Once a fire has broken out within your premises it is of paramount importance to prevent it spreading in order to reduce costs and damages that your business will incur. Our sophisticated fire suppression services will ensure that any incident is contained or extinguished prior to emergency services arriving at your property.
As part of our fire suppression services we offer a comprehensive range of fire extinguishers fit for use in both industrial and commercial settings. Our range of extinguishers were manufactured in line with the latest BSEN3 standards and includes water, foam, powder and carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Once you’ve chosen the right fire extinguisher for your organisation SECOM’s trained experts will handle everything from design and installation right through to maintenance.
Here at SECOM we uphold the highest standards when it comes to fire safety which is why we are fully registered as a BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) Scheme SP203 company. This gives us the ability to design, install, commission, handover and maintain fire safety systems nationwide in the UK.
SECOM are members of the British Fire Consortium and each of our engineers are trained to national standards for the maintenance and servicing of portable extinguishers. This involves extinguishers being refilled at regular intervals and pressure tested to ensure they are available to use any time an incident occurs.
Red & Cream
Red and cream banded extinguishers contain water and foam, they tend to be used for fires caused by organic materials including fabrics, textiles, coal, wood, cardboard and paper. They should not be used to combat fires caused by flammable gases or liquids.
Blue extinguishers are composed of powder, they are typically used for fires caused by flammable metal. Please note blue extinguishers should not be used in enclosed spaces as the dry powder in the extinguisher can easily be inhaled.
Black banded extinguishers contain Carbon Dioxide (CO2). They are mainly deployed for electrical fire risks, you will often find them in computer server rooms. CO2 extinguishers work by suffocating fires and displacing the oxygen they need to continue burning.
