Over the last few years, we are proud to have installed and commissioned hundreds of water fire extinguishers throughout Cheshire for a wide range of different business premises including warehouses, textile factories, and storage units. The quantity and fire rating of water fire extinguishers will depend on the layout, size, and fire loading of your property but you can be sure that we’ll best advise you in-line with British Standards BS5306-3 & 8-3 & 8. The biggest benefit of water fire extinguishers is the fact they put out a small undeveloped Class A fire rapidly with no environmental impact, with easy clean-up, as a result.
Water has an extremely cooling effect on a fire. Therefore, when it’s directed at the flames in a sweeping motion, it lowers the temperature making it impossible for the fire to burn or escalate. Water fire extinguishers are also commonly paired with CO2 fire extinguishers to cover electrical equipment fires. All fire extinguishers will be fully commissioned, wall or stand-mounted, and finished with photoluminescent ID signage as a fully inclusive service.
Most premises and properties are likely to require water fire extinguishers and they should be located on all floors where Class A fire risks have been identified. All classes of fire risk should be identified during your fire risk assessment, prior to installation. We have a wide range of water fire extinguishers to select from as you can see from our below range.
