INSPECTION & TESTING of Fire Safety Equipment & Systems
Inspection, service and maintenance of fire protection equipment is carried out in accordance with a variety of Australian Standards, to ensure the fire safety systems and equipment are installed in your building, business and plant are functioning as designed. The routine inspection intervals of fire safety systems and equipment general include monthly, six monthly and annual in most cases.

Pressure Testing & Recharge of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers can be a vital life and property saving device which is important to ensure will work. Fire extinguishers have a life cycle of 10 -15 years when maintained correctly and part of this maintenance schedule is a (5) five yearly pressure test and recharge in accordance with Australian Standards 1851. The date in which this is determined is from the date of manufacture, which is stamped on the cylinder. The fire extinguisher is removed from site, with a loan unit being left in its place for the duration of pressure testing. Pressure testing and recharging are carried out, with the extinguisher being discharged, an internal inspection and cylinder pressure test is completed before cleaning, replacing valves and seals, refilling and re-charging. Once this is completed a renewal date is stamped into the extinguisher, which gives another 5 years of service. The extinguisher is then returned to your building or business.
Why is pressure testing a better option than buying new?
- It is better for the environment, just like any other recycling initiative.
- Pressure testing of fire extinguisher allows existing units to be cost effectively refurbished and given a new 5 year lease of life, which is the same as a new unit.
- In most cases the cost of pressure testing is much less than buying a new unit.
- The disposal cost of unwanted extinguishers is very costly both in terms of money and the environment.
