Although it is a common misconception that a Fire Extinguisher is either decorative or convenient door stop, it is a legal requirement not only to have extinguishers in a commercial premises, but to service and maintain them in accordance to the correct British Standards, under your responsibilities when employing staff, engaging with the public or providing vehicles for commercial use.
It is also useful to note that many commercial tenancies require the tenant to supply, service and maintain portable firefighting appliances (extinguishers) as these often do not fall under the responsibility of the landlord unless supplied in communal areas.
JPro Services Ltd can provide extensive knowledge from our BAFE technicians on what you need and where to place the extinguishers for optimum use.
Fire extinguishers are only there to aid your escape. You should NEVER attempt to tackle a fire yourself and should ALWAYS evacuate a building and then call the Fire Service.
You may have thought about purchasing extinguishers from online providers, but unless the unit is commissioned by a competent person you are still not complying to regulation. All our extinguishers are delivered by a BAFE approved technician and installed, commissioned and then serviced annually* in accordance primarily with BS5306 and all relevant standards.
We can also supply signage and wall mount the units correctly or in addition supply cabinets, stands and jackets for protection.

Extinguishers For Your Vehicle
Each year over 28,000 cars catch fire in the UK (that's around 300 a day). Some are as a direct result of arson, but many are due to technical faults, crashes and unforeseen circumstances. JPro can provide you with extinguishers designed specifically for cars that can be fitted in an easily accessible place. Car extinguishers are designed to give you time to exit the vehicle safely and not to fight the fire yourself – this should be left to the fire service.
If you supply commercial vehicles to your staff, then you are obliged to supply a fire extinguisher for each vehicle.
