Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tricky to review Needed a pair of these to get the BSS cert on my boat. They were what the chap who does it recommended & were reasonably priced. Obviously being what they are I'm unable to say much about their performance or reliability & hopefully I'll never have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in case Bought for the house,hoping I never have to use it but it covers 4 classes of fire. I am also hoping the performance & reliability are 5 star because it should not be on sale if they are not.

Are Fire Extinguishers sold pre-commissioned?

If I were to purchase a fire extinguisher from your website or stores, would it already be commissioned for use or would I need to source a 3rd party? It will be stored/used in a van.
Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question. According to the guidance issued in BS 5306 Part 3 and Part 8, portable fire extinguishers should be commissioned and installed by a trained, competent person prior to being placed into service. They are not sold with pre-commissioning certification at point of sale as this is considered irresponsible practice. I trust this helps.

what sort of extinguisher would I need just for electrics as I’m a barber and i need it for my business

If I bought this does it come with a certificate
Asked by: Hollowman23
Thank you for your question. The correct extinguisher to cover Electrical risk is either a CO2 extinguisher, or a Powder extinguisher. However please note that Powder extinguishers can cause visibility problems when used indoors, and the powder particles can sometimes cause breathing difficulties if inhaled. We would strongly recommend a Fire Risk Assessment to be carried out by a trained, competent and qualified person (in accordance with BS 5306 Part 3 & Part 8). They will be able to advise you how many extinguishers you need, and where to place them in the shop. Firechief Extinguishers come with EN3 Certification and CE Approval as well as other certification on many models. Please be aware that a Commissioning/Installation certificate is not supplied with the units - this is issued by the certified installer. I trust this helps?

Checks

When you say it is best to be inspected yearly, by who? Can I do this myself, is it just a visual inspection or something more? Mine is for a catering trailer.
Asked by: SKSJK
Thank you for your question. We recommend that Fire Extinguishers are inspected and serviced according to the recommendations set out in British Standard BS 5306 Part 3.

Fire types

I know what an electrical fire is, but what are types A,B & C? I want this in the kitchen. Thank you
Asked by: GB05
Thank you for your question. Class A Fires include common types of burning solid material such as wood, paper and textiles. Class B relates to burning liquids, such as petrol, solvents and paints. Class C relates to flammable gases such as butane, natural gas and propane for example. This powder extinguisher could be suitable for use in a kitchen, however if you intend to cook using the deep-frying method, then a Fire Blanket may be a more suitable option.
