Fire Equipment – Sales and Testing

Fire Equipment – Sales and Testing (Extinguishers, Hose reels and Fire Blanket)

All tests are carried out in compliance with Australian Standard:
AS 1851:2005

TVS have the necessary qualifications required by the national standard of training to supply and test, tag and replace fire extinguishers, fire blankets and hose reels.

Did you know?? All extinguishers have to be inspected at six monthly intervals and they are required to be weighed to check they are still full.


Fire Extinguishers installed in all commercial buildings (offices, retail stores, warehouses, factories, etc.) in public buildings (hospitals, schools, universities, theatres, etc) and multi-occupancy residential buildings all need to be regularly inspected and tested. The inspection, test and maintenance regime for fire extinguishers is specified in the Australia Standard AS 1851 Maintenance of Fire Protection Systems and Equipment.

The following provides some guidelines to assist in receiving the correct servicing of fire extinguishers:

Extinguishers need to be replaced or emptied, pressure tested and refilled every five years

  • The tests and intervals are to be recorded on a label or metal tag attached to the unit
  • No other work is required, provided that the visual inspection of the extinguisher shows that it is in a serviceable condition, unless the gauge indicates the unit is under pressure or the weight is too low. Any additional work needed must be approved by the client before being carried out

Extinguishers must however, be replaced or refilled, if only partially discharged, between the five year services.

Fire Extinguishers are designed to have a life cycle of around 10 – 15 years if serviced and maintained properly. Level 1 (six monthly) and Level 2 (annual service) is required to meet regulatory compliance
TVS can supply the necessary fire equipment and signage. All units and signage will be as per Australian Standard.
