Fire extinguisher Installation & Maintenance

Fire Extinguisher Servicing, Installation, and Commissioning:

Fire Extinguisher Servicing:

Regular servicing of fire extinguishers is crucial to ensure they function correctly during an emergency. The service includes a thorough inspection for any signs of damage or corrosion, checking the pressure gauge, and ensuring the extinguisher is fully charged and ready for use. In the UK it is a legal requirement for fire extinguishers to be serviced annually by a competent person, as per the British Standard BS 5306-3.

Fire Extinguisher Installation:

The installation process involves placing fire extinguishers in strategic locations throughout a building to ensure they are easily accessible in case of a fire. They should be mounted at the correct height on walls or placed on stands, as specified by BS 5306-8:2012. Care is also required to ensure that they are not installed to close to fire hazards. The installation should be carried out by a competent fire extinguisher service engineer to ensure compliance with regulation.

Fire Extinguisher Commissioning:

Commissioning is the first step after installation, where a qualified engineer performs a series of checks to certify that the extinguisher is fit for purpose and ready for use. This includes attaching the discharge nozzle, checking the tamper device, verifying the pressure gauge is in the green zone, weighing the extinguisher, and recording the information on a label affixed to the extinguisher. Commissioning ensures that the extinguisher is ready for use and complies with BS 5306-3

Workplace Fires in the UK:

Workplace fires pose a significant risk, with around 22,000 incidents reported each year in the UK, averaging about 423 fires per week. These statistics underscore the importance of having properly installed, commissioned, and serviced fire extinguishers to mitigate the risks and protect lives and property.
