At Fire Protection Consultants Ltd, we supply and service portable fire extinguishers to commercial and domestic properties including factories, schools, offices and shops. Our fire extinguishers are:
All our service engineers are fully trained, qualified and registered with BAFE SP101 / ST104 National Accreditations Service Technician Scheme.
All fire extinguishers should be inspected at least once per year as specified in current British Standard. Our inspection work is carried by qualified and experienced engineers using parts and procedures in accordance with BS5306. On completion a BAFE Certificate and Certificate of Inspection will be issued by the service engineer.
Plus, there is another bonus to having regular inspections: Our on-site inspections provide us with an opportunity to evaluate your safety needs, so we can make recommendations that can keep you safer. And we can spot potential safety issues such as blocked extinguishers or hard-to-reach equipment, so you can make important changes that can decrease your risk of fire-related damage and loss.
The aim of this scheme is to enable organisations requiring fire extinguisher maintenance to meet the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006, to employ a third party certified company and service personnel with recognised competency in fire extinguisher service and maintenance.
Contract Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers incorporating Registered Fire Extinguisher Service Technician Scheme No. SP101/ST104
If you require fire extinguisher maintenance and servicing for your organisation you should use a BAFE Contract Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers incorporating Registered Fire Extinguisher Service Technicians’ SP101/ST104 registered company.
Companies cannot register to this BAFE scheme without at least one technician that has passed one of the recognised exams offered by BAFE, IFEDA or BFC. Technicians cannot register independently – It is a scheme pre-requisite that a technician requiring registration must be employed by an organisation who operate an approved ISO9001 Quality System (to the scope of the BAFE SP101 scheme) from an approved Third Party Certification Body. Also a BAFE registered company must use only BAFE registered Technicians to do this work.
To ensure all registered companies are fully complying with this scheme, BAFE monitors registered companies and number of technicians. If there is evidence of any discrepancies then action will be taken.
