Fire Extinguisher Commissioning
Once installed, your fire extinguishers must be commissioned by law. This means they’ve been thoroughly checked and approved as good for use.
Fire extinguishers are not compliant with UK fire extinguisher legislation until they have been commissioned, even if you have the right types and sizes of extinguisher in the right locations.
Once these checks have taken place by your Fire-Tech Systems engineer, you will receive a certificate verifying that your extinguishers have been commissioned in accordance with UK regulations.
What Are The Types Of Fire Extinguishers?
There are 5 main fire extinguisher types – Water, Foam, Dry Powder, CO2 and Wet Chemical.
To ensure you’re adequately protected, and you meet current fire safety regulations, you need to have the right types of fire extinguisher for your business premises.
There are different ‘classes’ of fire, for which each extinguisher is designed to tackle. These classes are based on which fuels a fire starts with. It’s the presence of these fuels within your business premises that will help determine which types of fire extinguisher you need and in which locations.
As well as the right type of fire extinguisher, you’ll also need the right size and weight of each extinguisher.
