Breeze Fire Protection – Experts in fire extinguishers London
The fire extinguisher has its heritage rooted in England (although the exact location is not thought to be London, which serves as the homeland to many a new invention) and actually dates back to 1723, the first invented by Ambrose Godfrey (chemist).
Though it wasn’t until 1818 that the fire protection device was made with compressed air which then via a number of re-developments, the most prevalent design became based upon a cartridge mechanism which is now the norm.
Fire legislation in London puts measures in place to prevent such devises falling into disrepair over time, posing a real health and safety threat. Extinguishers after all are prone to “exploding when corroded or damaged, and have been known to cause serious injury and even death.” and thus need servicing.
British Standard 5306-3:2000 calls for regular visual inspections of all portable fire extinguishers by either an internal rep or external service provider, such as Breeze Fire Protection. Annual servicing is typically the norm, by a trained fire engineer who should complete standard checks. Such checks are recorded and kept for auditing purposes by a named and appointed individual. Failure to discharge or rupturing in high volume areas of traffic such as most public places which welcome members of the public on to its premises is why such legislation exists.
