In today's fast-paced and safety-conscious world, the importance of well-maintained fire extinguishers cannot be overstated. Fire extinguishers are a critical line of defense in mitigating fire-related incidents and ensuring the safety of both people and property. Recognizing this paramount need, Colorado Safety Supply Company has established the Mobile Safety Unit, specializing in performing thorough onsite extinguisher inspections.

The Mobile Safety Unit at Colorado Safety Supply Company delivers expert fire safety services directly to your location. Whether you are a business owner, property manager, or responsible for a large industrial site, our Mobile Safety Unit handles all your fire extinguisher maintenance needs on-site, ensuring minimal disruption to your operations.

The Importance of Regular Fire Extinguisher Inspections

Fire extinguishers are essential safety devices that require regular inspections and maintenance to ensure they are in optimal condition and ready for use in case of an emergency. Over time, extinguishers can lose pressure, experience mechanical damage, or develop other issues that may compromise their effectiveness. Regular inspections are crucial for identifying and addressing these issues before they become critical.

Comprehensive Onsite Inspections

Our Mobile Safety Unit conducts meticulous checks to ensure your fire extinguishers meet all safety standards and are fully operational. Here's what our comprehensive onsite inspections include:

  1. Visual Inspection: A thorough visual examination of each extinguisher to check for signs of damage, corrosion, or leakage. This step ensures that the extinguisher's body, handle, and hose are intact and free from any visible defects.

  2. Pressure Check: Verification of the pressure levels of each extinguisher to ensure they are within the manufacturer’s recommended range. An extinguisher with low or high pressure can be ineffective or even dangerous during an emergency.

  3. Weight Verification: Checking the weight of the extinguisher to ensure it matches the specified weight on the label. Significant weight loss can indicate a leak or other internal issues.

  4. Nozzle and Hose Inspection: Examination of the nozzle and hose for blockages, cracks, or other damage that could impede the flow of the extinguishing agent.

  5. Seal and Tamper Indicator: Ensuring the safety seal and tamper indicator are intact. A broken seal can indicate that the extinguisher has been used or tampered with.

  6. Label and Instructions: Verification that the label and operating instructions are legible and up-to-date. Clear instructions are crucial for proper use during an emergency.

  7. Recharge and Refill Services: If any extinguisher is found to be undercharged or depleted, our technicians can perform recharge and refill services on-site, ensuring your extinguishers are ready for immediate use.

  8. Record Keeping: Detailed records of each inspection, including the date of inspection, findings, and any maintenance performed. This documentation helps you stay compliant with safety regulations and provides a clear maintenance history.
