How many fire extinguishers does my business need?

To establish how many fire extinguishers your business needs, a qualified fire extinguisher engineer or fire risk assessor should survey all your sites. Or you can refer to the British Code of Practice BS 5306, to find out the minimum requirements.

Regulations also state that anyone responsible for a property or a business with five or more people must have an up-to-date Fire Risk Assessment, that’s been completed by a competent person.

We’re also able to provide you with Class A fire extinguishers in 3L, 6L and 9L options. If you buy your fire extinguishers online though, to be legally compliant and keep your insurance valid, it’s vital that they’re installed by a professionally qualified extinguisher technician, and that appropriate certification is obtained.

How often should my fire extinguishers be tested?

If you’re responsible for fire safety within your business, to meet current fire safety regulations, you need to make sure Fire Extinguisher Servicing is carried out annually.

A straightforward visual inspection should be carried out monthly, where the location, condition, tamper seals and pressure gauges for every extinguisher should be checked and documented.

If your monthly visual inspection identifies any damage or a drop in pressure, then we advise you to book a full Fire Extinguisher Service to make sure your extinguishers are in full working order in the event of a fire.

Here’s a brief overview of some of the most common extinguisher types and the frequency they should be inspected.
