FAQs (8)
Q. Is a magnet provided with the extinguisher?
A.

Yes, when the engineer installs the extinguisher and gives the training on the yearly service he will leave a magnet with each customer.

Q. What happens after I place the order?
A.

We will confirm a date with you for the visit by our certified engineer. The cost for this visit and all the work the engineer does is included in the price you paid for the extinguishers. The engineer will usually bring the extinguishers with him (if not we will send the extinguishers up front). First of all the engineer will check that the extinguisher is adequate for the building and the use. He/she will then install the extinguisher and train you in the simple yearly visual inspection of the extinguisher. You will then receive a certificate to confirm the training and the suitability of the extinguishers installed. You also receive a form to be filled in by you that needs to be sent to your insurance company to inform them about the new maintenance regime. After that all you have to do is carry on with your normal visual inspection required for any extinguishers and the yearly 3 step visual inspection which needs to be recorded in your fire safety log book. No other activity is required for the next ten years.

Q. Why do P50 fire extinguishers not need to be serviced by a 3rd party extinguisher technician?
A.

P50 service-free fire extinguishers are constructed from components that will not corrode. So, unlike traditional stainless-steel extinguishers there is no need to replace parts that may have corroded over the 10-year period.

Q. Who can carry out the annual visual inspection for P50 fire extinguishers?
A.

Anyone in your organisation can complete the annual visual inspection for P50 service-free extinguishers. To ensure that they are competent in this simple process we train your staff as part of our installation package at no extra cost to you. We will issue staff with training certificates.

Want to see what the annual visual inspections entails? Here is a clear video guide that will show you just how easy it is to maintain your P50 extinguishers.

Q. Are service-free extinguishers accepted by insurance companies?
A.

Most major insurance companies have approved P50 service-free fire extinguishers. Insurance companies usually request that extinguishers are checked annually by a competent or responsible person. The guidelines for extinguisher servicing, the BS 5306-3: 2009 standard, also states that the responsible person should maintain the extinguishers. A responsible person is defined as someone who has had the correct training to carry out this annual inspection as outlined by the manufacturer.

The manufacturer gives clear guidance that only an annual visual check is required and as part of our installation package we will train your staff how to do this. We will provide your staff with a training certificate to demonstrate their competency in this process.
