Fire Extinguishers for Hotels

For every 200m² of floor space in your hotel you should provide a water (red) fire extinguisher. Additional firefighting equipment should be supplied at other relevant points. For instance, if cooking oil (Class F) fires are a risk in your kitchen, you should install wet chemical (yellow) fire extinguishers. Carbon dioxide (black) or powder (blue) fire extinguishers should be provided where there is a risk of electric or gas fire. You may also have to include supplementary equipment, such as fire blankets in the vicinity of the fire hazard, for instance the kitchen. Hotels also require the appropriate number of fire doors on every floor with with clearly marked escape routes from all points.
