Purchasing Fire Extinguishers

When purchasing fire extinguishers always ensure they meet the requirements of the appropriate British Standard. Look for the British Standards kitemark, CE mark and the manufacturing standard BS EN3 to prove correct certification. The BAFE mark is voluntary but offers additional assurance of quality. If the extinguishers are for commercial or public buildings they will need to be commissioned AFTER the delivery. Be careful, as some internet companies offer certification prior to delivery, which is not acceptable, the idea of an extinguisher being commissioned on site is that a qualified technician can assess the risks involved & install the correct extinguishers accordingly.
