Service & Maintenance
Under the Fire Safety Order (FSO) employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that all fire extinguishers on the business premises are fully operational and safe to use. Fire extinguishers are highly pressurised containers that when corroded or damaged can explode, causing serious injury and even death.
Regular inspection and servicing keeps fire extinguishers safe to use, and your business within the law. There are two types of fire extinguisher maintenance. Basic inspection by the business owner or employee, and full servicing by a competent person, such as a Dragon Fire Prevention.
Full servicing of a fire extinguisher must be done annually, and an extended servicing must be performed every 5 years for water, foam and powder fire extinguishers. CO2 fire extinguishers must be overhauled and recharged every 10 years.
You don't want a fire extinguisher to make a bad situation worse. At Dragon Fire Prevention, we service and maintain your fire extinguishers for a competitive price. If you find a cheaper deal elsewhere, get in touch and we will match it!
Installation and commissioning of a fire extinguisher should always be done by fire extinguisher engineers to make sure that your fire extinguishers are as efficient as possible. We see to it that fire extinguishers are installed in the correct locations with proper security brackets mounted. A fire extinguisher should never be more than 30 metres from a possible fire in your business. Dragon Fire Prevention can survey your building and pinpoint the optimal locations for various fire extinguishers amplifying your safety and guaranteeing your business complies with UK fire regulations.
