Extinguisher Installation & Maintenance
Fire Extinguisher Servicing, Installation & Commissioning
Every type of business premise or commercial property must have a minimum number of fire extinguishers installed in strategic, convenient locations. Fire extinguisher installation, servicing and commissioning should be carried out by a BAFE-certified engineer to ensure the correct types of extinguishers are installed in the correct location and are in good working condition.
Here’s where Arion comes in.
Fire Extinguisher Installation Experts
At Arion, we have BAFE accredited engineers, which is an independent registration body for third-party certified fire protection companies across the UK. Our skilled engineers have the right qualifications, training and experience with access to the appropriate equipment, tools and information to install, service and commission your building’s fire extinguishers.
We will install your fire extinguishers at the recommended height and location with the appropriate identification signs to ensure your commercial property complies with fire safety guidelines and requirements.
We can conduct a full site survey and use this to determine what type of extinguishers you require to suit your specifications. This way, you only get the correct fire extinguishers for your building.
As reliable fire extinguisher experts, you can trust us to work with a high level of efficiency, which ensures our fire extinguisher service is as cost-effective as possible for you.
How often Should A Fire Extinguisher Be Serviced?
Once fire extinguisher installation is complete, regular servicing and maintenance are required by law to ensure your fire extinguishers remain in working order, are in good condition and function correctly in an emergency.
As per current British Standards and the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order, fire extinguisher service is to be carried out 12 months after the initial service. This includes all the fire extinguishers that are in commercial properties or places that are required by law.
So, you should have your fire extinguisher serviced and maintained at least once a year, but only a competent person can carry this out. This is because they can provide you with a certificate that shows your extinguishers have been inspected, showing your compliance with regulations. The certificate is also vital for insurance purposes.
Since an annual service of your fire extinguishers is a legal requirement, it’s wise to set up a fire extinguisher service program with a competent fire extinguisher expert like us. It’s essential to note that we offer NO contract servicing, which is £6 per basic service.
As competent fire extinguisher installation and service providers, we can service all types of fire extinguishers.
