Fire Extinguisher Maintenance

Fire extinguishers are pretty durable. However, this is not always true –you may find that your fire extinguisher has bumps, dents, leaks or rust that can impair its ability to keep you safe at all times. If you notice a defect on your fire extinguisher, call UCD! We can provide fire extinguisher maintenance that’s as basic or as advanced as you need to make sure your fire extinguisher will keep you safe at all times.

Fire Extinguisher Hydro-testing

Fire extinguishers should last a very long time, but let’s face it –nothing’s perfect. If your fire extinguisher is more than 12 years old, the NFPA and local authorities require you to have it hydro-tested or replaced. A fire extinguisher hydro-test will make sure the shell of your fire extinguisher has no cracks or leaks that can cause it to malfunction when you need it most. If it turns out we need to replace your fire Extinguishers, that’s no problem!

Extinguisher Types and Usage

Foam Extinguishers

Foam fire extinguishers are very versatile and can be used to provide protection against both Class A and Class B fires, so they can be installed in a variety of locations that are at risk of material fires, as well as flammable liquid fires. The foam they release is also non- conductive, so it lowers the risk of electric shock if the fire contains electrical equipment.

The foam is used to effectively suffocate fire, by sealing the surface of burning materials or objects, and smothering it. This also cools the surface of the fire and prevents any stray materials from scattering and starting secondary fires elsewhere.

Our team have years of experience installing and maintaining foam fire extinguishers throughout UAE. So whether you need us to assess the suitability of your current protection measures, or need your fire extinguishers upgrading, you can rely on our team to prioritize your fire safety and recommend the ideal extinguishers for your premises.
