Sunshine Coast Fire Protection

Protect Your Business

Every different type of fire requires a different type of extinguisher, as do different buildings and locations. Fire extinguishers are one of the most important tools available in the fight against small fires. Their importance and efficacy cannot be understated: an estimated 90% of fires are stopped using extinguishers before they have the opportunity to grow and deal more destruction. 

Because these are so effective, it is critical that they are properly maintained so that they can be used efficiently at a moment’s notice. But maintenance is not a simple task: it requires vigilant checks from professionals, and those checks must be conducted in accordance with regulations set out by the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008.

Our fire extinguisher testing service includes a data management system that takes care of your fire protection maintenance records. Your maintenance history will be easily accessible so that you can ensure timely testing and refilling of all your fire extinguishers. We provide each of our clients with a document that details the status of each device we test. Each item on the report corresponds to the fire extinguisher tagging our technicians conduct on site.

Fire extinguishers, fire blankets & fire hose reels are required to be serviced every six (6) months as per Australian Standard 1851-2012. In addition, pressure testing is required at 5 year periods on all types of extinguishers.  Your fire hydrants and hose reels are subject to both regulatory requirements and insurance compliance conditions. Synergy Trades Group has the experience and expertise to deliver quality fire hydrant pressure testing and hydrant flow tests in accordance with Australian Standards AS1851 and AS2441. Should you be in the design stage of a new building or facility, Synergy Trades Group can provide design specifications that meet AS2419.1.

Synergy Trades Group begins the testing process with an analysis of your existing facilities and services with minimal disruption to your workplace. A technician will attend at a specified time to establish the correct functioning of your equipment.  This is determined via a series of diagnostic tests resulting in a decision as to whether your fire hydrants and fire hoses comply with Australian standards.

We can schedule your regular 1, 3, 5 and 6 yearly inspections or tailor a testing regime that delivers additional protection at yearly intervals.

Fire extinguishers are vital to control the spread of fire in an emergency situation and are required by law to be installed in Queensland workplaces. Many businesses employ our services for periodic fire extinguisher testing to ensure compliance and peace of mind.

According to the AS1851, fire extinguisher test and refill services should occur at the following intervals:

All portable and wheeled fire extinguishers need to be tested every 6 months.

Pressure testing and refills should be carried out at least once every 5 years.

Records of the tests and their dates should be kept on the metal tag attached to each extinguisher. The fire extinguisher tag should only be distributed by a licensed individual.  

Synergy Trades Group will check for defects or imperfections in the cylinder lining, as well as any corrosion that might indicate the need for a replacement cylinder. We will perform thorough inspection and testing procedures according to the current Australian standards.  Our staff follow a strict checklist when assessing the functionality of each item. The following items cover the checks our technicians perform before applying fire extinguisher service tags:

  • Accessibility
  • Anti-tamper device
  • Exterior & interior
  • Service tag
  • External damage
  • External corrosion
  • Outlet hose assembly
  • Pressure indicator
  • Contents full charge
  • Signage
  • Support bracket
