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 fire safety equipment tested 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 testing and tagging, Betta Fire Protection’s CFSP’s can assist you with all forms of fire extinguisher services.
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. This is otherwise known as hydrostatic testing.

At Betta Fire Protection, all of our fire extinguisher technicians have completed the FPAS Inspect & Test qualification. This is voluntary in NSW but we make your safety our priority by guaranteeing our technicians are fully qualified to carry our fire extinguisher testing certification.
Have you used your fire extinguisher in an emergency? Avoid having to buy a new one by getting a fire extinguisher recharge.
Even if the extinguishing agent inside was not completely discharged, the extinguisher still needs to be pressure tested and recharged in order to make sure it’s ready for its next use otherwise the extinguisher may leak and lose all pressure.
Extinguisher recharging will need to be conducted periodically even if the extinguisher hasn’t been used and testing will need to be done to check for any damage or possible depressurization.
As a leading fire safety company in Sydney, we’re the experts in fire extinguisher pressure testing and extinguisher recharges, so get in contact with us today!
