Portable fire extinguishers have been around for several years to provide individuals a defense against small fires. These extinguishers come in different categories based on the type of fire that needs to be fought. The individual can use the extinguisher to either stop the fire completely if small enough or at least have enough time to safely exit the building and call for professional help. One of the types of extinguishers available for use in a commercial setting is the water mist extinguisher.

A commercial kitchen can be a volatile area because of the amount of grease and vapors in one small area. If there is a buildup, fires can easily occur.
When it comes to fire protection within a commercial setting, one of your best defenses is a fire extinguisher. Fire extinguishers can be used to help fight small fires that ignite, or at least provide a defense to allow building occupants to safely exit the building. However, not one fire extinguisher will work on all fires. Certain fuels need specific extinguishers in order to work. In order to ensure your occupants are safe from possible fire threats, you must first understand the categories of different fire extinguishers.
