BWoFs are the responsibility of building owners. They must be issued and signed, plus they must be displayed publicly in the building to demonstrate to those using the building that it meets the required standard. BWoFs must be renewed once a year.

Wherever possible and safe to do so, fires should be extinguished as soon as possible. Handheld fire fighting equipment gives you the opportunity to do this, as this equipment will be your first line of defence. You can use equipment like fire extinguishers and fire hose reels to protect the people using your building as well as the building itself and any assets inside or close to the building.

Active and passive fire protection solutions are both important as both play different roles. An active fire protection solution involves an action to help deal with and put out a fire. This could be a manual action, including using a fire extinguisher. It could also be automated, such as when a sprinkler system detects fire and automatically starts discharging water. A passive fire solution, on the other hand, aims to prevent fire and smoke from spreading.

The type and level of fire fighting equipment you will need in your building depends on the building’s size and layout, as well as who uses the building and what is inside. Our expert team can give you customised advice specific to your requirements. Get in touch today.

Small fires can cause damage before getting big enough to trigger a fire suppression system. Having fire extinguishers in your building will help you to extinguish smaller fires like these quickly and effectively.

Your fire fighting and protection equipment should have tags with testing and maintenance information, but there is a better solution – leave the testing and maintenance to us. We keep records in-house to ensure your equipment is tested and maintained on a pre-determined schedule.
