A Wide Variety of Types and Ratings
When purchasing a fire extinguisher, there are many factors to consider. Our fire extinguisher services comprise maintenance and testing for all types of extinguishers. These devices are rated into different classes for specific uses.
- Class A: Used for trash fires, wood, and clothing
- Class B: Used for fires involving gas, oil, propane, butane, and petroleum
- Class C: Used for electrical fires
- Class K: Used for kitchen fires
There are also several different types of fire extinguishers including:
- Stored-Pressure Water Portable – ideal for Class A fires
- Clean Agent Hand Portable – uses a gaseous element to extinguish a fire with minimal damage to the surrounding area
- Dry Chemical Hand Portable – uses a dry chemical to smother; are the most common form of fire extinguisher
- Wet Chemical Hand Portables – suffocates grease fires; ideal for kitchen environments
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to fire extinguishers. With our fire extinguisher services, we can help you identify which type and class you need for each area. Our staff is not only friendly, but every member of our team is also a trained expert when it comes to these fire protection devices.
While fire extinguishers may seem durable, they can occasionally suffer bumps, leaks, dents, and even rust. This can negatively impact its ability to operate correctly and keep you and your building safe. If you see any defects on your fire extinguishers, it’s best to let us check them out.
Don’t forget, if you’ve recently had to discharge your fire extinguisher, you should get it recharged immediately. This is one piece of equipment you want ready to go at a moment’s notice because you never know when you might need it.
Depending on the age of your fire extinguisher, it may need to be tested or replaced. According to the National Fire Protection Association, if your device is more than 12 years old, then you need to have it hydro-tested. This test can ensure that the outer shell of your extinguisher has no leaks, cracks, or any other issues that may cause it to malfunction.
