Fire Extinguishers do not have an indefinite life, even if they are never actually used. Their contents can lose pressure, the inside of the canisters are prone to rust and corrosion by liquid contents, and the canister seams can be weakened by continual high pressurization. Seals can deteriorate, valves can stick, and Fire Extinguishers can become damaged, knocked and subsequently dented simply by being part of a building’s fixtures and fittings.
