FAQs (2)
Q. My building insurance states that the extinguishers installed need to be checked yearly by a competent person. Have the self-maintenance extinguishers been passed by insurance companies?

All major insurances have approved P50 fire extinguishers as servicing free fire extinguishers. The relevant sections in the extinguisher servicing standard BS5306-3:2009 state that a competent person needs to maintain all extinguishers and that such a competent person is primarily defined as to have the ability to carry out the procedures as defined by the manufacturer. The manufacturer Britannia Fire clearly states that only a visual inspection is required.

Q. Will the P50 extinguishers be suitable in offices with electrical equipment? Or do I still need traditional CO2 extinguishers?

The P50 foam extinguishers are perfect for office environments and are well suited for fighting electrical fires (upto the normal voltage in offices which is 240V). They have been tested with 35000V and declared save by the BSI for use with up to 1000V!
Usually, one P50 foam will replace one existing water/foam units plus one CO2 unit, as they are commonly found in offices.
One of the reasons why foams are good on electrical fires is that electrical fires often involve liquefying plastics and other plastics/rubbers for which foams are perfect.
The only exception are large server cabinets and computer centres which require specialist fire fighting equipment.

not able to review as unused, and I hope I never have to use it!!! It does look an attractive proposition compared to having to service standard extinguishers
