We Help You Choose
Business owners often have a lot of questions about fire extinguishers – what size and type do I need? How many fire extinguishers should I get, and where should I put them all? Let Guardian Fire’s licensed technicians and knowledgeable staff help you choose the correct size, number and type of extinguishers for your Maryland, Washington, DC or Virginia location. We can save you money by strategically installing new portable fire extinguishers while abiding by the fire code requirements.
Do you need standard ABC fire extinguishers for your office building? How about a special class D fire extinguisher for your chemical laboratory? A K-Guard kitchen class fire extinguisher? Whatever your fire extinguisher needs are, Guardian Fire has you covered!
We Train Your People
It’s one thing to own a fire extinguisher – it’s another thing entirely to know how to use it! To extinguish a fire with a portable extinguisher, a person must be able access to the fire extinguisher, know how to activate the unit and know how to apply the agent effectively – all in the span of a few seconds. Guardian Fire can provide comprehensive onsite training for your group of employees to properly and safely use portable fire extinguishers.
We Keep Your Equipment Inspected & Serviced
We keep your fire extinguishers serviced so they will be ready when you need them. We perform routine fire extinguisher inspection, testing and maintenance. All of our portable extinguisher technicians are trained, tested and licensed to service and recharge portable fire extinguishers.
- Annual Inspections – The NFPA 10 and your local jurisdiction require fire extinguisher inspections, as detailed under REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS on the right.
- 6-Year Maintenance – The fire extinguisher is broken down and checked for damage. The “O” ring and gaskets are replaced and the extinguisher is recharged.
- Hydro-test – Every 12 years the fire extinguisher is broken down and emptied. The cylinder is tested for defects. If the cylinder passes it is recharged with new chemical and put back in service. (Required every 5 years for CO2, Water and K Class fire extinguishers.)
Guardian Fire professionals are ready to support your Maryland, Washington, DC or Virginia organization’s fire protection systems and service requests 24 hours a day. Call now for more information about fire extinguishers.
