What are you looking for in a Fire Extinguisher?

Are you looking for a fire extinguisher that is cost-effective, eco-friendly, and easy to maintain? If so, you might want to consider the P50 fire extinguisher, a revolutionary composite fire extinguisher that offers many benefits over traditional steel extinguishers.

What is the P50 fire extinguisher?

The P50 fire extinguisher is made of composite materials that are lightweight, corrosion-free, and incredibly durable. It has a 20-year life cycle and a 10-year operational corrosion guarantee. It also comes with a 10-year manufacturing faults and workmanship guarantee.

The P50 fire extinguisher is fully accredited by BSI Kitemark, EN3, PED, and MED standards. It is also CE marked and approved by the British Standards Institution.

How does the P50 fire extinguisher save you money and time?

One of the main advantages of the P50 fire extinguisher is that it does not require an annual service from an external contractor. Instead, it only requires a simple visual inspection each year by the owner or a trained staff member. This can be done with a magnet that checks the pressure indicators on the extinguisher.

Another benefit of the P50 fire extinguisher is that it does not need a discharge and refill after 5 years, as traditional steel extinguishers do. This means that you can avoid the hassle and cost of disposing of the old contents and refilling the extinguisher with new ones.

Furthermore, the P50 fire extinguisher can reduce the number of fire extinguishers needed on your site, as it can cover multiple classes of fire with one unit. This can save you space and money on purchasing and installing additional extinguishers.

By switching to the P50 fire extinguisher, you could see substantial cost savings over its 10-year lifespan.

How does the P50 fire extinguisher help the environment?

The P50 fire extinguisher is also an eco-friendly choice, as it reduces waste and carbon emissions. Unlike steel extinguishers, which are often scrapped after 10 years, the P50 fire extinguisher can last for 20 years. This means that fewer resources are used to produce and transport new units.

The P50 fire extinguisher also uses eco-foam as its main agent, which is biodegradable and non-toxic. This means that it does not harm the environment or wildlife in case of accidental discharge and is PFAS free.

Where can you buy the P50 fire extinguisher?

If you are interested in purchasing the P50 fire extinguisher for your home or business, you can find various suppliers online or in your local area. For example.

You can contact Britannia Fire, the manufacturer of the P50 fire extinguisher, to find out more about their products and services. They have over 10 years of experience in designing and producing composite fire extinguishers and can provide you with expert advice and support.
