Improve your Business’ Fire Safety by using Fire Cabinets

Fire safety within any organisation should be taken very seriously as poor preventative action could have devastation effects to not only your business assets but also – more importantly – your employees. There are many known fire safety procedures in place for a variety of industries and so whether you are own a catering business or office space through to owning a mechanical service business, you should be well prepared in the event of a fire.Fire Cabinets

One piece of fire safety equipment which is most commonly used in the event of a fire is a fire extinguisher. There are many different types of extinguishers available depending on the type of fire. For example, for flammable liquid fires and certain synthetic materials a ‘foam extinguisher’ should be used. The foam will create a protective layer over the fire – it should be well known that without oxygen a fire will not continue to burn! Another alternative would be a ‘carbon dioxide extinguisher’. These extinguishers are generally used for electrical equipment as they do not contain any liquid and so would not ignite the fire any further.

A great deal of investment is made to ensure staff are trained in the use of fire extinguishers which is often repeated on a yearly basis. Even in working environments where a fire is vastly less likely, time is still taken to go through the basics as a precaution. One area that is often overlooked with using fire extinguishers is the proper storage of them. Many are just left at to the side, usually causing an obstruction and are not correctly protected making them more likely to be faulty.

One way to minimise this risk is by using fire cabinets. These cabinets are purposely built to house various sized fire extinguishers which can then be affixed to walls or can be left freestanding. These fire cabinets act as a large visual marker of what equipment is enclosed. These storage units are water tight and can also protect against foreign materials clogging up spouts and trigger mechanisms making them vastly safer to use.
