In order to comply with current Health & Safety legislation your fire extinguishers must be serviced and maintained.
The British Standard Code of Practice BS5306 part 3, recommends that your fire extinguishers are serviced at least once annually to ensure that they will function in an emergency. However, in some high-risk situations it could be a requirement of your insurance company, local authority or the fire brigade, that maintenance is carried out at more frequent intervals.
Fire Protection Services carries out maintenance of portable fire equipment in strict accordance with current British Standard BS5306 part 3, the code of practice for the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers. All maintenance work carried out is certificated accordingly after completion. Our engineers are BAFE registered technicians under scheme ST104.
We can offer maintenance contracts. Once a contract is agreed we will schedule your service visits on our database. We will inform you when your next service visit is due and our engineer will call to make a convenient appointment. This alleviates you, the client, from worrying about when your equipment needs servicing thus helping you to comply with current legislation.
Having a service contract with FPS entitles you to our emergency call-out service. Should you need our assistance between service visits all you need do is telephone our office. Calls received out of normal working hours are automatically diverted to our duty engineer. This means that you can contact us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The benefit of this service is that you will always be able to speak to an engineer, not an answering service.
