Fire Extinguishers are a vital part of an organisation's fire safety plan, they can be a first line of defence in the event of an emergency.

Be sure to choose Right Action for your Fire Extinguisher Servicing requirements and rest easy in the comfort of a service provided by BAFE approved engineers with no fixed contract or hidden extras.

Who needs to think about Fire Extinguisher Servicing?

Fire Extinguisher Servicing should be a consideration for anyone owning a fire extinguisher. Under British Standard 5306-3, fire extinguishers must be maintained annually. Therefore, no matter the size of your business or the nature of your operations, Fire Extinguisher Servicing should be a key item on your fire safety calendar to comply with the British Standard 5306-3.

Fire extinguishers

What is BS 5306-3?

The UK servicing standard BS 5306-3 puts the responsibility on the user (i.e. the company) to use a competent person to perform the annual inspections, install, commission (skilled checks made to the extinguisher on-site), service and test discharge fire extinguishers.

What does Fire Extinguisher Servicing Involve?

Most organisations are required to undertake their Fire Extinguisher Servicing annually, although some risks warrant twice yearly Fire Extinguisher Servicing. When our engineers attend your site, what can you expect? Well, let's look firstly at what is involved in the Basic Annual Service:

Check that the safety pin and tamper seal are still in place to ensure that the extinguisher has not been operated.

Check the Service Label to ensure that the extinguisher is only due its Basic Service and not an Extended Service (more on that below)

Visually inspect the extinguisher and labelling to ensure that the condition is good.

Weigh the extinguisher

Test the pressure gauge to ensure that the extinguisher has retained pressure

Check that the hose, nozzle and safety pin are in good condition

Refit safety pin and secure with new tamper seal

Wipe down the extinguisher and fill in the Service Label

Beyond the Basic Annual Service, fire extinguishers will also require an Extended Service. Typically, this will be at five years. The Extended Service is a lot more thorough and involves fully discharging and refilling the extinguisher. This is a service that we can offer but, often, it is more cost effective for a replacement extinguisher to be offered at that stage, called a Service Exchange. We would also attend to the recycling of the old extinguisher at that stage. All of these options are discussed with our customers.
