Fire Extinguisher Classes and Installation
There are a number of different types of fire extinguishers that are called for in different applications. The type of fire extinguisher that your facility will require will depend on a number of factors.
- Class A fire extinguishers are used for fires that are caused by common combustible materials such as paper, fabric, and wood.
- Class B fire extinguishers are designed to handle flammable liquid fires, such as those caused by oil, gasoline, lacquers, tar, and paint.
- Class C fire extinguishers are used for electrical fires.
- Class D fire extinguishers are meant to be used for metal fires, making them useful in laboratory applications.
- Class K fire extinguishers handle grease fires and should be kept on hand in commercial kitchens.
