New Fire Extinguisher Installation

Fire extinguisher installation is important because every building needs to be prepared in the event of a fire. We can examine how your equipment would respond in an emergency. Here at Safe-T Fire Protection, we provide thorough installation near Buford and Lawrenceville to verify that you have a fire extinguisher that is in top working condition. Commercial buildings are required to own fire extinguishers and have them inspected annually. In addition, every 30 days, you should visually inspect your fire extinguisher. You can do this by asking three questions: 

  1. Is the fire extinguisher in the right place? 
  2. Is it both visible and accessible? 
  3. Does the pressure gauge show the correct pressure? 

A Safe-T Fire inspection will include a thorough examination of all the parts of your fire extinguisher when we perform a fire extinguisher installation. Our trained professionals can recommend products and are also ready to tackle any repairs that need to be made to your existing extinguishers. Our fire extinguisher installation services span a wide range of areas. We install kitchen fire extinguishers, dry powder fire extinguishers, wall-mounted fire extinguishers, foam fire extinguishers, portable fire extinguishers, and wet chemical fire extinguishers. Contact us for a fire extinguisher installation.

Types of Fire Extinguishers 

There are a few different types of fire extinguishers, which use various substances to tackle the chemical reaction taking place in the fire. It’s important to use the correct fire extinguisher. Here are six types of fire extinguishers: 

  • ABC Powder: Sprays a chemical powder to suffocate the fire, which can be used for class A, B, and C fires.
  • Carbon Dioxide: Removes oxygen to extinguish carbon dioxide from the fire. Should be used on class B fires.
  • Wet Chemical: Potassium solution that sprays and seals liquid over the fire. Compatible with Class A and fires containing fats and oils.
  • Water Mist: Fights with water molecules to drain the temperature. Works on class A, B, and C fires.
  • Foam: Uses foam to suffocate the fire. Works well for classes A and B (excluding gaseous fires).
  • Clean Agent: Uses gas, usually halon, to reduce oxygen levels from the fire. Environmentally friendly and leaves no residue, making it work with class B and C fires. 

We can install any of these types of fire extinguishers. Contact us for your fire extinguisher installation.
