Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to have my fire extinguisher certified?
The State of Florida requires all commercial fire extinguishers be certified by a state licensed fire extinguisher company. This does not apply to personal or residential fire extinguishers. If properly maintained, your fire extinguisher should operate properly when needed.
How often and why do I need my automatic fire suppression system to be serviced?
NFPA 17A Florida State law requires that all fixed fire suppression systems be serviced on a semi-annual basis, which includes system function test, Fusible link replacement, and periodically cartridge replaced.
How soon can I get service from your company?
Normally within a 24-48 hours notice. If you are a current customer, we do offer 24/7 emergency service.
Do I need to recharge my fire extinguisher after use?
Once a dry chemical fire extinguisher is discharged the valve stem seals get coated with a chemical, and there is a 95% chance it will lose pressure. The chemical will stay in, but there is no expellant gas to discharge it. There is nothing worse than needing a fire extinguisher and having one that doesn’t work
How many fire extinguishers do I need?
For all commercial business actual state codes vary upon hazards and room dimensions. A good rule of thumb is one 5 lb ABC fire extinguisher will cover 2500 sq. f. with no more than 75 feet travel distance. This means you should be able to stand anywhere in your building and not have to walk more than 75 feet to get to the fire extinguishers.
Can I buy my fire extinguishers at Home Depot?
Yes for residential or personal use they are fine. Commercial fire extinguishers need certification tags. So any savings is lost when the service company has to come to your business and certify the fire extinguishers. Our fire extinguishers are tagged, delivered and installed at the proper locations and heights to meet all state codes.
