Huge range of portable fire extinguishers manufactured in accordance with BS EN3 & bearing the BSI Kitemark.
Our range of portable fire extinguishers is manufactured in accordance with BS EN3 and bears the BSI Kitemark.
BS EN3 is the new European Standard covering portable extinguishers. This new standard now replaces the former BS 5423:1987, which was withdrawn by the BSI on 1st January 1997. Only one standard now applies and that is BS EN3:1996.
The UK has had, until now, a unique colour coding system to identify the various extinguishing agents. The new standard requires that a minimum of 95% of the extinguisher body must now be in red. This represents a dramatic visual change in the extinguishers we have all become familiar with. In order to maintain some identity, the new standard allows colour-coded zones of up to 5% of the surface area of the extinguisher within the operating instructions label.
