The 4kg Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher is most often used for HGVs and plant vehicles, but it is also an extremely useful piece of kit for small industrial units and workshops. Filled with multi-purpose ABC powder, this unit will protect you against the most common types of fire thanks to its impressive fire rating of 21A 113B C.

Manufactured for Vigil Products as part of their increasing range, the 4kg Dry Powder Extinguisher has the BSI Kitemark, UKCA Approval and CE Mark that you should expect to see on this type of extinguisher to confirm its quality. With a 5-year warranty on top of that, it is also supplied with a wall bracket as standard so you know it includes everything to need to get this installed.

Suitable for HGV and plant vehicles, workshops, small garages, small industrial units, outdoor locations, portable buildings and boats.

Types of fire include Class A (wood, paper, cloth, etc), B (flammable liquids), C (gas - but never put out a gas fire if the gas cannot then be turned off) and safe around live electrical equipment.

Anticipated lifespan with indoor use and proper maintenance - 10 years.

Extinguisher Servicing: It’s likely you will need your new 4kg Powder Fire Extinguisher commissioned and then annually serviced. A legal requirement for businesses and rental properties, it’ll often be recommended by your insurance company too. We offer the option of commissioning only, or with wall fixing, where our local engineer will certify and label the extinguisher before issuing a certificate for your compliance.

Worth remembering - when a refill or test is due, at Fire Protection Online prices, a brand-new powder extinguisher costs less than getting one refilled.

The updated British Standard 5306-8:2012 Selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers – Code of Practice states as follows:

"5.4.3 Use of powder extinguishers: The discharge of a powder extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction of visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardize escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment."

Additionally, when looking to comply with Part 8 of the ADR regulations, ensure you meet the minimum dry powder fire extinguisher provision to suit the size of your vehicle.

If you are not sure what this means, please contact us any time or see our Fire Safety Survey service. Responsible extinguisher service technicians (including ours) may refuse to certify a powder extinguisher that is not suitable for the location.
