The Bowmer & Kirkland Group, a family run construction company that employs more than 1400 staff and consisting of 29 subsidiary companies or divisions operating from Derbyshire, Birmingham, Manchester, Motherwell, Newark, Reading and in the USA, have invested in the P50 extinguishers for its construction division.
Bowmer & Kirkland Ltd has 100 active construction sites working across the UK.
On-site safety is paramount so every installation has to be equipped with appropriate fire extinguishers. Previously this has meant a mixture of water or AFF, dry powder or CO2 extinguishers.
Installing P50s enabled the company to simplify the types of appliance employed while still covering all eventualities.
The multi-use P50 can be used on Class A and Class B fires, and are safe for use on live electrical equipment up to 1000 volts at a distance of one metre. This means that on many sites a single appliance can be employed instead of three.
