Why not use them anymore and which alternatives to choose

If you have halon fire extinguishers in your home or business, you must know that they are prohibited by law and that you must replace them as soon as possible with other types of fire extinguishers that are safer and more environmentally friendly.

Halon fire extinguishers are a type of fire extinguisher that use a halon gas as an extinguishing agent. Halon gas is a chemical substance based on carbon and halogens (fluorine, chlorine, bromine or iodine) which has the property of interrupting the chemical reaction of combustion.

Today halon fire extinguishers are being replaced by other types of fire extinguishers that use more ecological and harmless extinguishing agents, such as powder fire extinguishers or co2 fire extinguishers.

Why replace halon fire extinguishers?

  • Because they are illegal and subject to administrative and criminal penalties

  • Because they are dangerous to health and the environment

  • Because they are outdated and ineffective compared to new technologies

  • Because they are difficult to find and to recharge

    Fire extinguishers regulations

    Fire extinguishers regulations are rules and guidelines that specify the requirements and standards for fire extinguishers in different settings and situations. Fire extinguisher regulations may vary depending on the country, region, industry or authority that issues them.

    Some of the common aspects of fire extinguisher regulations are:

    • Fire extinguishers must be installed in easily accessible and visible places, close to exits and fire hazards.

    • Fire extinguishers must be appropriate for the class of fire they can extinguish (A, B, C, D o F).

    • Fire extinguishers must be maintained in good condition and checked periodically by qualified personnel.

    • Fire extinguishers must be installed at least 10cm from the floor up to a maximum of 1.5m. The exceptions are fire extinguishers heavier than 18kg, which can be installed up to 1.1m off the floor, and wheeled fire extinguishers that do not need to be lifted off the floor.
