New fire extinguisher cuts safety costs

26 March 2013

A new service-free fire extinguisher, the Britannia P50 Fireworld, could cut organisations’ maintenance bills. Savings of up to £350 per extinguisher over a ten year period can be achieved, the company says.

No organisation can skimp on the number of fire extinguishers it provides in its buildings, but a look at the associated costs reveals that the expensive element is not their purchasing but the requirement to have them serviced annually. The Britannia P50 Fireworld requires only an annual check which can quickly and easily be carried out by a member of staff.

Harry Dewick-Eisele, managing director of Safelincs who supply the extinguishers explains, “Our initial site survey, delivery and installation are included in the price. At the same time we will demonstrate to local staff how to undertake the annual check. And to back it up we have a short video available on our web site that runs through the checking procedure.”

The extinguishers also stand out from others on the market in that they are made from plastic, reinforced with the material from which bullet proof vests are made. This means they will not rust or corrode making them ideal for outdoor areas and anywhere that is subject to moisture such as swimming pools, warehouses, building sites and so forth.

The Britannia P50 Fireworld is guaranteed for ten years after which it can be refurbished and used for a further ten service-free years. (It does not need refilling after five years like most extinguishers). It is available in both foam and powder versions. The extinguishers carry the BSI Kitemark to BS EN3, the British and European standard for fire extinguishers, and are accepted by insurance companies.
