Fire Extinguishers

We know that for your business, your priorities lie in keeping your workplace safe. That’s why our fire extinguisher maintenance programme is ideal for you.  Fire extinguishers need to work straight away when needed, so it is vital they are regularly checked and serviced. It is the responsibility of a business owner or responsible person for a building to ensure that extinguishers are serviced in accordance to the BS 5306-3:2009. 

The Regulatory Fire Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 states that fire fighting equipment “must be subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.”

Magni Fire Ltd can maintain and service all types of extinguishers, small and large, including: 

  • Water extinguishers
  • Foam extinguishers
  • CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) extinguishers
  • Wet chemical extinguishers
  • Dry power extinguishers for all classes of fires

There are two types of maintenance procedures. A visual inspection by the user and maintenance by a competent person.  Visual inspections should be carried out monthly and a maintenance service on a yearly basis.

It may be necessary to carry out a basic service more than once in a 12 month period if the monthly visual inspection identifies any damage or drop in pressure.  

After an extinguisher has been used, even if only partially, it must be recharged or replaced and all extinguishers should be fully serviced annually.

Extended servicing

Every five years most fire extinguishers need an extended service. This means completely discharging the extinguisher, checking for internal corrosion, refilling and repressurising.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers need an extended service every 10 years. This involves a hydrostatic pressure test, to comply with pressure vessel legislation and a new valve. Most fire extinguisher servicing engineers will supply a ‘service exchange’ (refurbished) unit due to the onerous requirements of this process.

Magni Fire Ltd will ensure that you have the correct equipment – fully compliant with all legislation. 

 Fire extinguisher maintenance services include:

  • Full compliance, meeting your legal and insurance obligations
  • BAFE (British Approval for Fire Equipment) registered engineers
  • Peace of mind knowing your fire extinguishers will work when you need them to
  • A reliable and cost-effective way of managing your fire equipment
  • Diarised appointments to ensure your fire extinguishers are regularly maintained
