British Standard 5306-3:2000 covers the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers, and recommends that "regular visual inspections of all portable fire extinguishers be carried out by the user or users representative."

RIS Consultants’ technicians are all registered under BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) to install and undertake annual inspections and servicing of portable fire extinguishers. Once your fire extinguishers are installed they must have an inspection / service by a competent person 12 months after installation and then at 12 monthly intervals thereafter.

All extinguishers we supply fully conform to the appropriate British Standards and come with a minimum 12 months manufactures guarantee.
