Fire Extinguisher Services

Fire extinguishers serve a key function in any business’s fire safety policy as a reactionary and safety measure. In the hands of an experienced professional, an extinguisher can put out an impending out-of-control fire or provide safe exit if one has already started. It is critical that the extinguishers on your property undergo routine testing, inspections, and repairs as needed in order to maintain their functionality.

6-maintenance is required every 6th year or when damage is suspected (Inspection included) 6-Year Maintenance requires discharging the tank and refilling it.
Hydrostatic Testing required every 12th year or when damage is suspected. (Inspection included) 12-Year Hydrostatic Testing requires discharging the tank and submerging it in water to test its integrity.  It will be refilled if it passes the test and scrapped if it does not.  You’ll need to purchase a new fire extinguisher if it is scrapped.
