Fire extinguishers come in handy more than one might expect. They are necessary tools for commercial kitchens, offices, industrial plants, retail centers, hospitals, and practically all other commercial and industrial buildings. Fireline Corporation knows just how important it is to keep your building and occupants safe from fire. You can count on Fireline for your fire sprinkler, fire alarm, and fire extinguisher services in Arlington, VA.
The Importance of Fire Extinguishers
Fire alarms alert building occupants to the danger of fire, and fire extinguishers are the first tool to put out flames. Most fires start small, and a fire extinguisher is just the tool to put them to a stop before needing expensive fire sprinkler or suppression systems. According to a UK study, fire extinguishers put out around 80% of fires annually. Without this portable tool, some fires would not be able to go out without the help of large, expensive fire protection systems.
Fire Extinguisher Services in Arlington: Placement
There is a science to the placement of every fire extinguisher in a building. Each fire extinguisher comes in a particular class or class combination, such as Class A or Class ABC. Aside from Class C, which never is in a class of its own, each kind has guidelines for the maximum distance a person must travel to reach it. For example, the maximum distance a person should travel to reach a Class A extinguisher is 75 feet. Much math is involved in calculating the exact placement of each unit. Thankfully, you don’t have to figure it out. Fireline Corp. can do it for you and equip you with the fire extinguisher setup you need.
