Servicing Your OMP Fire Extinguisher
Here at Racer Products, we understand the critical role that fire extinguishers play in motorsports. That's why we offer certified servicing for OMP fire extinguishers, ensuring that your safety equipment is maintained to the highest standards.
Let's take a closer look at the important points you need to know about servicing your OMP fire extinguisher and fire extinguishing systems.
1. Importance of Regular Servicing
Servicing your fire extinguisher is not just a matter of compliance; it's a crucial step in ensuring its functionality during an emergency. By having your OMP fire extinguisher serviced at regular intervals, you can:
- Verify the full functionality of the extinguishing system: Regular servicing is the only way to ensure that all components of your OMP fire extinguisher are in proper working order.
- Comply with race regulations: Motorsport extinguishers are required to be serviced every two years. By adhering to these regulations, you demonstrate your commitment to safety and maintain your eligibility for races.
2. Certified Service Points
When it comes to servicing FIA homologated extinguishing systems, it's important to rely on certified service centres. OMP Racing provides a list of authorised service points where you can get your OMP fire extinguisher serviced.

3. Service Intervals and Maintenance
To maintain compliance and ensure the reliability of your OMP fire extinguisher, it's crucial to adhere to the recommended service intervals. The following points will help you understand the service requirements:
- Servicing frequency: Motorsport extinguishers must be serviced every two years. This interval allows for a thorough inspection, maintenance, and refilling, if necessary, to keep the extinguisher in optimal condition.
- Service stickers: After servicing, an official sticker with the service date is affixed to the extinguisher. This sticker serves as proof that the extinguisher has been regularly serviced and is compliant with the required standards. It's a visual reminder of when the next servicing is due.
Remember, the service interval applies regardless of whether the extinguisher has been used or not. If the extinguisher has been discharged or the service interval has expired, it's essential to have it serviced promptly to ensure its effectiveness in case of an emergency.
Servicing your OMP fire extinguisher is not only a matter of compliance but a critical step in maintaining your safety on the track.
