What are the guidelines for fire extinguisher installation?
There are, of course, clear British Standards guidelines that Francis Fire Protection Services abide by that are directly in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and that required within your Fire Risk Assessment. Typically fire extinguishers are located within close-proximity to fire escapes/exits/routes, or a defined fire risk(s), and are install via wall mounting, using specific and suitable brackets, and or extinguisher floor stands. Another important guideline is to ensure that all newly installed extinguishers have clear ID signs installed above showing the type of fire they are appropriate for indicated through written text and pictograms.
Why are fire extinguishers important?
Fire extinguishers play a pivotal and essential role in safeguarding your commercial building and people in the event of a fire breaking out. A typical fire protection plan, in-line with a Fire Risk Assessment, would ensure fire extinguishers (lifesaving critical fire safety equipment) are in place, under the duties and responsibilities of a Responsible Person, along with helping to give peace of mind for all involved, as well helping to prevent catastrophic damage to property and even loss of life. Fire extinguishers are first aid firefighting pieces of equipment, essential for putting out small and undeveloped fires.

Whether you require fire extinguisher servicing, replacements or repairs in Cheshire, you’ll be glad to know that FFPS are here to offer a professional and comprehensive service in your area. Main areas that we travel to within Cheshire include Macclesfield, Nantwich, Warrington, and Chester.
How often is fire extinguisher servicing required?
There is an obligation on the ‘Responsible Person’ within all organisations, through The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to get all fire extinguishers serviced annually. The minimum requirement for businesses is servicing at least every 12 months and the next service interval should be planned and agreed in advance, to avoid potential issues and legal pitfalls, and of course to ensure compliance in the overall health and safety at work.
