With a wide array of items in any shop, it’s important to make sure you’re meeting your legal obligations by providing adequate fire protection equipment. A shop fire extinguisher ensures that small fires can be quickly dealt with to prevent injury to staff and customers, but also to limit damage to your stock and your building.

At Fire Safety Equipment, we provide fire extinguishers for retail to match the risks involved, whether you have flammable liquids (class B) and gases (class C) or ordinary combustible items (classes A, B and C). With our range, you can purchase different units to match the unique risks in different areas of your store and enhance safety for everyone. You should also consider the size of your retail space and whether you need multiple units sited to avoid delays in tackling a fire.

Order fire extinguishers for shops today to protect your retail unit and we’ll provide swift, reliable delivery to your store.

 Fire Safety Challenges in Shops

A retail environment of any kind comes with a broad range of fire safety challenges. Some of the most common fire safety hazards in a shop include electrical items and outlets that have become overloaded, staff smoking areas and the general accumulation of materials that can present fuel for a source of ignition, such as stockpiles of textiles.

In order to keep both customers and staff safe in shops, you need a variety of fire safety equipment. It’s paramount that you have the right fire extinguisher in a shop to deal with the type of blaze you’re most likely to encounter, whether that’s a water extinguisher to deal with organic materials or a foam extinguisher to tackle flammable liquids such as paint.

Shop Fire Extinguishers Frequently Asked Questions

Which types of fire extinguishers are recommended for shop use?

Since all shops will differ in terms of fire risks, it’s important to identify the most appropriate extinguisher for your business. For example, if you have a shop that sells and stores lots of electronics, a CO2 extinguisher may be more appropriate as they are designed for electrical fires. Foam fire extinguishers might be more appropriate for shops selling paints, as they are designed to tackle flammable liquids (Class B fires).

If you need further guidance on selecting the right extinguisher, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What fire extinguisher should be used for a clothing store?

A powder fire extinguisher may be most appropriate for a clothes shop, as it can be used on textiles and other solids (Class A fires). However, foam and water fire extinguishers can also be used for this fire type.

If you need further guidance on selecting the right extinguisher, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Is it a legal requirement to have a fire extinguisher in a shop?

All commercial premises, regardless of whether they are shops, cafes or offices, are required by law to have adequate fire protection in place, including fire extinguishers. This is per The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, with a minimum of two Class A fire extinguishers for each storey of your building recommended.
