Fire extinguishers need to work straight away when needed, so it is vital they are regularly checked and serviced. Fire extinguishers are pressurised vessels that can burst when corroded or damaged and have been known to cause serious injury and even death.

The Regulatory Fire Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 states that fire fighting equipment “must be subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.”

At Hartson Fire we have a proven track record in delivering regular servicing and maintenance of our customers’ fire extinguishers. We offer a fixed rate call out charge, depending on location and we can provide a complete price list upfront. Our servicing costs include all replacement parts, additional work and replacement fire extinguishers. Our engineers are employed directly by us and don’t work on commission.

Through state-of-the art software, we have in place alerts which advise us when customers’ equipment is due to be serviced or replaces.
