Fire safety is an important consideration in any building, and having the right fire safety equipment is essential. If a fire breaks out, you need to know that you and your employees can respond appropriately, containing or extinguishing the fire where appropriate and safely evacuating themselves and customers/members of the public if necessary.
This can be done safely, quickly and reliably with appropriate fire safety equipment.
All businesses, landlords and building managers have a legal responsibility to take steps to prevent fires on their premises. For this reason, Fire Safety Equipment is an investment in lives and property.
Fire extinguishers, safety signage and door closers can all help to ensure that a fire can be quickly contained and that everyone in the building has a safe way to evacuate. However, finding the right fire safety equipment can be a challenge. Local stores are often limited in terms of selection, and it can be hard to find the right product for your needs. Fire safety equipment can also be expensive, making it difficult to budget for.

There is a large variety of fire safety equipment on the market, and making sense of what you need can sometimes be tricky. Individual business requirements depend entirely on what kind of business you are operating and the type of premises you operate within.
Fire Safety Signage - Fire safety signs warn about potential dangers such as the increased risk of an electrical fire or the presence of particularly flammable materials Instructions on emergency behaviour, like directions toward alarm or extinguisher points, showing the way to the nearest emergency exit or even how to open a door quickly (push bar to open, for example)
Promoting good general behaviour, like instructing personnel to keep doors and walkways obstruction-free.
Fire Extinguishers - The most common and well-known type of Fire Safety Equipment. The kind of fire extinguishers that you keep on-site should be appropriate to the environment. If you are running a professional kitchen and there is a risk of an oil-based fire, you need an extinguisher that is not water-based for Class A Fires. Likewise, if there is a risk of an electrical fire, your extinguisher should be designed to deal with it.
Automatic Fire Extinguishers are also available, which are particularly well suited to unmanned areas such as engine rooms.
Remember to keep an adequate number of extinguishers for the size of your rooms/site/machinery.
Fire doors, closers and locks - Fire doors are specifically engineered to contain or slow the spread of a fire and/or smoke and are a legal requirement in most commercial and industrial environments.
Automatic closers are part of this requirement, preventing fire doors from being left open accidentally.
