Our Fire Safety Guide Fire Safety starts with reducing risk and avoiding the need to use a fire extinguisher in the first place.
The second line in fire safety is to be prepared. In the home you should ensure that you know how to exit the house safely. Additionally you should store a fire extinguisher or fire blanket in key areas of the house. These areas are usually near the kitchen or in an easily accessible place.
We stock a full range of fire extinguishers all suitable for your home, workplace and vehicle. We have powder extinguishers, foam extinguishers and water extinguishers in a range of sizes and colours.
All of our fire extinguishers are EN3, MED and BSI Kitemark approved making them perfect for your fire safety needs. Important note Fire Safety products should be chosen after a risk assessment from a responsible person.
The best people to do a fire risk assessment are a fire warden, site manager or anyone who has fire safety knowledge or training.
