Fire extinguisher servicing and maintenance

We offer a full range of fire extinguisher maintenance servicing and supply.

Fire extinguishers are a requirement in all commercial premises under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005, Section 13, to protect people in the event of fire.

Fires are identified using a classification system and it is important to use the correct fire extinguisher to tackle each different type of fire.

Using our qualified and experienced engineers we can provide a full range of services, including:

  • annual testing, periodical discharge testing, sales of new fire extinguishers and stock management
  • ensuring that the fire extinguishers provided are appropriate for the risk
  • advising on the most appropriate positioning of your fire equipment
  • relocating and fitting any equipment that has been moved
  • advising on the most appropriate fire equipment when new machinery or processes are introduced or the risk level changes
  • highlighting any signs of damage and advise on appropriate solutions
  • providing advice and guidance relating to BS 5306, part 8.

Training

We also offer a wide range of training courses at various fire stations and/or your business premises.

Fire safety training is a type of Health and Safety area that is applicable to everyone in the workplace irrespective of the industry sector. Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is a legal requirement that every member of staff receives some form of workplace fire safety training.

Employers are equally accountable and liable for site safety including visitors, customers, staff and anyone who is lawfully allowed to be on your premises.
