Will my insurance be void if my extinguishers are not serviced & maintained?
Yes, your insurance will be void if you cannot show that your extinguishers have been serviced annually. We keep your service & maintenance records for you to present to your insurance company.
Is fire extinguisher servicing expensive?
The last thing businesses usually want to spend money on is fire safety. A faulty extinguisher could be the difference between some minor damage and a major blaze that could cost you your business and ultimately the lives of you and your staff. We will assess your needs and give you a no obligation quote.
My fire extinguishers are not very old, why do I need them to be serviced?
Aside from avoiding invalidating your insurance, servicing ensures that extinguishers work when you need them. Depending on the type of extinguisher, gas can leak from gas cartridges. You do not want to be in the position of squeezing the trigger and nothing happens. We weigh and replace any leaking gas cartridges. Similarly we ensure stored pressures are correct on pressure extinguishers. We inspect head, hose, horns and valves to ensure they will work correctly. We remove the extinguisher head for a thorough inspection of the internal lining.
I have old fire extinguishers (some with old colour markings) will I need to replace them?
No, not if they are still serviceable. Some companies may tell you that you have to replace them with the modern colour coded fire extinguishers, but this is not the case. As long as the cylinders are serviceable and Staff Safety Training covers the difference, then the old extinguishers are perfectly adequate and fulfil your obligation.
Our Staff Safety Training includes training on the correct extinguisher to use identified by old & new colour codes.
Who can service my fire extinguishers?
Each extinguisher requires an annual test which must be carried out by a competent service engineer to the relevant standards. We are service engineers with many years experience of fire extinguisher servicing.
