UK fire extinguisher regulations and types of equipment

10,947 businesses have already chosen us, and we want you to choose us too – and we promise we won’t let you down.

As a small business, you have a legal responsibility to ensure that you’re completely compliant with current UK fire extinguisher regulations. By having the appropriate extinguishers and servicing packages, you’ll also be meeting your duty of care to staff and visitors, while mitigating associated health and safety risks and the potential for costly damage to your premises, inventory and machinery.

We promise that if you choose us as your fire extinguisher servicing partner or supplier, we’ll ensure you have the right type of equipment to meet UK fire extinguisher regulations – starting with this useful guide…

  • Water extinguisher (red) – for wood, cloth, paper, coal, plastic and other organic material-based fires.
  • Water spray extinguisher (with additive – red) – use as above but offer a much higher standard of firefighting capacity.
  • Water mist extinguisher (red/white background) – covers A, B, C and F rated fire risks, with certain models also being capable of extinguishing electrical fires of up to 1000 volts when administered from 1m+ away from the source.
  • Multi-purpose powder extinguisher (blue) – suitable for fires caused by gas, organic solids, grease, petrol, oil and paints, but must NOT be used on chip/fat pan fires.
  • Special powders dry powder extinguisher (blue) – for lithium, magnesium, sodium and swarf/powder-form aluminium.
  • AFFF foam extinguisher (cream) – liquids and solids except chip/fat pans, and electrical fires if dielectric tested and approved.

Fire extinguishers and your business

Not only do you need to buy the right type of fire extinguisher for your small business, but there are also several other things you need to be aware of in order to fully understand your legal obligations and the benefits of having well located firefighting equipment in your premises:

  • Fire extinguisher locations

    Because different types of extinguishers have specific purposes, you need to assess each part of your premises, identify the associated risks and select the correct type for the location – this includes reception areas, offices, warehouses, laboratories, kitchens etc.

  • Don’t forget your fire alarm

    Fire extinguishers in isolation are not enough to ensure your regulatory compliance, so please ensure you have a well maintained and fully working fire alarm system too.

  • Use and training

    Make sure that staff are fully trained in the operation of each type of extinguisher, as using them incorrectly can be dangerous.

  • Installation

    We’ll install your extinguishers in the most suitable and convenient place to ensure visibility and accessibility when needed.

  • Fire extinguisher maintenance

    Visually inspect all extinguishers every month and make sure you meet the requirement for small businesses to have equipment serviced twice a year to BS 5306-3 by experts (like us!) to ensure you stay within the relevant laws. We can take care of discharging/refilling and refurbishments too.

  • Guarantee

    Our small business fire extinguishers come with a 3-year guarantee as standard.

  • Peace of mind

    Excellent reassurance in an emergency, extinguishers help you find safe exit in the event of a fire, or stop machinery fire from spreading and causing additional, costly damage.

  • Transparent fees

    We offer great all-round value, and also promise that we’ll never surprise you with additional fees: what we quote is what you pay.
