What fire extinguishers do I need?

Essentially this will vary and be dependent on the fire risks present at a particular premises. Your fire risk assessment should give guidance on the number and type of fire extinguishers that you require for that particular premises.

We refer to BS5306 which gives guidance on the types of extinguishers required for particular fire risks and the calculations to determine how many extinguishers are required.

Can I buy fire extinguishers online?

Yes, you can buy virtually anything online and the prices may seem tempting however there are some drawbacks.

  • You will have to pay the full amount for the extinguishers you order upfront.
  • You will still need to get the extinguishers commissioned by a fire extinguisher company. If an extinguisher is faulty or has been damaged in transit you will have to send it back and get a replacement. This will then entail another commissioning visit at additional expense.
  • You may have to wall mount the extinguishers and attach the signage yourself.
  • You may be buying the wrong types of extinguishers meaning that you may then have to purchase the correct extinguishers at additional expense. People often buy powder extinguishers online thinking it is a cheap option because they can use a single extinguisher on Class A, B, C and electrical fires but don’t realise that they should not generally be specified for indoor use.
  • The extinguishers that you are buying may not be CE marked, Kitemarked or in the case of CO2 extinguishers may be refurbished units which are already 10 years old.
  • You will have to dispose of all the packaging material yourself which may include a wooden pallet.
