Fire Hose Reel Maintenance



Fire hose reels have become less common in recent years and Fire Authorities are recommending that they be removed and replaced with alternative means of fire fighting such as portable fire extinguishers, however in some situations fire hose reels remain the only option. Where this is the case, they still must be maintained to ensure that they remain in an operable condition and can be relied upon in the event of fire.

Servicing & Maintenance


Servicing of fire hose reels is governed by BS-EN-671/3 and this requires that during the service a flow rate test and a pressure test is conducted and recorded on a service label attached to the reel. In addition the hose itself must be pressure tested every five years. We are happy to service all types of fire hose reels and can obtain spares from most manufacturers that are still producing them. M-Fire can service, maintain, repair, replace and install fire hose reels. It can even be done at the same time as other fire safety systems such as fire alarms and fire extinguishers saving you money.

De-Commissioning and Removal


Once the removal of hose reels has been recommended by a fire risk assessment or the Fire Authority, M-Fire can de-commission and remove them from your site. This will involve isolating the water supply to the reel, removing the entire hose reel assembly including all signage that relates to the hose reel. The water supply pipe will then be capped off and made safe. We will then dispose of the fire hose reel by recycling the materials and provide a certificate stating that the reel has been removed from site. We will even make good any walls that are left damaged by the mounting bracket(s) (excluding paint/wallpaper).

Can I Keep fire hose reels for other means such as washing cars/vans?


Generally fire hose reels are fed from a separate water supply for fire fighting and are not usually metered. If you were to use a fire hose reel for means other than fire fighting, testing, or training, you may be breaking the law (Water Industry Act 1991) if the reel is not metered. If you wish to use de-commissioned fire hose reels for other means, you should contact your Water Provider for advice as they may be able provide a water meter for it and charge you accordingly.
