Fire Extinguisher Service, Refilling, Inspection & Maintenance

Extinguishers Have To Be Inspected Every Six Months.

Armidale Fire & Safety can provide qualified service technicians for fire equipment and fire extinguishers services, inspections, refills or replacements.

In accordance with Australian Standard AS1851 Maintenance of Fire Protection Systems & Fire Equipment, all extinguishers have to be inspected every six months. Fire Extinguishers need to be emptied, pressure tested and refilled every five years. Depending on the type of fire extinguisher, other servicing requirements may be required every 3 to 5 years. Armidale Fire and Safety technicians are certified for a wide range of fire extinguisher servicing requirements.

When an extinguisher has been serviced, a numerical code indicating the type of service performed will be stamped on the yellow metal tag that is attached to the extinguisher. Provided that the visual inspection of the extinguisher shows that it is in a serviceable condition, no other work is required. Fire Extinguishers must be refilled even if only partially discharged.


Two situations that require fire extinguisher refilling or recharge

  • First: If you use a partially filled fire extinguisher then the cylinder will no longer be under full pressure and is of no use when fire protection is needed. Hence the fire extinguisher requires refilling and testing without any delay.
  • Second: According to the statutory framework it’s mandatory to undergo hydrostatic pressure testing of fire extinguishers every 3 years. Fire extinguisher recharging is required after every use and periodically even if it’s not used.

Armidale Fire & Safety service technicians will at all times identify themselves to a member of staff or person responsible for building security, before proceeding to undertake a fire extinguisher service.
