The Importance of Extinguisher Maintenance

Fire Extinguishers

Fire Extinguishers Types

Our chosen fire extinguisher engineers are BAFE qualified and carry out fire extinguisher work for a range of organisations ranging from large organisations to SMEs. Whatever the type of environment our fire safety consultants and fire extinguisher engineers ensure that fire extinguishers match the environment’s requirements for type, numbers and positioning. A quick course in the types of fire extinguishers can be found here.

Fire Classification

Fire extinguishers help extinguish different classes of fire from A-F. Fire classification systems have been developed to aid the extinction process, detailing which extinguishing agents are the most appropriate for the various types of fire.

The fire triangle theory tells us that, in order for a fire to ignite and develop, there must be three elements present: a heat source, oxygen and fuel. It is the fuel element that dictates fire type, as the fire classes are characterised by the burning material involved.

There are currently no universal guidelines for fire classification, however in the UK Trafalgar follow the British Standard EN-3 (Classification of Fires), which uses five broad fire classes:

  • Class A fires – involve organic solids such as paper and wood.
  • Class B fires – involve flammable or combustible liquids.
  • Class C fires – involve flammable gases.
  • Class D fires – involve combustible metals.
  • Class F fires – involve cooking fat and oil.

Repairs, replacement, and upgrading to non-compliant fire doors & fire exit doors are conducted using fully certified material from approved manufacturers.

All services are performed in accordance with the relevant British Codes of Practice by fully trained and qualified technicians who are all additionally DBS registered.

Emergency Lighting Facts

Emergency lighting can be ‘maintained’: on all the time, or ‘non-maintained’: normally off and only operational when the normal lighting fails.

Emergency lights should operate for one, two or three hours depending on the application; but in practice most emergency lights are operational for three hours. Emergency lights are also useful in providing lighting during a power failure in addition to other emergency situations.
