environments and are well suited for fighting electrical fires (upto the normal voltage in offices which is 240V). They have been tested with 35000V and declared safe by the BSI for use with up to 1000V!
Usually, one P50 foam extinguisher will replace one existing water/foam units plus one CO2 unit, as they are commonly found in offices.
One of the reasons why foam extinguishers are good on electrical fires is that electrical fires often involve liquefying plastics and other plastics/rubbers for which foams are perfect.
The only exception are large server cabinets and computer centres which require specialist fire fighting equipment.
