Our customers can rely on us to provide them with the most comprehensive annual fire extinguisher inspection procedure in the industry.

Understanding Your Fire Extinguisher’s Testing Timeline

Understanding the testing timeline for your fire extinguisher is crucial for ensuring its effectiveness and compliance with safety standards. Different fire extinguishers have varying requirements for when they must undergo testing and maintenance, which is determined by their type and the materials they contain. For instance, water and foam extinguishers typically require testing every 5 years, while dry chemical extinguishers might require attention every 6 years. CO2 extinguishers, on the other hand, often have a 5-year testing cycle. Additionally, all extinguishers should undergo a thorough inspection annually to check for functionality and safety.

It’s important to keep detailed records of all maintenance, testing, and inspections conducted on your fire extinguishers. These records not only help track the testing timeline and ensure compliance but also assist in identifying patterns that may indicate recurring issues or the need for replacement. We offer services to manage these schedules for you, providing reminders and scheduling maintenance or inspections as needed to keep your fire extinguishers within their required testing timeline.

The Importance of Annual Inspections

Annual inspections serve a dual purpose: confirming operational integrity and ensuring readiness for immediate use. During these inspections we meticulously examines the fire extinguisher for any visible defects or signs of wear and tear that could impair its functionality. One key aspect of this process involves checking the pressure gauge to ascertain that the extinguisher is charged and pressurized correctly, a crucial factor for effective operation.

Additional inspection elements include verifying that the pull pin is secure yet easily removable in an emergency, inspecting the hose or nozzle for obstructions or damage, and ensuring the instruction label is legible and intact. These inspections also provide an opportunity to review the placement of the extinguisher, making sure it remains accessible and unobstructed.

Replacing the dated tamper seal with a new one upon inspection is an essential step. This not only demonstrates that the extinguisher has been thoroughly inspected but also aids in tracking the inspection history.
