How to Buy a Fire Extinguisher

The most important thing to look at when buying a fire extinguisher is the class of fire that the extinguisher is designed for. The different fire classifications are:

  • Class A -wood, cloth, paper, plastic, etc
  • Class B – flammable liquids like gasoline
  • Class C – electrical fires for wiring and appliances
  • Class D – flammable metals (usually found in laboratories)
  • Class K – kitchen fires (grease, hot oils, etc)

ABC all-purpose fire extinguishers are the most commonly sold fire extinguishers and will put out most fires.

In addition to the letter classifications, you should pay attention to the numbers on the side of the fire extinguisher. These numbers will tell you square footage the fire extinguisher will be able to put out when properly used. The minimum acceptable fire extinguisher size is 2A10BC, but they can go much larger than that! The size of fire extinguisher you should buy is largely dependent on the size or hazard of the space you want to protect, you can never be too careful when it comes to fire safety!

After you have chosen the size of fire extinguisher the facility requires. Rechargeable fire extinguishers are durable and can last for years if properly maintained and serviced. Remember to have the fire extinguisher annually serviced and inspected by a reputable fire protection services company – this is the only way you can be sure the fire extinguisher will always be operational and code compliant to keep you safe.
