How does it work?
Our fully qualified engineers will visit your premises and service all of your fire extinguishers located around site up to BS 5306-8:2003 standards. If any faults or parts are required, these will be fitted and / or replaced to ensure you remain protected at all times.
Once all of your extinguishers have been serviced to standards, we will issue you with a detailed report along with a list of all of your equipment. With over 20 years experience, we make sure that you're in the best hands and experience minimal disruption.
