FIRE EXTINGUISHER MAINTENANCE

Fire extinguishers are amongst the most effective and economical methods for protecting your property from fire damage. Many fires start small, and can often quickly be extinguished using the appropriate type of fire extinguisher. This proactive action can conserve individuals and residential or commercial property from damage.

Fire Systems NZ provides sales, service and evaluation of fire extinguishers of all types throughout New Zealand. Our skilled technicians can inspect, service, or suggest and provide the proper size and type for every single particular area and application throughout your facility. Whether you’re operating a business cooking area and the inherent possibility of grease fires, a manufacturing plant with the capacity for electrical or chemical combustion, or simply a workplace or apartment in need of affordable fire suppression choices, we can equip you appropriately, and keep your equipment after that.

New Zealand Fire extinguishers are classified according to the type of fires they work against. Depending upon the type of fire dangers your home may deal with, our service technicians will suggest an extinguisher to fight one or more of the following fire types:

Class A Fires– typically carbon-based materials such as paper, wood or textiles.
Class B Fires– flammable or combustible liquids, such as petrol, diesel or oils., or alcohols
Class C Fires– flammable gases
Class D Fires– flammable metals like sodium, lithium, or magnesium
Class E Fires– electrically energised equipment
Class F Fires– cooking oils and fats

FIRE EXTINGUISHER SERVICE, REPAIR WORK & RECHARGING

In addition to regular testing and inspections, your fire extinguishers might need repair work or recharging. We come prepared to complete these tasks for you while performing on-site evaluations, so there is no downtime in ensuring your property’s extinguishers stay completely operational.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER TESTING & INSPECTIONS

In the event of a fire, it is vital that your fire extinguishers are ready to carry out their purpose. Regular servicing and assessment is the only way to be particular. Our service technicians can perform a visual and physical evaluation of the extinguisher and update the essential documents at the required regular intervals.

All fire extinguishers need a yearly evaluation. Throughout this evaluation, our skilled technicians will thoroughly take a look at each extinguisher to figure out if any condition exists that might restrain its operation or whether the device is physically harmed in any way that would need repair or replacement. Every five years, pressurised fire extinguishers require more substantial testing, which includes, to name a few procedures, dismantling the extinguisher for internal assessment and recharging the gadget. Hydrostatic testing must also be completed at five-year intervals.

As essential, yet relatively economical as fire extinguishers are, an unexpected variety of services do not change out-of-date fire extinguishers. Alternatively, they may have the wrong kind of fire extinguisher for their application. Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher has the unintended potential to magnify fire damage by spreading instead of suffocating the source of combustion. Let our professionals assess your facility, consisting of the type of fire threats you may face, and suggest the right fire extinguisher option for your operations.
