Q. Should a powder extinguisher be inverted regularly to avoid the powder sticking in the bottom?
Inverting the cylinder of a powder extinguisher is part of the service procedure for cartridge operated powder extinguishers and isn’t required for stored pressure powder extinguishers by the British Standard BS 5306-3:2009. However it is good practice to perform this action during a basic service on stored pressure extinguishers as it only takes a moment and ensured that the contents are not compacted.
Q. Do your extinguishers come fully serviced and ready to use on delivery?
All our portable fire extinguishers are supplied fully charged and ready for use. Wheeled fire extinguishers with large capacity might require initial filling and charging. The product listing will explain this. There are options on the website if you are required to have your extinguishers commissioned on-site and we also offer a full installation service. These additional services will require an engineer to visit your site to carry out the work required.
Q. What height should extinguishers be installed at?
The height at which to install extinguishers depends on the total weight of that particular extinguisher. If the weight of the extinguisher is less than 4kg, the top of the handle should be 1.5m above ground level when installed. If the mass weight is more than 4kg, the top of the handle should be 1.0m above ground level. When there is a combination of the two, both can be set at the height of the heaviest extinguisher.
Q. Can I request fire extinguisher certification?
Extinguisher certification is included in the extinguisher commissioning charge. You can add this on to your order either online or over the telephone. We also offer nationwide extinguisher servicing.
Q. Are photoluminescent wall signs included in the price of the extinguisher installation?
No, you need to add them to your order.
