Request a Fire Extinguisher / Fire Risk Assessment…
If you don’t already have Fire Extinguishers in place or are unsure if you have enough of the right type, then please get in touch with us.
You could be putting you, your staff and your business at risk. Should you be unsure of the full extent of the fire readiness of your business, we can arrange to deliver a full fire risk assessment.
Fire Extinguisher ID Signs
On the wall or extinguisher stand there must be signage provided by law. This sign tells anyone what type it is, what types of fires it can and cannot be used on which in turn keeps you safe.
Fire Extinguisher Trollies
Larger extinguishers can often be heavy, and moving from A to B in the event of a fire can be difficult. Extinguisher trollies give you an advantage in such circumstance, allowing a wheeled unit to push / pull to the required location.
Fire Extinguisher Boxes
A more aesthetically pleasing alternative to hanging on the wall, boxes keep your extinguishers neat, tidy and secure. These are ideal for locations where security and the weather is an issue.
Fire Extinguisher Stands
If you would prefer that your extinguishers are not mounted on the wall or cannot be for whatever reason then stands are ideal. They are produced in plastic and all the way to stainless steel where aesthetics are important to you.
