UK fire safety legislation states that you must provide ‘appropriate’ fire-fighting equipment in your business premises. This is usually referring to portable fire extinguishers but those businesses deemed as higher risk businesses (such as restaurants) may need additional equipment such as hose reels or sprinklers.

With our qualified and experienced team, our surveyors can advise you on the correct fire extinguishers for your premises - either as new installations and or for the maintenance of existing units.

Types of Fire Extinguishers


There are 5 different types of fire extinguishers in all different sizes.

  • Water (wood, paper, textiles)
  • Foam (wood, paper, textiles, flammable liquids, petrol)
  • Co2 (Electrical Fires where the current may be present, cooking oils and fats)
  • Wet chemical (Cooking oil, fats)
  • Dry powder (wood, paper, textiles, flammable liquids, flammable gases)

You must make sure the fire extinguishers fitted are the right kind for your business, in the best position and be annually maintained by a competent person.

R&S are fully BAFE registered which gives our customers peace of mind that the engineer onsite has the required experience, qualifications and meets all the standards in place.

NCM Auctions

I have used R & S Security for a number of projects I have worked on and will continue to do so. I have found their prices to be competitive but its sometimes not all about cost. The service in which I have received from this company is second to none. Their ability to work in what can be challenging conditions and always do a fabulous job leaving the premises clean and tidy, showing my clients how to operate the systems they have installed. This is backed up by full documentation and certification. Keep us the great work guys!! and look forward to working with you on another project.
