Fire extinguisher servicing carried out on a regular basis ensures that in an emergency it will be in the best possible shape to fight a fire.
All of our fire extinguisher servicing is carried out in accordance with AS1851:2012 by our fully qualified technicians at your premises, where required, or at our workshop.
In a commercial environment AS1851:2012 requires all fire extinguishers to be serviced on a 6 monthly basis with specific areas requiring attention on a 1 year and 5 year basis. You may also find that fire extinguisher servicing is a requirement specified by your insurance company or may lead to a price reduction for your insurance policy if this is carried out.
After any servicing work, all maintenance tags are updated to reflect the date of the service and type of service carried out and a full location report is emailed to the designated contact. This is a requirement of AS1851:2012
The Australian standard AS1851:2012 includes several tables relating to fire extinguisher servicing and testing. are the basis for all fire extinguisher servicing carried out by our technicians.

The tables in the AS1851 provide an extensive list of tasks to be carried out on each fire extinguisher. Make sure your current provider services your fire extinguishers properly!
