It is a requirement in the UK for portable fire extinguishers to be serviced and maintained to the current standard by a competent person.

At Mrala Systems all our engineers are trained and qualified by the FIA to the BAFE standard and all extinguishers are serviced in accordance with BS5306 part 8.

All work is always carried out by a competent and fully trained service technicians who are constantly trained to ensure they are up to date with changes in legislation to ensure our customer are kept safe and legal at all times.

We pride ourselves in providing a quality and honest  service at a realistic price, the amount of customers we come across who have had the extinguishers serviced, well apparently serviced by some of the less reputable companies where the work has not been carried out correctly as per the current standards.Customers are being charged for replacement extinguisher which are not required.

A 10 year old water or AFFF Foam extinguisher does not have to be replaced , the standards state that they should have a basic service annually and discharge and refill every 5 years, as part of this service a full inspection should carried out to ensure it is serviceable. The extinguisher only requires replacing if it is defective ie damaged, corroded or no longer meets the current standards.

Co2 Extinguisher are required to be stretched tested and powder extinguishers to be refilled which is not that practical on site, so with these extinguishers they would be replaced at 10 years.

Another trick carried out within the industry is to carry out the annual service up to 3 months earlier each year therefore you end up with an additional service visit charge after every 4 year.
