he aviation industry doesn’t take chances or cut corners when it comes to fire risk. With that sentiment in mind, it really is a true endorsement of the P50 Fire Extinguisher, that it has been chosen by Britain’s busiest airport, Heathrow.

Chris Allen, Heathrow Procurement Business Partner, Engineering, said: “There were many reasons why the P50 appealed to Heathrow. Its lower carbon footprint was one.

It is manufactured by a UK business and has a European supply chain. “Traditional metal fire extinguishers typically come with parts imported from Asia and with the P50 we will instantly see a reduction in the supply chain carbon footprint by restricting transit from Asia to the UK.

“The technology behind the P50 also meant fewer extinguishers were needed on the premises because it covered multiple risks.

We also have the added benefit of being able to maintain these in-house which reduces security clearances for service engineers coming on site,” concluded Chris.
