With an Antique Copper 6kg Powder Extinguisher, you’re ready to tackle many types of fire and ensure your premises remain looking as stylish as always. Being made from stainless steel with an antique brushed copper finish means it will not corrode, and filled with a high-grade multi-purpose powder means it is versatile also.

Suitable for modern bars, restaurants, hotels, shops and offices.

Types of fire include Class A (wood, paper, cloth, etc), Class B (flammable liquids), Class C (gas – but never put out a gas fire if the gas cannot be turned off), and is safe around live electrical equipment.

Anticipated lifespan with indoor use and proper maintenance - 10 years.

Special note although the Antique Copper 6kg Powder Extinguisher is 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.
