Service and Maintenance
When buying a top-quality fire extinguisher from Fire and Safety Centre, it is important to think about installing, commissioning and servicing that extinguisher.
Under British Standard 5306:3 2009, it is recommended for extinguishers to be commissioned before use. This involves a competent person carrying out important safety checks when the extinguisher is removed from its box. Installation of the extinguisher is also a key step in ensuring that the product is safely and appropriately placed within your premises. Finally, the British Standard recommends service and maintenance of the extinguisher on an annual basis, at the very least.
Our website offers install and commissioning options at the point of purchase and, if one of these is selected, then we will always contact you within a year to see whether you would also like us to carry out annual maintenance for you at that point.
These services are offered to you in two principal ways. If you are based in the Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire or Leicestershire area then our own in-house technicians will be able to provide these services to you.
If you are based anywhere else within the UK, then we are delighted to have partnered with Walker Fire (UK) Limited to offer these services. Both our in-house service company and Walker Fire are BAFE registered companies so we can offer you complete peace of mind on the quality of our work.
As well as extinguishers, we can offer other fire safety services upon request through our key partners. This offer includes service and maintenance of fire alarm systems, emergency lighting and wet/dry risers.
Please remember that under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, employers have a legal duty to ensure that fire extinguishing equipment is safe and in working order. Visual inspections should be carried out sporadically to check for any damage, but this is no substitute for proper annual maintenance. Remember to stick with Fire and Safety Centre, it is our mission to help to keep you safe.
