Warehousing Fire Extinguishers & Safety Equipment
Store rooms and warehouses are at a higher risk of fire due to the large number of flammable goods that may be stored with limited supervision. An added danger in a warehouse is that there are often large undivided areas and if fire starts it can spread uncontrollably.
Other fire risks in this environment include processes using flammable substances; faulty electrical apparatus or machinery; faulty or unattended equipment in kitchenettes and tea rooms; carelessly discarded smoking materials coming into contact with flammable items; and tradesmen working on the premises using equipment capable of starting a fire, such as blow lamps, gas torches or angle grinders, etc (known as Hot Work).
Lithium-Ion batteries found in forklift trucks as well as tablets and mobile phones may also pose a specific and significant fire risk in this environment. The battery of any of these devices may have been damaged or over-charged for example, causing it to become hot and potentially start smoking or burst into flames. Conventional fire extinguishers cannot effectively extinguish a Lithium-Ion battery fire only specialist extinguisher such as the Firechief Lith-Ex extinguisher is suitable.
