Fire Extinguishers ~ Our Shop is certified annually by Warnock Hersey. All Extinguishers are serviced as per NFPA 10.
Fire Extinguishers of many sizes and classes are available for purchase.
We service all sizes and types of Fire Extinguishers, including wheeled units.
Please note that if your extinguisher has a plastic handle, we may not be able to service it. If you are unsure, bring it in.
We will also provide you with a loaner extinguisher while yours is being serviced.
Some of the different services performed on fire extinguishers are as follows:
Annual ~ the annual servicing of a fire extinguisher consists of a visual inspection, to check for shell damage and corrosion. Once this is complete and the shell appears to be in good condition, the hose is removed and checked to ensure proper airflow, the pressure gauge is checked for appropriate pressure, the pull pin is tested to ensure proper operation and a new tamper seal is put in place.
Recharge ~ if for any reason your extinguisher has been discharged, or the pressure gauge is low, we will refill with powder if required and re-pressurize the cylinder.
Every 6 years from the date of manufacture, Fire Extinguishers require specialized testing. These tests alternate every 6 years.
6 year ~ during this test, the powder is removed, valves, head, handle and hose are cleaned and replaced if necessary. Once all of this is complete, new powder is added, the cylinder is re-pressurized and the pull pin and tamper seal are replaced.
Hydrostatic Test & Recharge ~ this test is identical to the 6 year test with one more step. Once emptied, the cylinder is pressurized with water to 3 times it's regular pressure to check for cracks, leaks and damage not visible to the naked eye.
