Double pressure indicators

The addition of a second indicator gauge is unique to P50 fire extinguishers. A second indicator provides complete reassurance by allowing users to verify each gauge against the other. This exclusive feature is just one of a number of innovations used in the construction of the P50 extinguisher that makes it one of the most reliable extinguishers on the market.

Damage and UV resistant shell

The plastic outer shell of P50 extinguishers is UV resistant and corrosion-proof. This means the P50 is protected against scratching, chipping or rusting, eliminating some of the most common reasons for standard extinguishers to be condemned. The unique materials used also ensure the weight of the extinguisher is kept to a minimum.

Protective plastic base

The base of the extinguisher is protected by a colour coded plastic 'boot'. Foam and powder extinguishers feature a black protective boot, whereas the wet chemical extinguisher features a yellow base to enhance it's visibility. The bases also house the small concealed magnet which is used to verify the pressure gauges are functioning during inspection.

Hopefully will never be used! The extinguishers seem fine and are easy to check annually. Haven''t actually used them yet, and hopefully won''t need to. The only downside was this it took three weeks for an engineer to install them and provide initial training.

Is a magnet provided with the extinguisher?


Yes, when the engineer installs the extinguisher and gives the training on the yearly service he will leave a magnet with each customer.


What happens after I place the order?


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.


Will the P50 extinguishers be suitable in offices with electrical equipment? Or do I still need traditional CO2 extinguishers?


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.
