Some fire extinguishers are available in silver, gold and copper finishes, in addition to the standard red colour. Silver coloured fire extinguishers are also often referred to as polished chrome and are generally manufactured from stainless steel or aluminium.

Are Non-Red Fire Extinguishers Legal To Use In The UK?

Stainless steel, gold and copper finish extinguishers are manufactured to the same standards as the red coloured extinguishers but only red extinguishers can be kitemarked and approved to BS EN3. Most non-red fire extinguishers supplied by reputable companies in the UK are tested to BS EN3 although they don’t comply with them because they are not red.

Non-red fire extinguishers, if supplied in the UK, and acquired from reputable sources, will have been manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 Quality standards and will also be CE marked and, therefore, be completely legal.

Chrome, gold and copper finish fire extinguishers may be an ideal choice for you, in certain situations, based on the local environment in which they are to be used. For example, where hygiene is of paramount importance and/or where the environment is humid or wet, fire extinguishers manufactured from stainless steel or aluminium may be something you would wish to consider because they are far less prone to corrosion.

When considering architecture, appearance and the aesthetics of the environment, it may be that it’s simply the colour of the fire extinguisher is what’s important to you.
Polished silver or gold coloured fire extinguishers, for example, might be appealing to you if you don’t want to spoil the contemporary and modern space that you’ve created, which red coloured fire extinguishers may do.

If you have an area that has a more antique feel about it or has been created to showcase a particular theme or setting, maybe in a case such as a museum exhibition or in a property with a heritage feel, then brushed antique copper fire extinguishers might be something that you consider would be more fitting in terms of appearance.

Brushed antique copper fire extinguishers are not just suitable in antique type settings, they can also fit in perfectly in modern bars and restaurants, luxury hotels and contemporary offices.
