Fires can break out at any time: during the holidays, during the summer, or during the most innocuous seasons. In commercial buildings of all kinds, the risk of danger is much higher due to higher occupancy. Building managers are responsible for the protection of lives and property. For this reason, fire protection systems and services are essential, and one of the first places to start to promote safety is with fire extinguisher services. If you are in need of fire extinguisher services in Rockville, Maryland, look no further than Fireline.

Types of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers come in different types and sizes. A professional can help prescribe the right one for your premises and place it strategically. As for size, you can find one either as light as two and a half pounds, or as heavy as a wheeled, industrial unit. In terms of type, you’ll find several categories from A to K:
- Class A: This chemical type is for ordinary materials like wood, fabric, paper, and trash.
- Class B: This chemical puts out fires on gasoline, grease, and oil.
- Class C: Class C takes care of electrical fires.
- Class D: This chemical deals with fires caused by combustible metals.
- Class K: Class K units are often in restaurants to handle kitchen fires.
- Pressurized Water: Water is a substitute for Class A fires.
- Carbon Dioxide: CO2 can take care of electrical fires and liquid fires.
You will see different combinations of A, B, and C chemicals on the market. Fireline provides Multi-purpose (ABC) dry chemical units and BC units as well.
