This chrome 1kg powder extinguisher comes with the bracket included for easy fitting onto a wall where it can be quickly accessed or on a vehicle for fast retrieval for quick use. As with all the extinguishers we sell you can get this unit serviced and refilled with no special tools by any UK service company so that you know it will operate flawlessly when you have to use it.


Dry powder fire extinguishers are a good multi-purpose model to keep around just about anywhere for most situations when fire risks from various sources exist. Though powder extinguishers are capable of putting out fires involving organic materials and electrical equipment they are especially suited for flammable liquids and gases.
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."
 
Additionally, when looking to comply with Part 8 of the ADR regulations, ensure you meet the minimum dry powder fire extinguisher provision to suit the size of your vehicle.

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.
