What Are Automatic Fire Extinguishers Used for?

Automatic extinguishers are used for putting out fires where human intervention might be too slow in arriving or in areas where people might struggle to gain access to fight a fire effectively. They are also a sensible choice in locations containing highly combustible materials or where a fire might spread particularly quickly if not tackled immediately after ignition.

Automatic Extinguishers FAQs

In which areas does Scutum South East provide automatic extinguishers?

Automatic fire extinguishers are available for all commercial premises located in and around London and Surrey, including much of the rest of South East England.

What is an automatic extinguisher used for?

As the name suggests, these fire extinguishers are automatically triggered in the event of a fire and discharge without the need for human intervention. That makes them ideal for remote areas at premises where there may not be someone immediately on hand to respond to an alarm and start controlling the fire.

Does Scutum South East offer free consultations for automatic extinguishers?

Yes. We offer free phone consultations and free site visits to assess your fire extinguisher needs. That’s because we want to be 100% certain that you’re getting the right extinguisher for your particular building and fire risks.

Do automatic extinguishers need to be serviced/maintained?

All fire extinguishers are legally required to be regularly maintained and serviced under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. All our engineers are fully trained and qualified to ensure you get a premier service every time.

How quickly can Scutum South East deliver fire extinguishers?

You never have to wait long for delivery of your automatic fire extinguisher from Scutum South East. Delivery is usually made within 2-5 days.

Are fire extinguishers available to hire?

Yes, all types of extinguishers are available for hire. So, if you have the need for an automatic extinguisher for a one-off event or project, we can help.

Is Scutum South East accredited for the installation of automatic extinguishers?

We have a wide number of accreditations that mean we can install and maintain all types of fire extinguishers. All our engineers are fully trained and qualified, and they’re also all registered with the BAFE Registered Technicians Scheme for your peace of mind.

Do you also offer fire extinguisher disposal?

Yes. It is a legal requirement that damaged, unsafe or expired extinguishers are properly disposed of – they should never be thrown into a skip or with general waste. We’re licensed for the safe and legal disposal of all fire extinguishers.

What types of automatic fire extinguishers are there?

Most automatic fire extinguishers contain dry powder, which is a good all-round suppressant suitable for Class A, B and C fires or CO2, which is the ideal choice for electrical fires but can also be used on Class B fires.

What causes an automatic fire extinguisher to go off?

An automatic fire extinguisher has a glass bulb attached containing a liquid that expands rapidly under heat. Once a predetermined temperature has been reached, the bulb bursts and the extinguisher is triggered, releasing its contents over the source of the fire.
