This page aims to provide the reader with a brief overview of our portable fire extinguisher maintenance services.

The Main Standard to Which we Work

As mentioned in the About Us section in greater detail, our BS EN ISO 9001 certification in combination with our BAFE Certification for “the Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers” to BAFE schemes SP101 and ST104 certifies that the maintenance we provide is undertaken to the standards laid down in BS 5306-3 - the main standard applicable to the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers.

What does the Scheduled Maintenance Visit Entail?

The checks and work carried out during properly undertaken scheduled maintenance visits are quite detailed and the reader is referred to this document for the detail as to what is involved in the equipment’s maintenance. Our BS EN ISO 9001 certification by a UKAS-accredited independent third party shows that we do this work properly.

Please note that during our scheduled maintenance visit (usually an annual visit) we provide the ‘basic service’ and, where so required by BS 5306-3, the ‘extended service’ for each extinguisher. Additionally, we also conduct a site extinguisher-survey to ensure the level of cover at your site is appropriate.

What About user Checks?

In addition to the scheduled maintenance by a competent person, The legal duty holder should also undertake two layers of checks:

This is not an inspection that we normally conduct as it is can be undertaken by the user. however, we can also provide this service if so requested.

Additional Service Items

Just like with most other services, additional parts and labour are frequently required. Details as to the reasons that apply to the most common types are provided in the links to the section pages to the right.

Unlike the vast majority of services, however, the work required is very precisely laid down in the British Standard. Therefore, our BS EN ISO 9001:2015 certification by a UKAS-accredited independent third party, along with the other factors laid down in the About Us section should provide you with complete peace of mind that we do the job properly and do no more than required.
