Fire Extinguisher Provision & Servicing in London


Keeping you and your London-based business fully protected from fire also means being able to take control when it really matters – that usually means using fire extinguishers.

Being able to tackle and control small fires effectively and efficiently with appropriate fire extinguishers can make all the difference between a fire being a minor inconvenience and it leading to significant stock damage, a reduced ability to trade, and injuries to your staff and customers.

We use our specialist knowledge to install the correct fire extinguishers, maintain and test your existing fire extinguishers, and carry out fire extinguisher training for you and your team.

Fire Extinguisher Regulations

The rules surrounding fire extinguisher use and placement can be complicated, here we will help you understand how the law applies to you, what your choices are when it comes to fire extinguishers, and how we can use our knowledge and experience to help you stay in control.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which governs fire safety in commercial premises talks about fire extinguisher provision and training. As a minimum, you need to ensure that you have the appropriate fire extinguishers available, together with instructions for their use. It’s also essential that nominated members of staff are trained to use them properly.

Types of Fire Extinguisher

It’s also important to know what kind of extinguishers you need, how many are required, and where they should be situated.

As always, the exact nature of your business and your premises will dictate what kind of extinguishers you need, but the following types of colour-coded fire extinguishers are generally available:

  • Red colour block: Water Fire Extinguisher – suitable only for solid materials such as paper, wood and textiles
  • Black: Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers – effective against electrical fires
  • Cream: Foam Fire Extinguishers – useful against solid material fires and flammable liquids
  • Blue: Powder Fire Extinguishers – can be used on most types of fire
  • Yellow: Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers – ideal for cooking fires that may involve burning oil and fat
