Home safety is a serious issue and one we probably don't take as seriously as we should. All too often, we compromise our safety due to aesthetic considerations, especially when it comes to fire extinguishers.
Fire extinguishers are not a legal obligation in private homes, unless you live in a flat or a building with communal areas, in which case the law makes fire extinguishers mandatory, in the UK at least. For private homeowners, having fire extinguishers at home is obviously good practice when it comes to the safety of the inhabitants.
However, for many of us, this unattractive safety equipment is not something that we want to have on display in our homes. They tend to ruin the aesthetics somewhat and for this reason they often end up shoved into a cupboard or left out in the garage.
Fire safety statistics have shown that there has been a steady decline in fire fatalities driven by increased fire safety measures. Having a fire extinguisher to hand can make all the difference if a fire were to break out in your home.
This is the exact reason that Eimdall took it upon themselves to come up with a new range of fire extinguishers which are not only practical and efficient, but that also look stylish. Eimdall is a Swedish company and the Scandinavian minimalism is very obvious from the clean design of their fire extinguisher range, which currently comes in black, white and silver. Their hope it that these well designed fire extinguishers will be proudly displayed in homes, almost like a decorative accessory rather than fire safety equipment.
Eimdall aren’t the only company who produce stylish fire extinguishers. We’ve also discovered Fire Design and Safe T, two more companies who offer a wealth of aesthetically pleasing options. We’ve picked out our favour extinguishers that have a distinctly industrial feel to them. This equipment would not look out of place mounted on the wall of a loft or a warehouse conversion and they certainly wouldn’t spoil the look.
