The 6kg Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher, thanks to its multi-purpose properties making it the ideal choice for the most frequent causes of fire, is one of the most popular choices. Suitable for temperatures as low as -20°C, it is the ideal choice for outdoor locations, such as campsites, farms, building sites and HGVs, and is also commonly found in workshops, garages and industrial units. Plus, with the fire rating of 27A 144B C, your fire inspector will be impressed.

Featuring the BSI Kitemark, UKCA Approval, CE Marked and with a 5-year warranty, you can be sure this 6kg Dry Powder Extinguisher is up to the job of protecting lives and property. With a wall mounting bracket included as standard, this is part of the expanding range manufactured for Vigil Products.

Suitable for building sites, workshops, industrial units, lorry trailers, campsites, farms, boats and anywhere storing flammable liquid.

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 6kg 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.
