All types of extinguisher require a regular fire extinguisher inspection to check weight, correct pressure and for signs of corrosion or damage.

Labels are checked so that they are readable and dip tubes, hoses and mechanisms are checked to see if they work properly.

Fire safety regulations (the essentials)

Before anything, you need to have the essentials taken care of; the essentials being fire safety laws and regulations that your business needs to abide by.

Such laws and regulations are in place so that the responsible person(s) are aware of what the possible risks are, what safety measures need to be put in place, and what the consequences are if they do not meet these requirements.

Below is a list of the fundamentals that your business needs in order to comply with fire safety regulations in the UK:

  1. Carrying out a fire risk assessment
  2. Keeping a fire safety logbook
  3. Providing fire-fighting equipment
  4. Installing fire safety equipment (alarm systems)
  5. Displaying fire safety signs
  6. Carrying out fire drills and fire safety training

Fire extinguisher servicing, maintenance and installation

Not only are fire extinguishers an essential fire fighting tool, but they are also a legal requirement.

Fire extinguishers must be fit for operation whenever needed, and their regular checking is part of existing fire safety legislation under the Fire Safety Order and a crucial requirement for many insurers.

The services available from Fireline will help to ensure that your business is equipped for protection from fire:

  • Fire extinguisher supply and installations
  • Fire extinguisher servicing and maintenance (inc re-filling)
  • Supplying a variety of types, sizes and weights from leading manufacturers with a warranty, including Water, CO2, Dry Powder and Wet Chemical fire extinguishers

Process of Commissioning

Commissioning of a new or refurbished extinguisher should be carried out by a competent person. After removal from its packaging and transit protection, and immediately before being placed in its designated location, the extinguisher must undergo the sequence of commissioning service actions described in British Standards, with the safety precautions being carefully observed.

In the event that the manufacturer has not marked the mass of the extinguisher or a nominal range of mass for the extinguisher, the competent person should consult the manufacturer’s workshop manual for that model or contact the manufacturer to obtain this information.

When all of these checks have been satisfactorily completed, the extinguisher should be installed and positioned in accordance with BS 5306-8.

Under the British Standard, an extended service - otherwise known as discharge testing - is to be carried out at stipulated intervals. For water, foam, dry powder or wet chemical extinguishers, this is every 5 years. CO2 extinguishers require extended servicing every 10 years. In the case of powder or CO2 extinguishers, you will be offered a service exchange unit which is more practical and economical than emptying and refilling the contents.

Our Service Department will remind you when your annual service is due and make the necessary arrangements for an engineer to visit. Furthermore, we operate an online database which means your servicing and equipment records (including manufacturer, year of manufacture, next test discharge date and each extinguisher's location) is maintained in our database, to which you will also have access. This is particularly beneficial if you are a multi-site company, as at a glance you can see in real-time when sites are due a service.
