Fire extinguishers are normally placed on escape routes out of a building, and this makes them prone to being knocked and damaged. They are pressurized vessels and can be dangerous if damaged, posing a risk to the building occupants. One aspect of annual servicing is checking for damage and highlighting defective extinguishers.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 states that any fire safety equipment should be subject to a suitable system of maintenance and maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. If you have any firefighting equipment and it is not serviced by a competent person in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, it is unlikely that the responsible person for the premises would be able to demonstrate compliance.
Unless they are a maintenance free type, portable fire extinguishers require servicing every 12 months. During this service extinguishers are visually inspected for damage, the weight and pressure are checked and consumable items like o-rings, seals and anti-tamper tags are changed. Part of the service procedure is to check that the fire extinguishers are still suitable for the premises and fire risks and that there are enough available to fight a fire.
Every 5 years water, foam and powder extinguishers require a discharge test. This is where the extinguisher is discharged, the internal lining is inspected and then the extinguisher is refilled and repressurised. Due to issues with discharging and refilling foam and powder extinguishers onsite it is normally advised to replace them. Carbon dioxide extinguishers require an overhaul every 10 years from the date stamped on the cylinder. At this point CO2 extinguishers are normally replaced.
Our fire extinguisher servicing prices depend on several factors including the number of extinguishers and the type of building. As a general guide our prices start from £65 plus VAT. If you include your fire extinguisher servicing with another service that we provide and have it carried out at the same time we can often offer a discount.
