Fire Extinguisher Ratings

Fire extinguishers come in different types, each of which handles a specific class and size of fire. Learning the ratings is important so you can use the right type of extinguisher in case of emergency. Read the descriptions below to find out which extinguisher to use in a particular situation.

 

Class A

Class A | Fire Foe | Long Island City, NY
Class A Extinguishers will put out fires in ordinary combustibles, such as wood and paper. The numerical rating for this class of fire extinguisher refers to the amount of water the fire extinguisher holds and the amount of fire it will extinguish.
 

Class B

Class B | Fire Foe | Long Island City, NY
Class B Extinguishers should be used on fires involving flammable liquids, such as grease, gasoline, oil, etc. The numerical rating for this class of fire extinguisher states the approximate number of square feet of a flammable liquid fire that a non-expert person can expect to extinguish.
 

Class C

Class C | Fire Foe | Long Island City, NY
Class C Extinguishers are suitable for use on electrically energized fires. This class of fire extinguishers does not have a numerical rating. The presence of the letter “C” indicates that the extinguishing agent is non-conductive.
 

Class D

Class D | Fire Foe | Long Island City, NY
Class D Extinguishers are designed for use on flammable metals and are often specific for the type of metal in question. There is no picture designator for Class D extinguishers. These extinguishers generally have no rating nor are they given a multi-purpose rating for use on other types of fires.
 

Class K: Cooking oils and fats (kitchen fires)

Class K | Fire Foe | Long Island City, NY
Fires that involve cooking oils or fats are designated “Class K” under the American system, and “Class F” under the European/Australasian systems. Though such fires are technically a subclass of the flammable liquid/gas class, the special characteristics of these types of fires, namely the higher flash point, are considered important enough to recognize separately. Watermist can be used to extinguish such fires, as can dry-powder, CO2 or, for small fires, mechanical smothering. Appropriate fire extinguishers may also have hoods over them that help extinguish the fire.

Types of Fire Extinguishers

Experts recommend having enough number of extinguishers at home or at the office. Fire Foe Corp. provides information about the different types of fire extinguishers, such as Dry Chemical, Halon, Water, and Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

Multi-Class Ratings

A specific class or size of fire calls for a specific type of extinguisher. Manufacturers label their products to help customers learn what multi-class rating their extinguishers fall under. Fire Foe Corp. discusses the different styles of labeling used by manufacturers today and before. Call us if you have questions.
Many extinguishers available today can be used on different types of fires and will be labeled with more than one designator, e.g. A-B, B-C, or A-B-C. Make sure that if you have a multi-purpose extinguisher it is properly labeled.
This is the old style of labeling indicating suitability for use on Class A, B, and C fires.
This is the new style of labeling that shows this extinguisher may be used on Ordinary Combustibles, Flammable Liquids, or Electrical Equipment fires. This is the new labeling style with a diagonal red line drawn through the picture to indicate what type of fire this extinguisher is NOT suitable for. In this example, the fire extinguisher could be used on Ordinary Combustibles and Flammable Liquids fires, but not for Electrical Equipment fires.

Water Fire Extinguishers

Being prepared is the best way to avoid damages and injuries caused by fire. Fire Foe Corp. offers a range of fire safety products and equipment, including water fire extinguishers. We focus on providing reliable solutions to your fire-related problems.

Prevention is always a better option; but when the inevitable happens, you should have the right equipment in place. Placing enough number of fire extinguishers in your property is a good way to control or prevent the fire from spreading and causing severe structural damage. We include water extinguishers in our inventory to meet our clients' fire safety needs.

The Power of Water

Water is no doubt one of the most cost effective materials used in fire extinguishers. Its cooling effect makes it a reliable solution for Class A fires (burning paper, wood, cloth, and furniture). It also prevents the fire from reigniting by keeping the burning materials wet. Water extinguishers, however, aren't suitable for use on electrical fires. Any contact between water and electrical appliances or outlets can cause electrical shocks or short circuit.

Fire Foe Corp. is your premier source of high quality and reliable water extinguishers in New York. We also hold a license to operate in New Jersey and Connecticut. If you need cost effective extinguishers for your property, just give us a call and we'll show you our complete line of products.

