Service

We’re not just your average safety store! Our experts know what you’re looking for and we can show you how to use it—properly. We also recertify what we sell. Check out our list below of what services we provide and what we can recertify in our shop.


SRL Repair & Recertification—Tripod, Lanyard & Harness Inspection

We are DBI Sala, Protecta, and MSA certified. We can repair and recertify most common DBI Sala SRL’s, Protecta Rebel SRL’s, and MSA latchway SRL models of self retracting lifelines. That means all work and repairs are done in house. We also inspect harnesses, lanyards, winches and tripods. Our experienced technician will ensure that your fallblock, lanyard, tripod, or harness meets CSA standards when it leaves our shop.

Gas Monitor Repair, Testing & Calibration

You expect to receive accurate performance from your detectors and monitors so you can work reliably and trust your readings. We are here to make sure they work for you as expected and we will take it upon ourselves to visit your site to ensure that happens. We can service, repair and calibrate all varieties of gas monitors such as MSA, BW, and Dräger. We will get yours working properly, quickly.

Breathing Apparatus & Cylinder Maintenance

We recertify most manufacturers MSA, Dräger, 3M-Scott, and Survivair both self-contained (SCBA) and supplied-air (SABA). We clean and sanitize facepieces, NIOSH test the regulators (recommended annually) and inspect the harnesses. We clean the cases and change out cylinder air with grade-E certified breathing air. We will do eddy current tests on the cylinders with our Visual Plus 3 and are also one of the few shops in Calgary equipped with a 10,000 psi high-pressure hydro-tester.

Respirator Fit Testing & Repair

Fit testing is essential for a respirator to provide protection. Facepieces for all respirators are normally available in a range of sizes to fit the majority of workers. However, it is sometimes difficult to get a tight fit with workers for a wide variety of reasons. We will work with you to ensure that the seal is not compromised by many common and some not-so-common factors including jaw movements and eyewear while still being sensitive to the wearers comfort level. We will save you time, and give you the knowledge and confidence that will save your life.

High Pressure Vessel Hydro Testing & Refilling

Big or small, we test them all! We will recertify most types of high pressure cylinders and vessels . We do high pressure hydro testing on most common types of high pressure cylinders. Our equipment can test pressures up to 10,000 psi. Orion Safety Equipment is a Transport Canada approved testing facility. We can also refill your high pressure vessels with breathing air, oxygen or nitrogen. Please phone us if you have any questions about this service.

We can also hydro test, inspect, and recertify most common commercial use fire hoses.
