Fire Extinguisher Classes
- Class A: This happens to be the most common. With this type, you’re able to put out fires in ordinary flammable materials such as cloth, wood, rubber, paper, and many plastics.
- Class B: This extinguisher targets flammable liquids. Have a family cooking event? Use this tool to put out substances such as grease, gasoline, or oil.
- Class C: Not only is it important to do maintenance checks to avoid any pipe leaks. It’s important to catch potential electrical fires. This tool will help put out appliances, tools, and other electronically powered appliances and materials.
- Class D: If you’re looking for a commercial grade extinguisher, this tool will help put out fire to metals such as magnesium, titanium, and sodium.
- Class K: Looking for a commercial grade extinguisher for your commercialized kitchen? This tool helps put out fires that are associated with vegetable oils, animal oils, and animal fats.
