An industrial fire extinguisher is an essential emergency item to have available in any restaurant, school, hospital, or public building. We carry fire extinguishers in many common sizes to meet your needs.
Class A extinguishers will put out fires in ordinary combustibles such as wood and paper.
Class B extinguishers are for use on flammable liquids like gasoline and oil.
Class C extinguishers are suitable for use only on electrically energized fires
Class K extinguishers are designed for use on cooking oils and fats in a commercial kitchen.
Class D extinguishers are designed for use on flammable metals.
CLASS K FIRE EXTINGUISHER
The Class K Fire Extinguisher has been specifically designed to address fires in cooking oils and greases such as animal & vegetable fats. The Class K Fire Extinguisher is required in every commercial kitchen as it is ideally suited to supplement the commercial kitchen fire suppression system.
CARBON DIOXIDE EXTINGUISHERS
A colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive inert gas that is a suitable medium for extinguishing Class B and Class C fires. Liquid carbon dioxide forms dry ice when released directly into the atmosphere. Since the agent is dispensed as a gas/snow cloud, it has a relatively short range of 3ft. to 8ft.
DRY CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHERS
These agents are designed for extinguishment of Class A and Class B fires. They are non-conductors and are approved for use on energized electrical Class C fires. Dry chemical extinguishers have a discharge stream that ranges from 10ft to 30ft depending on extinguisher size.
Dry Chemical extinguishers come in the form of stored pressure canisters, cartridge operated canisters or various wheeled carts.
CLEAN AGENT EXTINGUISHERS
Clean agents are listed for Class A, B and Class C fires, which make them quite suitable for use on fires in electronic equipment. When discharged, the agent is in a combined form of a gas/mist, which is about twice the range of carbon dioxide. Strong air currents may make the extinguishing difficult by causing rapid dispersal of the agent.
