Ensure that your fire extinguisher is in working order and meets all legal requirements

BAFE SP203-1 registered organisation

It is a legal requirement to ensure your fire extinguishers are maintained appropriately so that they are ready to use in case of a fire. A fire extinguisher is an integral piece of life-saving equipment and can prevent a small fire from spreading into a major incident, which could destroy your business. A correctly serviced fire extinguisher can protect your business, assets, and employees.

Mayfair Fire & Security is a BAFE SP203-1 registered organisation, meaning we have proven competent in the design, installation, commissioning, and/or maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm system services.

How often should fire extinguishers be serviced? 

In accordance with fire extinguisher regulations, extinguishers need to be serviced once a year by a competent person (someone with the relevant BAFE qualifications or similar.) All our engineers at Mayfair Fire & Security are BAFE certified and have the necessary training, enabling them to provide a servicing certificate for your records.

What happens during a fire extinguisher service?

Our engineers will check the following:

  • Is the extinguisher in date?
  • Is it in visibly good condition?
  • Does it appear to have been tampered with?
  • Is the weight and/or pressure, correct?
  • Does the pin work?
  • Is the hose in good working order?
  • Are the instructions on the extinguisher legible?

At the end of the service, our engineers will tell you which extinguishers need replacing or advise on additional extinguishers you may need to bring you in line with regulations.
