Onguard Fire Protection provides fire extinguisher service and maintenance across the West Midlands and Warwickshire for all kinds of workplaces. Our engineers can service virtually every type of fire extinguisher and carry a large range of service exchange and new extinguishers so that your premises are never under‑protected.
There are a wide variety of portable fire extinguishers available, based on the type of fire they will be fighting. These differ by the extinguishing agent they expel onto a fire; the main types of extinguisher are foam, CO2, dry powder and foam.
We have enough confidence in our products to back them with a five year guarantee. This means
that if any extinguisher becomes defective due to faulty materials of workmanship within five years from the date the extinguisher first went into service, we will repair or, at our option, replace it free of charge. This is provided that the extinguisher is serviced from new in accordance with BS 5306:Pt 3 by one of our engineers. This guarantee does not cover defects caused by accident, misuse, neglect or unsuitable environmental conditions and excludes spares.
As well as making a provision for fire extinguishers, all efficient fire extinguisher maintenance and servicing should be in accordance with BS 5306-3 2017 and part 8 2012. This is a legal obligation and falls under the Fire Safety Order of 2005 and is outlined in article 17 of the Order. It will also keep your equipment in good working order and make sure they are always located in the correct places within your environment.
