When people think of fire extinguishers they tend to think of something fixed to a wall or in a corner. However, for some working environments such as construction sites, this simply isn’t practical.
A fire extinguisher trolley is ideal to move the extinguishers between locations and in this article, we are going to help you find the answer to the question “which double fire extinguisher trolley is right for me?”
Why A Double?
Double fire extinguisher trolleys are ideal if you are on a site where you are likely to be dealing with more than one type of fire and therefore need to have the appropriate fire prevention tool to hand.
As well as transporting the extinguishers a double fire extinguisher trolley can also transport a fire bucket, giving you additional emergency options as necessary.
There are different types of trolley appropriate to different needs.
For example, construction sites can get very dusty and debris can get swept around everywhere. Therefore having a cabinet trolley is ideal as you can have your extinguisher and other fire safety equipment stored and in the best possible condition while at the same time making them easy to access.
Another great example is the Howler extinguisher trolley. This is designed with a pre-drilled backboard.
Why is this important? For the simple reason, you can install a fire alarm onto the trolley, alerting people nearby of a fire and getting them to assemble at a fire safety point at an outdoor or temporary construction site where it may not be possible to have a fixed alarm.
