Fire Extinguisher Servicing

Fire extinguisher servicing should be carried out once a year to the standard laid down under BS 5306-3:2009. The service procedure involves thorough checking of the fire extinguisher for corrosion and partial or complete discharge. Reference should be made to the manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions for specific information on servicing and recharging.

Any fire extinguishers that are deemed unfit for use should be brought to the attention of the user and removed from service.

How To: 

1. Visually inspect the fire extinguisher for corrosion and damage.

2. Check that the extinguisher has not been used, by checking the following : Safety pin and tamper seal are in place and pressure gauge reading (indicating needle should be in the green area. This is not applicable for CO2 fire extinguishers)

3. Check that the operating instructions on the extinguisher are clear and legible.

4. Remove the discharge hose and check for blockages and corrosion. Once the discharge hose has been removed replace the ‘O’ ring

5. Weigh the extingushier and record on the service label. If there is more than a 10% weight loss, investigate and recharge.

6. Wipe down the extingusher.

7.Ensure that the wall mountings are secure and in good condition before replacing the appliance back on the wall.
