Fire Extinguisher Installation

When you own a business, you have a responsibility to keep your employees and customers safe from harm.

One way to ensure this is to install fire extinguishers in accordance with NFPA 10 standards. These portable firefighting cylinders act as your first line of defense against a fire, so you certainly don’t want to be without them.

Types of Fire Extinguishers

Not all fire extinguishers are the same. Certain types are better than others for certain types of fires. Make sure you have the right fire extinguishers throughout your property.

We offer complete fire extinguisher services for a wide array of units. Look to us when you need to purchase, install, inspect, or service any of these fire extinguishers:

  • Clean agent fire extinguishers: These extinguishers are designed to not leave residue or damage expensive and sensitive equipment.
  • Class K fire extinguishers: These are designed to put out commercial kitchen fires, specifically due to grease.
  • Multi-class fire extinguishers: These units are designed to take care of most classes of fires, from wood-based to fuel-based and more.

Make sure you have the right fire extinguishers around your property. Call us to request a quote.

Fire Classifications

While you hope you never have to use them, it’s still important to have a fire protection professional install the correct fire extinguishers in your building. Different fires require different extinguishing methods depending on what the fuel source is.

Guardian Fire Protection 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 start 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.

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, Guardian Fire Protection can help you choose the right number and type of fire extinguishers to ensure your business is compliant.

Fire Extinguisher Installation Options

Anywhere a possible fire hazard exists, the law requires you to install fire extinguishers. With all the regulations surrounding how and where fire extinguishers should be installed, it’s best to leave the job to the experienced technicians at Guardian Fire Protection.

Fire extinguishers have a few different installation options based on your needs:

  • Fire extinguisher brackets: These mount to the wall and hold canisters up off the floor, but still within sight.
  • Fire extinguisher cabinets: These house canisters behind a breakable glass door to prevent tampering until there’s an emergency.
  • Portable fire extinguisher stands: These make it easy to relocate canisters as needed to meet fire codes during temporary events or concerts.
