Why Fire Extinguishers Need to be Serviced?

Fire extinguishers must be regularly inspected and serviced to ensure that they are in the correct locations, have not been damaged, and are fully operational. 

If fire extinguishers aren’t maintained correctly, they will not work when needed in an emergency. This scenario could result in a loss of life, and expose business owners and employers under corporate liability criminal law.

A fire warden or responsible person can carry out these checks. However, to ensure that your portable fire appliances are in serviceable condition, they must be inspected by a competent person that will check to see if the fire extinguishers have dropped in pressure or been discharged.

At Clearview, we follow the British Standard for the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers manufacturers, BS 5306-3: 2017. As a result, you can be confident that your extinguishers are maintained to a high standard and fully compliant. In addition, we can provide guidance on the following:

  • Commissioning
  • Basic service
  • Extended service
  • Overhaul procedures
  • Recharge

Monthly Fire Extinguisher Inspection

This check can be carried out by the responsible person or other trained individuals such as fire wardens. The inspection should ascertain if the extinguisher has been depressurised or tampered with and the fire extinguisher instructions should be clearly visible.

Yearly Fire Extinguisher Service

Fire extinguishers should be serviced annually to comply with the British Standard guidelines.

A competent portable fire extinguisher engineer or technician should complete an annual service. We strongly recommend only using a third-party accredited company for this task as it is critical as part of the building(s) fire strategy to safeguard life.

The maintenance label should be signed once the extinguisher has been serviced, and any damaged appliances should be removed and replaced.

Extended Fire Extinguisher Service

The extended service should be carried out at five-yearly intervals for some types of fire extinguishers, such as:

  • Water fire extinguishers
  • Powder fire extinguishers
  • Wet chemical fire extinguishers
  • Foam fire extinguishers

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 will also include discharging the fire extinguisher to ensure that the fire suppressant is compliant. Furthermore, the O rings will be examined and changed as required, and the vessel will be inspected for corrosion or cracking. The fire extinguisher valves are inspected and replaced before refilling, and re-pressurisation commences.

Replacing Fire Extinguishers

Due to the environmental damage of discharging water, powder, or foam fire extinguishers, it is more common now to replace fire extinguishers at the five-year point. In this scenario, the old fire extinguishers should be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way through a licensed waste carrier. ClearView operates to the highest environmental standards in accordance with our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification.
