A fire extinguisher is classified according to the type of fire it is effective against. Depending on the type of fire risks your Tauranga property may face, our technicians will recommend an extinguisher to fight one or more of the following fire types:
- Class A Fires – common combustible materials, such as paper, wood, and some plastics
- Class B Fires – flammable or combustible liquids, like oil, oil-based paints, or solvents
- Class C Fires – flammable gases, such as propane, butane
- Class D Fires – combustible metals such as sodium, lithium, or magnesium
- Class E Fires – energised electrical equipment
- Class F Fires – fats and oils used for cooking

Fire Extinguisher Maintenance In Tauranga
Fire extinguishers are pretty strong. However, as time goes by, it’s not uncommon to find that your fire extinguisher has dents, leaks, rust or other environmental damage that can reduce its ability to keep you protected. A damaged fire extinguisher will probably require some off-site work. BCI can provide the fire extinguisher service you need in Tauranga or surrounding areas. We are able to provide fire extinguisher maintenance on your site with minimum disruption to your day. So you know your fire extinguisher will keep you protected at all times.
Fire Extinguisher Recharge In Tauranga
Have you had to use your fire extinguisher lately? It would be best if you had your extinguisher recharged. We can leave you with a loan unit of the same type and size while we take your one with us to refill and recharge.
Fire Extinguisher Hydrostatic Testing In Tauranga
High quality, maintained fire extinguishers are able to remain in service for a rather long time. However, if your fire extinguisher is more than five years old, the NZ standard requires you to have it replaced (if cheaper) or hydro-tested. A hydrostatic test on your fire extinguisher will make sure the cylinder has no cracks, leaks and will remain safe while under pressure. However, if we need to replace your fire extinguishers, that’s no problem. We also provide fire extinguisher replacement throughout Tauranga and the surrounding BOP areas.
Tauranga Fire Extinguisher Sales
As necessary and relatively affordable as fire extinguishers are, a shocking amount of companies do not replace outdated fire extinguishers. Or worse, they may have the wrong type of fire extinguisher for the hazards in their business. Using the wrong kind of fire extinguisher has the unintended potential to amplify fire damage by spreading instead of smothering the source of combustion. Let our technicians evaluate your Tauranga based facility, including the type of fire hazards you may face, and suggest the right fire extinguisher solution for your operations.
