Fume Cupboard Testing and Maintenance

Holliday Technical Services the sister company

of HFH provides a full range of fume cupboard

servicing, fume cupboard testing and fume cupboard maintenance services to laboratories, schools, industry

and research in the UK



Holliday Technical Services was established to provide a full servicing and maintenance team to support the growing number of laboratories where installation of fume cupboards and other local exhaust ventilated equipment had been installed by Holliday Fielding Hocking Ltd.

Holliday Technical Services (visit our dedicated website) will ensure all of your servicing needs are carried out to a high standard and in accordance with current UK guidelines.

Unlike many other fume cupboard and locally exhaust ventilated equipment service companies our fume cupboard servicing is carried out by our own team of in-house engineers who are constantly monitored and highly trained.

Run as a separate business with it's own team of dedicated maintenance technicians, HTS offers laboratories in the UK a range of testing options from a basic COSHH testing service through to a comprehensive full service which can be adapted and modified to suit your organisations needs. HTS test to the below UK and European standards:

  • BS EN 1475
  • BS EN 14469
  • BS EN 14644
  • HSG 258
  • BS 7258 Part 3

If you require servicing, testing or maintenance of any make/model of ducted fume cupboard, ductless fume hood, laminar flow cabinet or any other local exhaust ventilated equipment, reach out to HTS for a quotation today.

Our team are ready to provide a swift solution to your testing needs and are backed by over 70 years of technical expertise from the team behind HFH.

Does Your Laboratory Equipment Comply With The Law

It is required by law (under BS7258 and COSHH Regulation 9) that all fume cupboards, fume hoods, fume cabinets and fume extraction systems are serviced within a 14 month period. Regular maintenance is essential not only for legal purposes but to ensure trouble free operation, peace of mind and protection for users and annual testing can be organised with HTS to ensure these deadlines are met.

As an organisation you need to ensure that time is not lost to faulty equipment and by ensuring your equipment is maintained annually accidents can be prevented and your equipment will work more efficiently and last longer.

The Following 21 Points Are Carried Out Where Applicable During An Annual Service Visit

An intermediate 5 point service can be carried out every six months should this be required that covers points 1-5 of the summary below.
