Hose Reels / Hydrants
Blue Shield Fire Protection Ltd specialise in the design, supply, installation, service and maintenance of fire hose reels and fire hydrants for commercial properties throughout the United Kingdom. From new build projects to extensions and alterations.
Hose Reel Maintenance
All too often fire hose reels can be installed and then forgotten about. With years of experience in the fire industry Blue Shield Fire Protection Ltd can ensure your fire hose reels are serviced and well maintained.
Maintenance of hose reels to BS5306: Part1:1976 includes visual checks for leaks and obvious damage and should be carried out regularly. Once a year the hose should be completely run out and subjected to operational water pressure to ensure that the hose is in good condition and that all the couplings are water tight. This thorough service ensures that the hose reel will function properly as and when it may be needed.
Fire Hydrants – Testing and Maintenance
Large premises such as hospitals, universities, shopping centres or holiday parks usually have privately owned fire hydrants installed on site for use by the Fire and Rescue Service in the event of a fire.
It is an employer’s responsibility to ensure these are properly tested and maintained by a competent person.
Blue Shield Fire Protection Ltd operate a team of hydrant technicians who can test and inspect your fire hydrants as part of your annual maintenance procedures.
