Other than very specific applications in Aerospace, Military and Shipping Halon Extinguishers are banned in the UK and throughout most of the World. It is illegal to own a charged Halon extinguisher in the UK unless you have one of these exemptions. Disposal is by regulated Companies who reclaim the Halon.
If you wish to dispose of a Halon extinguisher you should contact your local Environmental Services.
Brief instructions on how to use the extinguisher are printed on the canister. Our extinguishers are high quality and built to last, indeed they can last for up to 10 years. However, this will only happen if their life is prolonged by adequate annual service and maintenance, which is a formal regulatory requirement.
Apart from our factory sealed and disposable fire extinguishers all of the extinguishers we supply can be refilled and where appropriate repressurised. Refilling should only be undertaken by a competent person trained or experienced in Fire Extinguisher Maintenance and Servicing.
We supply refills, cartridges, spare parts and extinguisher consumables for this purpose.

If you are a business your Fire Risk Assessment will indicate the type(s) of extinguisher(s) you require. You can also call our Customer Support line on 01724 281044 for help but the law limits us from making specific recommendations without conducting a Site Survey.
Yes, our extinguishers are factory filled and pressurised being supplied with a suitable bracket, fixings and instructions for wall or vehicle mounting. However, please note that under BS5306:3/2009 it is required that all fire extinguishers should be subject to a commissioning process on site immediately prior to installation. This work must be undertaken by a competent person.
