This British Standard has been prepared under the direction of the Fire Standards Policy Committee and specifies requirements for non-refillable fire extinguishers of the aerosol type.

It is recognized that small disposable non-refillable fire extinguishers can be exposed to more severe environmental conditions and are required to maintain their performance for longer periods than are other aerosol dispensers.

The requirements of this standard for the strength and pressure resistance of the extinguisher bodies are more stringent than those specified for the otherwise similar Group 1 containers in BS 3914:1991.

This type of extinguisher is intended for use only in situations where fires of limited proportions are anticipated because of the nature of some process or activity, where the possibility of fire spreading to other materials is remote, or where people are present at the likely times of risk.

The standard therefore is unlikely to meet the requirements of the various specifying authorities for more comprehensive protection.

This British Standard supersedes BS 6165:1992 which has been withdrawn.

Contents include:

  • Contents and construction of extinguishers
  • Production and performance requirements
  • Colour and marking of extinguishers
  • Test conditions
  • Storage and corrosion test
  • Impact and mechanical drop test
  • Storage conditions
