Maintenance and servicing of your Fire Extinguishers is a legal requirement and must be carried out annually as a legal minimum.
It’s also important to ensure servicing and maintenance is carried out by a competent person or accredited company, otherwise you may find your insurer refusing to cover damages.
What does Extinguisher Maintenance entail?
Different types of extinguisher require different types of servicing. These include:
Basic extinguisher Service:
An annual inspection required for all extinguishers. This service covers weight, pressure, label legibility, damage, corrosion and working order of tubes and mechanisms.
Extended extinguisher Service:
A number of Fire Extinguishers also require a 5 year maintenance check, which can include a recharge and test discharge.
