“Legal requirement of the European Standard EN 1968:2002 (Transportable gas cylinders – Periodic inspection and testing of seamless steel gas cylinders) & EN 1803:2002 (Transportable gas cylinders – Periodic inspection and testing of welded carbon steel gas cylinders)”
All high pressure cylinders used for all the gaseous fire suppression systems are legally required to be pressure tested every 10 years.
Not discounting the Health & Safety implications of this legislation, for many Business Critical operators the key issue remains the fact that their business processes could be highly vulnerable from the threat of fire whilst high pressure cylinders are removed from a fire extinguishing system for testing and inspection.
“It is now the system owner/users responsibility to submit their cylinders for periodic testing as laid down under the standard”
As a result of the this requirement and the impact it will have on our customers and their business, Automatic Fire & Integrated Solutions are delighted to advise that we have implemented a cylinder change out programme designed to minimise any disturbance to our customer business.
Under this change out program our change out team can replace your existing out of date un-certified cylinders with replacement cylinders certified for a further 10 years and re-commission your cylinder bank in one swift visit
The above program is designed to:
• Minimise System Downtime
• Minimise Customer Cost
• Minimise Disturbance to our customer’s business
and leave our customers with a fully certified operational Gaseous Fire Suppression System on completion for a further 10 years.
All works are carried out by fully trained and certified engineers trained specifically to carry out these works safely and professionally.
