Fire Extinguisher Sales: Buying Tips
When purchasing a fire extinguisher, first look into the coding system used to classify various types of canisters. The alphabetical codes relate to the type of protection for which the fire extinguisher is designed. Class A extinguishers help to douse flames fueled by wood, rubber, cloth, plastic, etc. while Class B is ideal for flammable liquids that include grease, oil and gasoline. Class C, on the other hand, is appropriate for appliance, wiring, and electrical fires. Class D agents are perfect for combustion metals like sodium, potassium magnesium, etc. and Class F for burnable cooking media.
The other major factor is to opt for units that can be secured in easily accessible places. In addition, it is important to select a model that has clear usage instructions as well as provide effortless access to the trigger.
Other Factors to Consider
When purchasing a fire extinguisher for your business you will want to make sure you don’t run to the local hardware store and grab just any fire extinguisher, but rather buy one from a fire protection contractor that specializes in fire protection like Service Fire Equipment.
There are city and county codes in Greater Dallas that regulate the types of units you should purchase and have on hand. Additionally, there can be a couple of other layers of complication such as insurance requirements and reliability issues with certain types.
