Fire Extinguisher Servicing and Maintenance Gatwick

Our Fireline engineers offer the premier standard of fire extinguisher maintenance Gatwick has to offer and are fully qualified to inspect and service portable fire extinguishers. Extinguishers that are not maintained annually to the British Standard are no longer considered compliant.

Putting The Correct Measures In Place

The potential for any fire to grow and cause huge amounts of damage can never be underestimated. Without fully functioning fire extinguishers in place, this potential is far greater.

If a fire started now, would you be confident that you have a working fire extinguisher to put it out safely? Do you have a schedule in place to ensure you receive regular fire extinguisher servicing? If you had to quickly exit the building because of a fire, are you sure that your extinguishers are correctly positioned on the route to safety?

Making The Correct Decisions

Selecting and siting the appropriate type of fire extinguishers to protect your premises is vitally important. No different from ensuring you have appropriate insurance cover – in fact, not having the correct fire-fighting equipment in place is just like driving without insurance, both ethically and legally.

We have extensive experience providing effective and reliable fire safety services, with a particular emphasis on fire extinguisher servicing, maintenance and installation. We have attended a huge number of premises over the years to refill or replace used fire extinguishers; time and time again fire extinguishers have proven invaluable in preventing a small fire from taking hold.

By choosing Fireline to take care of this important role you will have the peace of mind that you have selected a company that only employs BAFE qualified technicians to undertake the installation and service work. Our engineers are audited both internally and by a third party each year to ensure that our high standards are maintained.

A Variety of Benefits

Ensuring your fire extinguishers are regularly serviced offers many benefits, such as reduced costs, usually incurred from constantly disposing of older equipment and replacing it with new ones, therefore reducing your company’s carbon footprint.

At Fireline we specialise in fire extinguisher sales and servicing and offer expert advice on how best to protect your buildings.

We service all makes of extinguisher to BS5306. We offer a full range of fire extinguisher inspections services to ensure that your property/premises are protected by fully operational fire extinguishers.

What Do We Check?

All types of extinguishers 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.

At Fireline , we offer a regular fire extinguisher inspection to all of our clients and regardless of the size of your property or company, will come and visit you in your offices.

We already have an extremely diverse client base and serve clients with the same level of customer service regardless of whether you are a small organisation or a large corporate blue-chip organisation.

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 that 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 to service.
