Inspection of fire extinguishers
Part of the overall fire protection is the inspection of fire extinguishers. Each company is required to have a fire extinguisher regardless of its size and have to meet all requirements under the Act 246/2001 Coll.
The proper selection and functionality of fire extinguishers
The proper selection of fire extinguishers is very important as well as its functionality. Although you do not manipulate with it for a long time, the regular inspection of imminent danger is necessary, which is indicated in the frequency of periodic inspections and controls.
How often check fire extinguishers?
The fire extinguisher control should be conducted at least once a year, directly at the owner. Otherwise, control can also be carried out by our company Energom projekty a.s., when we send professionally trained specialist who checks the fire extinguisher. When some defect occurs, the fire extinguisher is taken away to carry out pressure tests, repair, or seal the valve and eventually is filled and pressurized. Checks carried out directly on site are very quick.
The fire extinguisher check and insurance
The law determines how often and when to conduct inspections of fire extinguishers in a family house, but it is still important to check the extinguishers at least once a year in our experts´ workshop. The extinguisher is then checked and labeled thoroughly. Finally, you will get an audit report, which is necessary to store until the next check and in case of fire when could be required by the firefighters or the insurance company.
Revision control of fire extinguishers according to type:
The decree of Law determines how often which type of fire extinguisher control. Routine inspections according to the law are conducted annually. In case of extinguisher with filling, types such as water with additives must pass service inspection every three years. The service inspection also carries out periodic pressure testing of container and other inspections and repairs to ensure the safety and functionality of the fire extinguisher. It is an antifreeze water extinguisher with surfactant and foaming agent. For all other types of fire extinguishers, complete inspection audit is mandatory every 5 years. These are primarily powder, snow, foam and halotrone extinguishers.
Audit Report and Label
Inspection control has to contain traceable audit report and a fire extinguisher must be marked with the date of last inspection.
