Fire Extinguishers Sales
Buying a portable fire extinguisher for your El Paso TX or Las Cruces NM home or office is an important step toward protecting yourself from fire. At Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company, we want to provide you with the most effective fire extinguishers available. Before you buy a fire extinguisher, it is important that you do your research so you can determine the best type of extinguisher for your building.
Choosing a Fire Extinguisher
Business owners often have a lot of questions about fire extinguishers—what size and type do I need? How many fire extinguishers should I get, and where should I put them all? Let Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company’s licensed technicians and knowledgeable staff help you choose the correct size, number, and type of extinguishers for your El Paso TX and Las Cruces NM facility. We can save you money by strategically installing new portable fire extinguishers while abiding by the fire code requirements.
Do you need standard ABC fire extinguishers for your office building? How about a special class D fire extinguisher for your chemical laboratory? A K-Class kitchen class fire extinguisher? Whatever your fire extinguisher needs are, Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company has you covered!
Fire Extinguisher Classes
While you hope you never have to use them, it’s still important to install the correct fire extinguishers in your building. Before you buy a fire extinguisher, make sure you know which types of fire it is designed to extinguish. Different fires require different extinguishing methods depending on what the fuel source is. Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company has experience installing fire extinguishers to put out all five categories of fire, which include:
- Class A: Common fires that include the combustion of wood, cloth, paper, plastic and other ordinary combustibles.
- Class B: Fires caused when flammable liquids ignite.
- Class C: Electrical fires that occur when wiring or appliances overheat and cause a spark.
- Class D: Uncommon fires caused when shards of flammable metals (including sodium, magnesium and titanium) ignite.
- Class K: Kitchen fires that involve overheated grease and cooking oil.
Fire extinguishers usually have big letters on the side that indicate the class of fire they are designed for. It is imperative that you choose the right type of extinguisher—for instance, you would never want to use a class A-only fire extinguisher (usually filled with water) on a class C electrical fire. In general, most business owners throughout the El Paso TX and Las Cruces NM areas choose ABC fire extinguishers, which are suited to put out most fires that normally occur in a building. The type of fire hazard found in your building, office or restaurant determines the type of fire extinguishers you should install. If you’re not sure of your risks, Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company can help you choose the right number and type of fire extinguishers to ensure your business is compliant.
Fire Extinguisher Sizing
The size of the fire extinguisher that you will need is dependent on the hazard class of your building. Fire extinguishers come in various sizes and the most common are 2.5, 5, and 10 pound. Our extinguisher technicians will evaluate your building layout and occupancy and recommend the most effective extinguisher for your building or equipment.
There are many technical aspects to consider when purchasing an extinguisher that the average layperson will not be able to consider without a lot of research. Our technicians are trained to assess your building and select the proper extinguisher for your specific application.
Purchasing a Fire Extinguisher
ABC Fire Extinguishers – ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers, also called multi-purpose fire extinguishers, use a dry chemical. Commonly purchased for use in office buildings, they are appropriate for the most common types of fire, including wood, paper, and plastic fires, as well as flammable liquid and electrical fires.
Purple K Fire Extinguishers – Often purchased for use by oil, gas, chemical, and utility companies, Purple K dry chemical fire extinguishers use a purple-colored dry chemical that is electrically nonconductive and is extremely effective against class B flammable liquid fires and class C electrical fires.
CO2 Fire Extinguishers – Using a cloud of white carbon dioxide “snow,” CO2 fire extinguishers remove heat and quickly smother class B and C fires without any messy residue. CO2 fire extinguishers quickly cool down flames and can reach and exterminate even hidden flames. CO2 fire extinguishers can be used safely on all electrical and electronic equipment with no risk of electric shock to the extinguisher operator or damage to devices. They are not recommended for use against class A fires, as the speed of the discharge is likely to cause flaming materials to blow away, potentially spreading the flames.
Kitchen Class Fire Extinguishers – Designed to supplement a kitchen fire suppression system, K-Class kitchen fire extinguishers contain the unique liquid fire suppressant and are designed to knock down flames, cool down grease and form a vapor securing blanket to prevent further fire outbreaks. K-Class kitchen fire extinguishers are usually purchased for food-service establishments such as restaurants, convenience stores, food courts, and cafeterias.
Clean Agent Fire Extinguishers – Clean Agent fire extinguishers contain a chemical that is clean, electrically nonconductive, environmentally friendly, low in toxicity, and highly effective against Class A, B and C fires. Non-magnetic Clean Agent fire extinguisher models designed for MRI rooms and operating rooms are available. Clean Agent fire extinguishers are often purchased to protect computer and data storage centers, control rooms, laboratories, and hospitals.
