Frequently asked questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is BS5306 ?

BS5306 is the British Standard for Fire Extinguishing Installations. In relation to fire extinguishers there are Parts 3, 8 & 9 which cover commissioning & maintenance, siting and recharging. BS5306 sets out what is required in each of these areas and the minimum standards that should be complied with. 

Is there a requirement to have fire extinguishers serviced ?

Essentially yes. If you look at the labels on most fire extinguishers it will normally state that the extinguisher should be serviced annually by a competent person. Additionally Section 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that any equipment provided under the order are subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.

What is a basic annual service ?

Fire extinguishers should have an annual basic service every year. This is a safety check to ensure that the fire extinguisher has not been used, lost pressure or tampered with. A basic annual service involves checking the weights, gauges and replacing o-rings, seals and anti-tamper tags. 

What is an extended service ?

In general fire extinguishers with a gauge require an extended service every 5 years. This involves discharging the extinguisher to check that it reaches the prescribed distance and empties completely. After this the head-cap and valve assembly is removed and the internal lining is inspected. If this is ok the extinguisher is refilled and recharged. There are various issues with discharging foam and powder extinguishers and it is normally more cost effective to replace them.

What is an extended service on a CO2 extinguisher ?

CO2 extinguishers have to undergo an overhaul every 10 years. This involves a pressure test on the cylinder and then refilling it. In practice the costs for doing this are often more than a new extinguisher so it normally more economical to replace these extinguishers and remove the old ones for recycling.

Is anything else involved ?

Yes, we have to provide a report after servicing fire extinguisher which includes other factors. We will look at your site as whole and review the fire risks to make sure that you have the correct type of extinguishers and the correct amount. Other things we look at are things like mounting, positioning and signage.
