Effecient & Compliant Fire Extinguisher Servicing

At ClearView, we follow the British Standard for the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers manufacturers, BS 5306-3:2017. This ensures that your extinguishers are maintained to a high standard and fully compliant. We provide guidance on commissioning, basic service, extended service, overhaul procedures, and recharge.

At ClearView, we understand the importance of maintaining your fire extinguishers to ensure that they work efficiently in the event of an emergency. That’s why we make fire extinguisher servicing easy for you in a way that doesn’t disrupt your daily operations. Our expert engineers will conduct a thorough check of every part of your fire extinguisher, including safety devices, valves, operating mechanisms, and gauges. We also inspect externally and internally for any signs of corrosion and check that the weight of the fire extinguisher is within the appropriate range.

At the end of the service, our technicians will provide you with a ‘Certificate of Inspection,’ a legal document that confirms your fire extinguishers have been maintained to the highest standard and is kept and stored by both the engineers and yourself to ensure you are complying with regulations. If further work is required, our technicians will discuss it with you on the day. With our expert fire extinguisher servicing solutions, you can have peace of mind knowing that your fire safety equipment is fully compliant and in good working order.

    Monthly and Yearly Fire Extinguisher Service

    Monthly and yearly fire extinguisher service should be carried out to comply with British Standard guidelines. Our monthly service covers routine service inspections following BS 5266-1:2016. This check can be carried out by the responsible person or other trained individuals such as fire wardens. The yearly service should be carried out by a competent portable fire extinguisher engineer or technician.

    Extended Fire Extinguisher Service

    The extended service should be carried out at five-yearly intervals for some types of fire extinguishers, such as water, powder, wet chemical, and foam. The same rules apply to the annual service when using an accredited fire extinguisher maintenance company. The extended service covers the same tasks as the annual service, but it also includes discharging the fire extinguisher to ensure that the fire suppressant is compliant.

    Protecting the Environment: Our Approach to Replacing Fire Extinguishers

    Replacing fire extinguishers at the five-year point is a common practice due to the environmental damage caused by discharging water, powder, or foam fire extinguishers. At ClearView, we are committed to environmental sustainability and operate in accordance with our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification

    Our priority is to keep your workplace safe by providing a comprehensive extinguisher maintenance program that ensures your equipment is fully compliant with legislation, giving you peace of mind. Contact us today to get a maintenance quote and ensure that your fire extinguishers are in excellent working condition when you need them most.

      Common Questions about Fire Extinguisher Servicing

      How often should fire extinguishers be serviced?

      Fire extinguishers should be serviced at least once a year, as recommended by British Standards BS 5306-3: 2017. Additionally, some types of extinguishers require an extended service at five-year intervals, while others may require monthly inspections. The frequency of servicing will depend on the type of extinguisher, the environment it is located in, and the manufacturer’s guidelines.

      Who should service fire extinguishers?

      Fire extinguishers should be serviced by competent individuals with the appropriate training and qualifications. This may include in-house fire wardens or external service providers who are BAFE (British Approval for Fire Equipment) registered engineers. ClearView’s technicians are fully trained and certified to carry out fire extinguisher servicing to meet British Standards.

      What happens during a fire extinguisher service?

      During a fire extinguisher service, our technician will carry out a sequence of checks to ensure that the extinguisher is in good condition and functioning correctly. This includes checking for physical damage, corrosion, and loss of pressure, as well as inspecting the safety devices, valves, operating mechanisms, and gauges. Once the service is complete, the technician will issue a certificate of inspection to verify compliance.
