The range of fire extinguishers we supply will provide many years of reliable fire protection only if properly maintained and regularly serviced by a competent engineer.
Fire Hose Reel Maintenance
All too often fire hose reels can be installed and then forgotten about. With years of experience in the fire industry Aberdeen Alarm Company Ltd can ensure your fire hose reels are serviced and well maintained.
Maintenance of hose reels to BS5306: Part1:1976 includes visual checks for leaks and obvious damage and should be carried out regularly. Once a year the hose should be completely run out and subjected to operational water pressure to ensure that the hose is in good condition and that all the couplings are water tight.
The hose itself needs to be either pressure tested or replaced every five years this thorough service ensures, that the hose reel will function properly as and when it may be needed.
