Carpet Specialists Pull the Rug on Traditional Extinguishers!
Carpet & Flooring Ltd are a commercial wholesale supplier of floor coverings with over 30 years of trading and employing more than 300 people.
With 12 distribution centres around the UK, they offer next day delivery on their vast range of carpets, carpet tiles and vinyl. This has earned them a firm reputation among flooring contractors and specifiers as a trusted brand and supplier of high-quality products. “We have been aware of the P50 for a few years and decided to leave our current supplier once we realised the potential benefits, we couldn’t see any reason to stay with our old metal extinguishers”, explained Dylan Sweeney, National Operational Risk Manager for Carpet & Flooring. “Like any business we are always looking to improve health and safety, especially fire related. When I received an email from Eco Fire Safety with their short video explaining the benefits of the P50 over traditional extinguishers, I decided to take them up on their offer of a free survey and demo”, added Dylan.
Eco Fire Safety provided a detailed survey and report identifying both fire safety improvements and cost savings for Carpet & Flooring Ltd across their 12 locations. Our recommendations reduced the overall number of units by almost 50% and enabled the client to service the new P50’s in house, without the need for costly external service engineers. Naturally, suppliers of old traditional units aren’t a big fan of the P50! “We have halved the number of units required but with no decrease to our fire coverage rating”, explained Dylan. “We anticipate the P50’s will pay for themselves within the first 2 years and save us between £1000 – £2000 per site annually on service and maintenance! We would happily recommend Eco Fire Safety because they operate within our own ideals, great product and superb service”.
