Manual fire extinguishing equipment

Whether it is a portable or fixed manual fire fighting system, it is important to use the right type of equipment, which must be clearly and correctly marked, to be confident that it will meet the rigorous requirements necessary for safe and reliable use. Approval by LPCB ensures that manual fire extinguishing equipment meets the requirements of the appropriate standards. As with any fire safety equipment it is recommended that they are correctly installed and maintained by third party approved contractors that have demonstrated their competence.

 

NOTE

In the UK the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order calls for the undertaking of regular fire risk assessements. The selection of independently third party approved fire extinguishing products, supported by third party approved companies that are employed to install, service and maintain items such as portable fire extinguishing appliances, will help reduce risks and demonstrate due diligence. Contractors that install service and maintain these product are approved in accordance with BS 5306.
