Fire Extinguishers Sales, Service, Maintenance, Testing & Repairs

Whether you bring it to us or we come to you, Fire Extinguishers are an important part of any building's lineup of safety equipment. It’s crucial that your Extinguishers stay in proper working condition.
Annual Maintenance & Service
  • While on site, we ensure all Fire Extinguishers are in their designated places and that there are no obstructions or visibility concerns.
  • We inspect each Fire Extinguisher for evidence of physical damage, corrosion, leakage and clogged nozzles.
  • Fullness – confirmed by weighing or lifting
  • Upon completion we ensure the pressure gauges are indicating the proper range. We make sure all safety seals are intact and the new service tag indicates the correct date.
Six Year Maintenance
  • Every six years, any stored pressurized fire extinguisher that requires a 12-year hydrostatic test (e.g. dry chemical extinguishers) must be emptied and properly serviced.
  • In addition to the above listed services performed during an annual service, at this time the extinguisher is torn down and rebuilt using all new valve stems and o-rings.
Hydrostatic Testing
  • Fire Extinguishers are required to be pressure tested using water or some other noncompressible fluid to help prevent unwanted failure or rupture of the cylinder. This is called hydrostatic testing.
  • This includes both an internal and external examination of the cylinder. Pressurized water, carbon dioxide and wet chemical extinguishers are hydrostatically tested every five years. Dry chemical extinguishers are hydrostatically tested every 12 years.
