Discontinuation of The Britannia & Blazex Range

June 12, 2024

We would like to inform you that we are discontinuing the manufacture of the Britannia & Blazex Ranges.

We have been manufacturing portable extinguishers in the UK since 1970 and The Britannia range since 1986, however following the successful launch of our P50 Range in 2010 we have seen the demand for the metal ranges diminish as many customers are transitioning over to the P50 Range.
Therefore, it is sadly no longer viable for us to continue the manufacture of Britannia & Blazex and we have made the decision to cease production from 1st July 2024.
This will not affect our Norfolk Wheeled Range.


Alternative products

We are very excited to be upgrading our Main Factory to solely manufacturing the technologically advanced and completely PFAS Free P50 Composite range, and are investing over £1 million in renovations and state of the art machinery to enable us to increase our production capacity going into 2025., Whilst meeting our ambitious objective to carbon net zero manufacturing, further advancing our environmental credentials and remaining the world’s first and only patented composite fire extinguisher manufacturer.


The P50 Range is available in PFAS Free foam, ABC powder, Water mist and F-Class. www.p50.co.uk
A Monnex powder is in the early stages of development and should be available for sale in 2025.


Schedule for discontinuation
We will manufacture all available stock on site which will be available from 1st July 2024. Please contact our sales team for up-to-date availability on sales@britannia-fire.co.uk


End of an Era
It truly is the end of an era for manufacturing traditional steel portable fire extinguishers here at Britannia Fire, but we are excited to grow our business and your success is also important to us and we can achieve this together with our environmentally friendly products.

We are looking forward to seeing what 2025 and beyond has in store for us all. We hope to have your continued support and custom on this journey.
