National Fire Extinguisher Servicing Company

Annual fire extinguisher service inspections are a legal requirement within most business premises under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order 2005) and could be also be required for your insurance

Swifts Annual Service:
During a basic annual service, Swifts engineer carries out various procedures on the fire extinguisher depending on its make and type.
Generally, the service includes:
•Checking all fire extinguisher parts such as: valves, safety devices, gauges, and operating mechanisms.
•Checking internally and externally for corrosion
•Checking the weight is within the stated range
•Compiling a maintenance report or `Certificate of Inspection` –
A legal record of the maintenance carried out on the fire extinguishers to be kept by the customer and engineer.


Swifts Extended Service:
Extended services generally involve carrying out a test discharge on the fire extinguisher, checking internal and external parts, then recharging the fire extinguisher for ready for use, if deemed safe by the engineer.
BS 5306 – 3, states that water, foam, powder and wet chemical fire extinguishers are required to have extended services every 5 years.
Co2 fire extinguishers must have a pressure test / Overhaul test every 10 years. We carry out a `service exchange` for co2 fire extinguishers due this test. That is, we exchange your old co2 fire extinguisher for a new or refurbished, tested co2 fire extinguisher.
This is more cost effective as it saves time spent on your premises, prevents a return visit from being necessary and ensures that co2 fire extinguishers are tested and recharged by specialists in certified testing stations.


Safety Signs:
Each fire extinguisher should be accompanied by appropriate safety signage indicating the type of fire extinguisher.
Swift Testing Services stock a wide variety of low cost safety signs.


Wall mounting:
All fire extinguishers should, where possible, Be wall mounted on a suitable bracket or placed on a fire extinguisher stand.
Fire extinguishers should never be used to prop doors open – Especially fire doors which should remain shut unless an automatic closing device has been fitted.
We can provide brackets and wall mount fire extinguishers for a small charge.
