Fire extinguisher servicing involves testing, handling and maintaining safety of fire extinguishers to guarantee their effective use during fire emergencies. Checking the extinguisher has not been used or if anything has been tampered with, making sure the pressure gauge reading is correct and checking for blockages in the discharge hose.

This ensures that a unit discharges correctly, that the internal inspection can be made, new sealing parts are added and new medium is used to refill these units, if compliant, they are then put back into service

Don’t Replace Your Existing Extinguishers

Within the British Standards, all types of extinguishers, apart from carbon dioxide units, require an extended service every fifth-year anniversary. Briefly explained, each foam, water, powder, and wet chemical extinguisher, must undertake a test that empties their contents.

This ensures that a unit discharges correctly and that an internal inspection can be made. Therefore, new sealing parts are added and a new medium is used to refill these units, if compliant, they are then put back into service.

This means you don’t need to replace extinguishers just because they are 5 years old, you can have them serviced with OHEAP and as long as they pass as safe, they can be returned to use.
