Unlike many other fume cupboard and locally exhaust ventilated equipment service companies, our servicing is carried out by our own team of in-house engineers who are constantly monitored and highly trained. We carry our fume cupboard maintenance and servicing to BS 7258 part 3, BS EN14175 and current COSHH regulations.

Does your laboratory equipment comply with the law?

It is required by law (under BS7258 and COSHH Regulation 9) that all fume cupboard, fume hoods, fume cabinets and fume extraction systems are serviced on an annual basis. Regular maintenance is essential not only for legal purposes but to ensure trouble free operation, peace of mind and protection for users.

  • Quality organizations need to ensure that time is not lost to faulty equipment.
  • Accidents can be prevented by regular preventative maintenance.
  • Well maintained equipment will work more efficiently and last longer.

Holliday Technical Services offers a basic COSHH testing service through to a comprehensive maintenance and servicing agreement to organisations with installed fume cupboards and local exhaust ventilation systems. This facility can be modified and adapted to suit clients' individual requirements.

The Maintenance and service agreement comprises of:

  • 21-Point annual service visit.
  • 5-Point Intermediate service visit at 6 months (optional).
  • Priority rapid call out service in case of running failure at any time (optional).
