Annual Fire Extinguisher Inspection, Service, and Maintenance

At Safeguard-Wilgus Fire, we make sure your fire extinguishers are expertly serviced and ready at all times. Plus, we make sure your business is in compliance with the Local California AHJs and fire codes.

Six-Year Maintenance

A Portable Fire Extinguisher’s Maintenance Interval Requirements.
Each fire extinguisher (per code) shall be inspected monthly (This can be performed in-house by one of your employees.). Every fire extinguisher (per code) shall have an annual maintenance and service (performed by a certified technician – Safeguard and Wilgus Techs are certified!) and dry chemical fire extinguishers that require a twelve-year hydrostatic test shall have a six-year maintenance performed every six years. This is an external and internal examination of the portable fire extinguisher cylinder and its components.

Twelve-Year and Five-Year Hydrostatic Testing

Depending on the type of portable fire extinguisher, a 12-year or 5-year Hydrostatic Test shall be performed. First, the fire extinguisher cylinder is inspected internally and externally. Second, the fire extinguisher cylinder is filled with water. And third, a pressure test is performed on the portable fire extinguisher cylinder to ensure that it does not leak or rupture. We also check the fire extinguisher components too. Wilgus Fire Control and Safeguard Fire Protection are certified retest facilities.

Restaurant Fires Have Slowly Started To Decline…

Plus, the current Restaurant Fire System Technology has increased performance standards that extinguish fires rapidly and reduce the chance for a fire to reignite. Since most restaurants have fire sprinkler systems, restaurant fire systems, hand portable fire extinguishers, restaurant exhaust cleaning, and employee fire extinguisher training, Restaurants are protected better than ever before.

With thousands of service and design hours, you can sleep comfortably knowing your Fire Sprinkler System that was designed and/or serviced by Safeguard-Wilgus Fire will perform properly in the event of a fire.

We service, design, and install fire sprinkler systems for all types of structures. The most common are office complexes, industrial warehouses, retail locations, manufacturing facilities, churches, apartments, and nursing homes/ senior assisted living.

Wet Fire Sprinkler Systems

The Wet Fire Sprinkler System: The most dependable and simplistic fire sprinkler system. The piping of a Wet Sprinkler System contains water under pressure. When a sprinkler head in the fire system is activated, water will instantly start flowing and the fire sprinkler system will begin to extinguish the fire. The Wet Fire Sprinkler System is used for retail locations, storage areas, manufacturing facilities, office complexes, and apartment/condo buildings.

Dry Fire Sprinkler Systems

The Dry Fire Sprinkler System: If there’s a potential for FREEZING, the Dry Fire Sprinkler System is the best choice. In a dry system, compressed air fills the piping network. When a sprinkler head is activated, the compressed air flows out of the piping network and water starts to spray from the sprinkler head. This is the perfect solution for parking garages, loading docks, warehouses, commercial freezers, and attic space.

Deluge Fire Sprinkler Systems

The Deluge Fire Sprinkler System: Quick response, total coverage of a designated area. In a Deluge Sprinkler System, ALL of the sprinkler heads are open. The piping network is not filled with water. When a heat sensor is triggered, a valve opens, and water starts flowing. The Deluge System is used for unique hazards like oil and chemical storage areas.

PreAction Fire Sprinkler Systems

The PreAction Fire Sprinkler System: A good solution for server rooms and sensitive electronic equipment. Wait! Hold on!! That’s water and ELECTRICITY? In a PreAction System, the piping network is pressurized with air. When the PreAction Fire Sprinkler System is triggered, electrical equipment and computers will close down processes and turn off before water starts to flow. This is the reason your electronic devices will not be destroyed.

Foam Sprinkler Systems

The Foam Sprinkler System: Designed for special hazard scenarios. A military aircraft hangar is an example. When a foam system discharges there is a mix of water and low expansion foam concentrate. These systems are best for high challenge fires.

Water Mist Fire Sprinkler Systems

The Water Mist Sprinkler System: This is an alternative to CO2 Fire Suppression Systems. The Water Mist System is a great option for occupied locations that have sensitive electronics. They are commonly used to protect combustion turbines.
