Good Practice and BS Design Recommendations
In order to comply with good practice, firefighting equipment installations should comply with BS5306 (Fire extinguishing installations and equipment on premises – Part 8: Selection and installation of portable fire extinguishers – Code of practice).
It should not be necessary to travel more than 30 metres to reach the nearest Class ‘A’ rated appliance. Class ‘A’ fire risks are present in most premises and includes carbonaceous materials such as wood, paper and textiles. Extinguishers with a Class ‘A’ fire rating include water, foam and dry powder.
Class ‘A’ fire extinguishers should be positioned at storey exits and on landings at upper floor levels.
Additional appropriate fire extinguishers should be proved to cover perceived ‘Higher Risk’ areas such as kitchens and plant rooms.
It is important that all equipment locations are documented and numbered to ensure that extinguishers remain in the correct location. A monthly inspection must be carried out to ensure that appliances are correctly positioned in all locations with tamper seals intact and pressure gauges (where fitted) registering ‘in the green’.
