Fire Extinguishers Maintenance

Synergy Trades Group specialises in supplying, installing, and servicing a wide range of fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, and hose reels and providing fire protection services for commercial businesses.

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.

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.

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