Fire Safety Supply & Maintenance

Fire Safety Supply & Maintenance

As one of the primary pieces of fire safety equipment, it is vital that fire extinguishers are installed and properly maintained at all commercial premises.

SOA team of experts are on hand to provide advice and assistance as to the correct fire extinguisher for your needs, ensuring that you remain safe and compliant with all relevant legislation.

Portable fire extinguishers should be located throughout your premises, strictly in accordance with BS5306 Part 8 (the current British Standard for the selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers). SOA’s team of fire safety advisors are fully versed in the standard, giving you peace of mind that you are adequately covered and compliant.

SOA supply, install and maintain a wide range of extinguishers, suitable for various fire types. These include:

Used in the event of all Class A fires, where the burning fuel consists of flammable solids such as wood, paper, fabric, textiles etc., water fire extinguishers absorb heat to cool the burning materials and stop the blaze. They are not suitable for those areas in which electrical fires are a possibility, or for fires caused by cooking fats.
The qualified team at SOA are on hand to supply, install and regularly service portable water fire extinguishers in a range of sizes, keeping your business safe and in line with industry regulations.
For more information, or to request a water extinguisher installation at your business, get in touch with SOA today.
Foam fire extinguishers operate by removing all oxygen from a fire, one of the three elements needed to start a blaze. Signified by a cream band, they are used for all Class A and B fires, where fuel may include wood, soft furnishings, paper and flammable liquids.
SOA supply, install and maintain a selection of portable foam extinguishers of various sizes at all commercial premises, providing advice and assistance regarding placement and usage.
For more information, or to request a foam extinguisher installation at your business,  get in touch with SOA today.
Sometimes referred to as ‘dry chemical’, powder extinguishers are versatile, and can be used on all Class A, B and C fires (as well as some electrical ones). Mostly used for fires containing chemical or oil as fuels, powder extinguishers are ideally suited to warehouse, factory and other industrial areas.
SOA  are the leading provider of powder extinguishers of all sizes throughout the North West, carrying out full installations in accordance with industry regulations.
It’s important that all extinguishers are kept in optimum working condition, which is why our expert team are on hand to perform regular and one-off servicing for all powder extinguishers.
Get in touch with SOA today for more information.
Specifically used for all Class B and electrical fires, CO2 extinguishers replace all oxygen within a blaze with carbon dioxide, thereby suffocating the fire.
This makes them suitable for all fires caused by flammable liquids, as well as making them safe for use on fires where electricity is present. The expert team at SOA are on hand to supply, install and regularly service a range of CO2 fire extinguishers, positioning them in the optimum location within your premises and providing instruction as to how to operate them.
Get in touch with SOA today for advice regarding your extinguisher needs.
Wet chemical extinguishers are suitable for all Class F fires, those caused by cooking oils and fats. A fine spray of suppressant chemicals cools the fat or oil without reacting with it, putting out the blaze. This makes them the ideal choice for catering areas, as well as larger residencies where cooking oils and fats at high temperatures are used.
SOA provide, install and maintain portable wet chemical extinguishers of all sizes throughout London and the South East, ensuring that your business or domestic environment remains safe and secure from the threat of cooking fires, as well as compliant with all relevant legislation.
