The Importance of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers are required by law in commercial buildings for several great reasons. While sprinkler and fire suppression systems work wonders in putting out fires, they are best for fires that are already large. Fire extinguishers put out flames well before an overhead fire protection system or the fire department is required, saving time, costs, energy, property, and lives. It is estimated that fire extinguisher use eliminates over 80% of fires yearly in the United States without the need for other measures. Portable fire extinguishers are the tools your business needs to put out fires fast.
Types of Fire Extinguishers
Fire protection personnel know that there are various sizes and classes of fire extinguishers available, and that a fire protection professional alone should evaluate and prescribe the right size and type for your building. One can find fire extinguishers as light as two and a half pounds as well as units that are so heavy they are put on wheels. Classes of fire extinguishers are as follows:
- Class A: For everyday materials like wood, fabric, plastic, paper, rubber
- Class B: For grease, oil, and other flammable liquids
- Class C: For electrically-charged fires
- Class D: For combustible metals
- Class K: For commercial kitchens
One can also find multi-purpose ABC or BC fire extinguishers; in fact, Fireline Corporation was one of the first companies to distribute these multi-purpose units in the 1960s. A Fireline Corporation professional can help you determine which type and size would be best suitable to your commercial, industrial, or governmental space.
