Regular Inspections

All types of extinguisher require a regular fire extinguisher inspection to check weight, correct pressure and for signs of corrosion or damage. Cartridge extinguishers are opened up for internal inspection and we check the weight of the cartridge. Labels are checked so that they are readable and dip tubes, hoses and mechanisms are checked to see if they work properly.

The very nature of fire is highly unpredictable & as such, it is a necessity to know that you are well equipped to deal with it quickly and efficiently. This could be very reassuring in helping to prevent a fire from getting out of hand and harming others.

During a fire extinguisher inspection carried out by one of our fire prevention technicians, there are a number of elements which must be checked. We will ensure that:

  • Access to the fire extinguisher is not blocked by anything that could interfere with its accessibility during an emergency such as equipment or coats etc.
  • The pressure remains at the recommended level without dropping too low or too high.
  • The nozzle or other parts are all in full working order.
  • The pin and seal (not all extinguishers will have one) are working and intact.
  • There are no dents, leaks, rust, chemical deposits and/or other signs of abuse/wear.
  • Remove anything that may have been left on the extinguisher that may impede its use.

We strongly advise adhering to these standards to ensure that you can have complete confidence in your fire extinguishers being fully operational at the time when you most need to use it. This will, in turn, ensure that you are compliant with the needs of health and safety requirements within your working environment.

How Can We Help?

The Regulatory Fire Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 states that fire fighting equipment “must be subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.”

There are two types of maintenance procedures. Visual inspection by the user and maintenance by a competent person.

Fire Extinguisher Servicing Bournemouth

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.

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 placing 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
