At IES we offer this service our engineer will come out and carry out all the necessary checks. This involves checking the siting of the extinguisher and the fire extinguisher making sure they have been installed in a sensible location and that they are easy to access in the event of an emergency.
Checking the pressure gauge where applicable to ensure that the extinguisher has had no loss of pressure, checking the hose and the screwed thread to make sure it is clean and unobstructed making sure that there is no corrosion and where applicable replacing the o rings, weighing the extinguisher to make sure that there hasn’t been any loss of weight since it was installed, checking it has been correctly labeled to make the occupiers aware wat type’s of fire it is able to combat and that its service label has been successfully filled in each year previously and finally replacing the non-return seal so that it ensures that it hasn’t been tampered with for the next inspection the non-return seal should only ever be removed in the event of an emergency. We also thoroughly examine the fire blanket making sure it has been sited correctly, it is in clear view to the occupier in the event of an emergency, it hasn’t been tampered with and that it hasn’t been taken out of the enclosure and not correctly been put back. Upon completion, we will issue you a certificate that will tell you if your firefighting equipment is in good working order or what you are required to do to bring it up to relevant standards.
