Arguably the second most famous fire safety and firefighting tool – only behind the fire engine – fire extinguishers have been assisting in neutralising small and controllable fires since 1723. The world renowned canisters can be found in just about any building you enter. Fire extinguishers are a legal requirement for all commercial buildings here in the UK and should ideally be stocked appropriately for a number of different types of fire that may occur in a specific place.
A fire extinguisher can grant peace of mind in the workplace or home. The presence of the right type of extinguisher can leave you assured that you are prepared for any unfortunate possibilities that may appear.
The European standard EN3 dictates that portable fire extinguishers in the UK and the European Union on the whole, must meet specified, legal requirements.
