Exclusive to Safelincs - P50 Water Mist Service-Free Extinguisher

Safelincs Stand: 5/D57

A highly versatile and eco-friendly extinguisher

Fine droplets of de-ionised water are dispensed through a special nozzle creating a fine mist curtain that is highly effective on a wide range of fires. The P50 Water Mist can be used on class A fires as well as fires involving live electrical equipment of up to 1000v (at a distance of 1m) in accordance with BS EN 3. Its versatility makes it ideal for use in many environments including offices, warehouses, schools, hospitals and entertainment venues.

As Water Mist contains only de-ionised water, it is non-toxic and kind to people, animals and the environment. Unlike foam, powder or water extinguishers, Water Mist leaves no messy residue to clean up. These properties usually make it an ideal alternative to AFFF foam extinguishers. AFFF foam is due to be phased out in the near future due to the toxic nature of the PFAS chemicals they contain.

All the benefits of a service-free extinguisher

P50 Service-Free Extinguishers offer a variety of benefits including the potential to save you a substantial amount on your fire extinguisher costs. Their unique construction makes them incredibly lightweight yet strong and durable. Because of these distinctive attributes, they do not require annual servicing from a qualified engineer. Instead, a simple visual inspection can be completed annually by a member of your team. Safelincs will provide free training for this.

Unlike traditional fire extinguishers, P50 Service-Free Extinguishers do not need to be re-filled until they are 10 years old. They can then be refurbished for another 10 years of use, giving a total of 20 years of service. As they are not made from steel, P50 extinguishers will not corrode. They can be left outside without any further protection from the elements. Their super-strong construction makes them long-lasting, highly durable and impact-resistant.

Reduction in CO2e Emissions

By installing P50 Water Mist Extinguishers instead of steel extinguishers, our customers often see a large reduction in the number of extinguishers required at their site. Coupled together with the low-carbon production process for P50 Extinguishers and the eco-credentials of the Norfolk-based manufacturing plant, switching to P50 Extinguishers sees an average reduction in carbon emissions by 68% when compared to the steel equivalent.

Switch to P50 Water Mist Extinguishers and Save

With no annual servicing fee and a long life-span, many organisations enjoy large cost savings as a result of switching to P50 Service-Free Extinguishers. Due to the versatility of the P50 Water Mist Extinguisher, it may also be possible to reduce the number of extinguishers needed on your site, saving further cost.

P50 Water Mist Service-Free Extinguishers are exclusive to Safelincs. We offer a complete installation package free of charge which includes a site survey, delivery, installation, commissioning, certification and staff training. Visit our stand to book your free site survey and cost-saving/CO2e analysis.
