You’ll find a wide range of Fire Extinguishers to choose from in our online catalogue. Employers or building owners are legally obligated to ensure fire safety standards are met, so it’s important to make the right choices. According to the standard BS EN 3, fire extinguishers in the UK – and across Europe – are red RAL 3000, and a band or circle of a second colour covering between 5% to 10% of the surface area of the extinguisher indicates the contents.
The UK recognises six fire classes:
Class A fires involve organic solids such as paper and wood.
Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids, including petrol, grease, and oil.
Class C fires involve flammable gases.
Class D fires involve combustible metals.
Class E fires involve electrical appliances.
Class F fires involve cooking fat and oil.
