Product Description

Many of our customers use Spiroscape as a safe means of escape from contaminated atmospheres. It is fast to deploy, safe for long term storage in a variety of conditions and it is relatively free of expensive maintenance – most spare parts requirements being easily fitted by the user.

In fact, it is the most popular such equipment in our regular hire-list.

If you purchase breathing apparatus; you must be aware that the CoSHH Regulations require your equipment (and any other breathing apparatus or re-usable RPE) to be tested functional at least monthly and otherwise to be tested/serviced according to the approvals granted to it and the test protocol under which it has been approved.

Records of inspection must be maintained for at least five years following the final use of such kit and it is prudent that a record of use is maintained; to help conform with the health (CoSHH) exposure records required, under the Health & Safety at Work Regulations.

As you know, when we hire out equipment, we maintain such details on behalf of our clients (and for our own records). We keep records, confidentially, on your behalf, for at least five years after contracts have ended; so that appropriate reference may be afterwards made.

We keep such records, too, where we are contracted for regular maintenance services on behalf of customers who own RPE. Our standard record sheet allows quick, simple completion and electronic filing, after the service period in question and many customers use this, for convenience.

Each year, performance must be checked, the required flow-rates for the Spiroscape properly confirmed and components tested all functional. Equipment must be clean, stored dry and dust free and defective or worn components replaced in due form.

Every five years, the kit needs complete disassembly and its air cylinder must be proof tested. Test dates, stamped on the cylinder indicate due periods and identify the manufacturer, the UKAS test station and its serial number.

To remove the onus from you and to improve service convenience; our annual, service exchange scheme affords you a fixed price, for up-to-date, properly functioning and recorded equipment - and never the need to pay for expensive cylinder testing and replacement parts (not including accidental, or malicious damage).

Copies of records are sent electronically to you, so that these can be incorprated in to your own audit record. Exchanged units are serviced from our premises and we remind you, a month before service falls due. The price includes all due cylinder testing, replacement and maintenance items, service record maintenance and a twelve month warranty mark: subject to our published terms of business.

To engage this service, we need your kit serial number and type and suitable visit arrangements.  An annual fee per kit is charged: net of carriage (where required) but, usually, we will plan with you, a scheduled service visit to your premises.

The service is subject to our service and hire terms. Notification of price changes will be given at least one month before payment is due. Payment must be made to us, in advance of the service year, from the date of invoice. We must assess the condition of your SDBA suitable for contracts to be undertaken. Should equipment be considered unacceptable, upon instruction, we will restore your equipment subject to our usual charges, where practicable; prior to engaging service exchange agreements. In instances where equipment is not deemed suitable and payment for the first year's service exchange has been pre-paid, customers will have free option for a full refund. Customers may cancel Service exchange agreements at any time during the maximum of five years' duration without penalty, providing we have acknowledged written notice of cancellation at least one month prior to the next, scheduled service.
