New extinguisher commisioning

New Extinguisher Commissioning

Here is an extinguisher that was installed by another company 12 months ago. When a new extinguisher is supplied, it should be commissioned. This is basically an initial service.

So the extinguishers should be checked for damage, weighed, the gauge should be test and the pin pulled to ensure that it can be used.

As you can see the original manufacturers gauge dot is still on the extinguisher. Which means the gauge was not tested and the black plastic clip that you see me snap off is the original transport clip that would’ve been fitted by the manufacturer. This extinguisher was not commissioned correctly.

Call us today if you are unsure whether your extinguishers are being checked properly. 01922 862207
