Important note: Halon Fire Extinguishers were banned in the UK in 2003. This was due to scientific findings linking Halon substances to damage of the Earth's ozone layer. it is now illegal to hold an extinguisher of this type on your premises without special permission. They can be easily identified as they were green in colour, rather than red. If you have an old Halon Fire Extinguisher, we can help advise on disposing of these safely.
