Fire Extinguisher Testing
Pulse Test and Tag can conduct the test of your portable Fire Extinguishers, Fire Blankets, Hose Reels and Hydrants
Properly maintained fire equipment can help save lives and your business.
Fire extinguishers are the fastest way of protecting your business when a fire occurs. Maintenance and regular inspections are very important to ensure that in the case of an emergency the equipment is fully functional.
Extinguisher testing is done in 6-month intervals, by way of a visual inspection of signage, accessibility to the extinguisher, mounting brackets, pressure gauges, safety pin, labels and the security tie. After a passed test has been achieved the service tag is punched with a number referring to the service or inspection carried out.
Pressure testing of extinguishers needs to be carried out every 5 years and the extinguisher contents are replaced at this time.
Majority of fires are first extinguished using a portable fire extinguisher, saving thousands of dollars in saved equipment as well as lives through the availability of having a properly functioning portable fire extinguisher.
Offices & Multi-dwellings require the correct sized and charged extinguishers to be on site in an accessible location. Depending on the size of the office/dwelling, more than one extinguisher may be required and a qualified technician can advise accordingly.
Australian Standard AS: 1851-2005 requires pressure testing of all extinguishers to be performed as required every 5 years from the date of manufacturing.