Halon Extinguishers

Stay safe and avoid the mess with Fire Foe Corp.'s Halon Extinguishers. We aim to help you control fires in the most effective manner, so we offer reliable equipment. Our products come in different sizes to fit your safety needs. Check out our inventory to see what we have in stock for you.

Halon or halogenated hydrocarbon is a clean, volatile, and gaseous extinguishing agent that leaves no residue upon evaporation. It's a combination of carbon, chlorine, fluorine, and bromine. These elements are popular for their non-combustible properties, making them ideal for use in fire extinguishers. Extinguishers that use Halon are best for fighting Class B and C fires. These are ideal for protecting automotive and aircraft engines, computers, and other electrical equipment. A halon extinguisher has the ability to control electrical fires, making it a perfect choice for clients in the aviation, chemical processing, and technology industries.

How They Work

Halon fire extinguishers discharge a gaseous element that interrupts chemical reaction, thus preventing the fire from spreading. By neutralizing combustion, Halon is able to lower the temperature of a burning fuel and distribute the heat into the environment. It's a non-conductor of electricity, so it's safe for electrical systems and appliances.

Advantages of Halon Extinguishers

Halon extinguishers use high-pressure gas that discharges as a vapor. Unlike other types of extinguishers, Halons don't cause static shock or impairment of your vision. The gas is capable of getting into hard-to-reach areas, which allows the operator to put the fire out faster. Halon is a light and non-corrosive agent, meaning it won't damage your valuable items.

ABC Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers that can put out class A, B, and C fires are always a good investment. You can be sure that you have the right equipment in case a fire breaks out in your residential or commercial property. Fire Foe Corp. sells all purpose or ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers in New York and other areas in the US, such as New Jersey and Connecticut. We have a range of extinguisher sizes to suit your needs and budget.

Dry chemical extinguishers contain a mixture of monoammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate as extinguishing agents and are ideal for fighting all classes of fire. We recommend placing them in all conspicuous areas in your property for easy access. You can find instructions on proper use of these extinguishers on the product label.

How They Work

Tri-class extinguishers work the same way as other extinguisher types. The only difference is that they can put out class A, B, and C fires. They can insulate class A fires or those that involve the burning of common combustible materials like wood and paper. By coating the surface of the base of the fire, every ABC dry chemical extinguisher can keep class B fires from spreading. These are also good insulators, suitable for controlling fires caused by faulty electrical system or equipment. This will help reduce the risks of electrical shock. You can quickly extinguish the fire without even cutting the power supply off.

Safe Use of Dry Chemical Extinguishers

We always recommend following the instructions provided in each dry chemical extinguisher to ensure your safety while using our products. Remember that fire extinguishers are more effective when used before the fire spreads out. Calling the nearest fire department is the best option if the situation seems uncontrollable.

Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers

Carbon Dioxide is one of the cleanest and most effective extinguishing agents used in fire extinguishers. It's non-flammable and leaves no residue. CO2 fire extinguishers are suitable for use on fires involving flammable liquid and electrical equipment (class B and C fires).

Fire Foe Corp. is a trusted supplier of fire safety equipment in New York. Our website features the high quality carbon dioxide fire extinguishers for sale online. You can choose among different brands and sizes by browsing our large inventory of products.

Why Use CO2 Fire Extinguishers?

Carbon dioxide is so cold that it cools the flammable liquid immediately. You can even see dry ice coming out of the horn. CO2 extinguishers work by displacing oxygen to put the fire out and prevent it from spreading. These are available in sizes ranging from 5 lbs to 100 lbs or larger. These have hard horns, but lack pressure gauge. Larger units may include long, flexible hose with horns attached to the end. These types of extinguishers are ideal for use in the kitchen, chemical laboratories, and gas or oil processing plants.

As CO2 extinguishers don't leave residue, you don't have to worry about the mess. Simple cleaning is enough to remove stains caused by the fire. You can also prevent damage to your electrical system or appliances, as carbon dioxide does not cause any short circuit.

Safety Guidelines

Every carbon dioxide fire extinguisher we offer contains high-pressure gas, so be extra careful when using it. Maintain a safe distance when aiming at the source of fire involving flammable liquids to avoid potential burns. Fight if it's still safe to do so; flee and call for help if it's too dangerous. Buy CO2 fire extinguishers for sale with double-lined swivel horns to keep your fingers from freezing.
