Fire Extinguisher Hire

 Fire Extinguisher Hire for Festivals

Our fire extinguisher hire service is best suited to short term hire for concerts and events ranging from 3 days to any number of months.

We can accommodate any size of event held in the UK from large music festivals, working businesses to small village fete's.

At any event it is still a requirement to carry out a fire risk assessment to establish what Health & Safety measures are appropriate for the environment and hazards within it. One of the main requirements for any event is to provide the appropriate fire fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers. Before the hired fire extinguishers can be put into place, they must be serviced to current British Standards which comes as standard within the service we provide.

When holding such events as music festivals, hiring fire extinguishers is the most cost effective option available. Additional fire equipment such as fire extinguisher stands is also available to hire and more often than not required. All fire extinguishers must either be placed on a wall mounted bracket or on a fire extinguisher stand.

To hire any fire extinguisher from our hire department is simple and straight forward. When hiring from UK Fire Protection all hired extinguishers will be extensively serviced by our BAFE qualified engineers so they are ready for immediate use.
