ClearView Fire Extinguishers Installation Services

We help businesses and organisations ensure their property and people are safe whilst remaining compliant. Our fire extinguisher installation and commission service enable you to ensure you meet regulatory guidance.

Prior to any installation, we consistently perform a comprehensive site survey to ensure adherence to BS 5306-3:2017 standards. The purpose of this survey is to guarantee that we suggest the appropriate type and quantity of fire extinguishers for your property.

During the site survey, our technician will accomplish the following:

  • Calculate the number of extinguishers necessary to adequately cover the entire site.
  • Identify potential fire hazards.
  • Assign the appropriate fire extinguisher to address each fire hazard.
  • Verify that the extinguishers are in visible locations and can be accessed without any danger.
  • Suggest the necessary extinguisher signage, if applicable.

    Fire Extinguisher Commissioning: Ensuring Safety and Compliance

    When it comes to fire safety, it’s essential to ensure that your fire extinguishers are in good condition and comply with relevant standards. At ClearView, we offer professional extinguisher commissioning services to ensure that your fire extinguishers are fit for purpose and compliant with BS 5306-3 regulations.

    Our FIA-Certified technicians conduct a thorough sequence of commissioning actions that adheres to BS 5306-3, including attaching the discharge nozzle, checking the tamper device, pressure gauge needle, and physical damage, and weighing the extinguisher. Once the checks are completed, we issue a fire extinguisher commission certificate to give you the peace of mind that your extinguishers are ready to use in case of an emergency.

    Fire Extinguisher Installation: Safe and Accessible

    Proper installation of your fire extinguishers is crucial to ensure that they are easily accessible and quickly put into use in case of a fire. Our technicians will safely transport and install your extinguishers in the locations identified during the site survey.

    According to the guidance from BS 5306-3: 2017, there are two ways to install fire extinguishers:

    1. Wall-mounted: Extinguishers should be securely fitted to wall brackets, with the carrying handle placed 1 metre from the floor. For extinguishers under 4kg, the handle should be 1.5 meters from the floor.

    2. Fire Extinguisher Stands: If wall-mounting is impractical, we can use fire extinguisher stands. Extinguishers should be placed within recessed housing or cabinets to avoid accidental damage and floor clutter.

    We ensure that your fire extinguishers are always in a prominent position and accessible, meeting all the relevant standards for your peace of mind.
