Essential fire safety measures (EFSM) need to undergo regular testing to remain compliant. This includes everything- even your fire blankets and fire extinguishers. All fire extinguishers need to be tested and maintained on a six-monthly basis according to Australian Standards. By neglecting to have your equipment maintained at this required frequency, you cannot ensure the effectiveness of your equipment in the event of a fire emergency. This ultimately means you’re liable should anything go wrong and puts people and property at risk.
Australian Standard AS1851 states that every five years (from the manufacture date) portable fire extinguishers are required to be emptied, pressure-tested and refilled. With over 40 years of experience in scheduled fire extinguisher maintenance, Betta Fire Protection’s CFSP’s can assist you with all forms of fire extinguisher services. This includes fire extinguisher testing, maintenance and compliance.
As is with all fire protection equipment, maintenance is crucial to remain compliant. Apart from your regular extinguisher inspection at six-month intervals, every type of fire extinguisher is required to be emptied, pressure-tested and refilled at five-year intervals.
Here at Betta Fire Protection, our fire extinguisher testing cost is affordable and our expert team can ensure your fire extinguisher meets the necessary standards.
