Fire Extinguishers Additional Information

Where to place Fire extinguishers

Fire extinguishers need to be placed where they can be seen at all times and accessed quickly, with ease. Ideally this should be on an escape route that is either near a fire exit door or near an outside door of any communal areas. It is also advisable to fix a fire extinguisher on a wall near any potential fire hazard. When the fire extinguisher is fixed correctly to the wall it should be at a height easy enough to reach when needed to be called upon. When you are choosing a location to place a fire extinguisher you should avoid placing above cookers, heaters or anywhere where extreme temperatures may occur. 

Maintenance of Fire Extinguishers

Instructions are supplied by the manufacturer on how to keep your fire extinguisher in good order. If however, you have to use your extinguisher you should follow the manufacturers instructions about re-charging the fire extinguisher or seek advise from ourselves. In any case you should seek a professional such as Discount Fire Extinguishers contractors to service any fire extinguishers annually so that they are fully functional in the event of an emergency.

Number of Fire Extinguishers Required

Once you complete a risk assesment of your property, you can contact your local Fire Service Officer who will be happy to advise you about the requirement of fire extinguishers for your particular circumstances.
