As with all of this designer range, our chrome 6kg powder extinguisher is, in fact, made from highly polished stainless steel. This makes it suitable for marine use as, unlike standard extinguishers that are made from mild steel, it will not corrode. Also, it is filled with a high-grade multi-purpose powder that fights any fire except for fires involving flammable metals. This extinguisher range is very popular with both architects and designers.
 
Suitable for designer-look premises with many many different fire risks or where corrosive atmosphere is present
 
Types of fire include Class A (wood, paper, cloth, etc), B (flammable liquids), C (gas - but never put out a gas fire if the gas cannot then be turned off) and safe around live electrical equipment

Special note although our chrome extinguishers are made alongside BS EN3 Kitemarked ones and with the same components, as they are not painted red, they cannot display a Kitemark or BAFE approval

The updated British Standard 5306-8:2012 Selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers – Code of Practice states as follows.

"5.4.3 Use of powder extinguishers The discharge of a powder extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction of visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardize escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment."

If you are not sure what this means, please contact us any time or see our Fire Safety Survey service. Responsible extinguisher service technicians (including ours) may refuse to certify a powder extinguisher that is not suitable for the location.
