The newly published British Standard BS 5306-9 incorporates two older standards, outlining all the requirements for the refilling, recharging and repressurisation of portable fire extinguishers. 
BS 5306-3 was a key standard for architects, building owners and fire extinguisher service engineers. It ensures that fire extinguishers are correctly maintained and refilled, as well as ensuring there is adequate fire protection, throughout the building. 
If your fire fighting equipment has been set off, whether in an emergency or by accident, we can refill, repressurise and relocate the extinguishers from whence it came and have it returned to service very quickly, thus ensuring your safety and well-being.  
It is imperative that your equipment is replenished when it has been triggered; it may be the only means of escape and could potentially save lives. 
Once a Fire Extinguisher has been in service for five years or more, it requires an 'Extended Service'; This will entail a discharge test of the Fire Extinguishing Medium to ensure that it would work in the event of a 'real fire' emergency. Once this has been proved to work correctly, we must then inspect the inside of the extinguisher to safeguard against any contamination of the body, the head, or any other part of the fire extinguisher. Following this, the extinguisher can then be refilled and re-pressurised and then go back into service for a further five years. 
We can refubish, refiill, overhaul and recondition all types and sizes of fire fighting equipment to the current British standards BS 5306 : 3 
10 YEAR OVERHAUL SERVICE (this applies to Carbon Dioxide fire extinguishers only) 
A carbon dioxide fire extinguishers requires a discharge test and a complete over-haul, after it has been in service for 10 years, from the initial date of installation. 
An over-haul is a hydraulic test; this means that the body of the extinguisher is filled with water, the extinguisher is then pressured to double it's normal working pressure and then it must survive a 40ft drop test.
