FIRE EXTINGUISHER MAINTENANCE
Whether you want regular visits from our competent engineers or a more flexible contract to respond to your specific needs, we can tailor a maintenance service around you.
British Standard 5306-3 covers the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers and recommends that “regular visual inspections of all portable fire extinguishers be carried out by the user or user’s representative. The frequency of inspections by the user should be not less than monthly and, when circumstances require, inspections should be carried out more frequently”.
Inspections should include checks that each extinguisher:
Is located in the designated place;
Is unobstructed, visible and its operating instructions face outwards;
Has operating instructions which are clean and legible;
Is not obviously damaged;
Has a reading in the operable range or position of any pressure gauge or indicator fitted;
Has seals and tamper indicators which are not broken or missing.
Installation and maintenance must be carried out by a registered extinguisher technician, and at 12 monthly intervals thereafter. The following chart shows the basic types & frequency of maintenance.
