ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Wheeled Fire Extinguishers

IS Standard : IS 16018:2012

Wheeled fire extinguishers are essential firefighting tools that are made to be mobile and have the capacity to put out fires in a variety of locations, especially big commercial buildings, airports, industrial sites, and places where there is a high risk of fire. Because of their strong wheels, these fire extinguishers are lightweight and simple to move, even for one person. Compared to conventional portable extinguishers, they are noticeably bigger and stronger, and they frequently hold a greater amount of a firefighting ingredient, such as foam, water, dry chemical powder, or carbon dioxide (CO2). Wheeled fire extinguishers' main benefit is its increased firefighting capability, which enables continuous fire suppression for a longer amount of time. They are therefore perfect for fighting big or persistent flames that may be difficult for portable extinguishers to put out.

Wheeled fire extinguishers must meet certain technical specifications and quality criteria, which are outlined in IS 16018:2012. This standard applies to fire extinguishers that are wheeled and have a total mass of more than 17 kg but not more than 450 kg when fully charged. Please be aware that a cart or trailer cannot be included with fire extinguishers that weigh 450 kg or more. Adherence to IS 16018:2012 guarantees that these extinguishers are engineered and produced in accordance with strict safety and performance standards, augmenting their efficacy in putting out flames. By following these safety guidelines, manufacturers reduce the possibility of mishaps, injuries, or property damage resulting from defective or improperly used products.

Note: The obligatory ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of wheeled fire extinguishers.

Wheeled fire extinguishers must be ISI certified in order to comply with strict safety guidelines and technical requirements established by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). This certification improves firefighting efficiency and protects people and property. This certification demonstrates a manufacturer's unwavering dedication to providing extinguishers that meet and surpass strict quality and safety standards, giving users peace of mind that the apparatus they depend on in the event of a fire is of the best caliber and complies with strict safety requirements.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
