We are hydrostatic testing experts. We have the capability to test almost all cylinders and with our attention to detail, you can be sure that your cylinder will meet US regulations or exceed them!
Common Types of Testing
A hydrostatic test ensures the fire extinguisher tank will hold pressure for an installed unit in New York. It determines how strong its container is against possible failures; this evaluation helps make sure you never need to replace your current one with another brand because they weren’t as tough!
Why Hydrostatic Test?
- If the fire extinguisher has corrosion, abrasion, dents or weld damage
- The agent cylinder must be hydrostatically tested every 6-12 years as indicated to the test pressure indicated on the nameplate.

Types of extinguishers
Cabinets help protect the fire extinguisher from damage and ensure that it is always ready to go. Cabinets also help protect the extinguisher from UV rays and chemical exposures that can diminish their effectiveness. This is particularly helpful when the extinguisher is placed outdoors.
OSHA and NFPA do not require storage of fire extinguishers within a fire extinguisher cabinet. However, there are regulations within some municipalities and the Americans with Disabilities Act you may need to follow. If applicable, you must ensure it’s at the proper height, does not protrude more than four inches from the wall, and more.
Modern fire extinguisher cabinets can be made from wood, plastic, metal, or glass. However, most newer systems incorporate plastic rather than glass to reduce injury risk when removing the extinguisher from the cabinet.
Fireproof cabinets are great for protecting the materials inside from fire and containing any accidents that may happen. They can be made out steel or stainless steel, depending on what you want them to do best with your home or office’s contents in mind!
The UFC requires that every cabinet with flammable materials have self-closing doors to prevent fire exposure. This is a requirement in most States and local codes as well, making it important for the safety of all those living or working within your building’s footprint
If you’re looking for a cabinet that can keep your belongings safe, then this is just what you need! Cabinets must be double walled with one and half inch airspace. Joints are riveted or welded shut to make them tight enough so no spilled liquid seeps out of the door when it’s opened partially into an upright position on its hinges; three-point latches work best here too–but any type will do as long they close firmly in place without feeling flimsy against fingers.
The best way to extinguish a fire is with water! It will douse any class A fires, including paper and wood. If you have Class B flammable liquids such as alcohol or oil on hand then use something like sand which acts similarly but won’t harm anything else
