Introducing the truth about fire extinguishers
These are the stalwart companions for any home or office when it comes to defence against fires. It’s always been the belief that you grab one, mount it some place very accessible on your wall and be ready to use it when it’s time. However, fire extinguishers also seem to create that sense of one-size-fits-all about them and they are so much more than simply point, spray and water or a little foam comes out to quell the flames.
Fire extinguishers are nuanced and specific, as you’ll find here in our selection. Some of them are built to handle chemical and gaseous fires, while others are made to take care of flare-ups caused by oil and petrol, and others are like those many of us have come to know, which are the simple and straightforward point-and-spray water or a little foam models.
Understanding the fire extinguisher options available provides a level of comfort when looking to purchase one for your needs. They are built, simply enough, to put out a fire, yet how they operate is far more complex when it’s looked at from the variety of possibilities the different repellents are actually capable of addressing.
Home, business and travel
Fires can break out anywhere and it’s always important to be as prepared as possible. How those flames spread or what the accelerant is determines which one of the fire extinguishers will fit the job. This, then, also can be decided by the location in which the spark occurs, whether it’s on a construction site, in an automotive repair shop, home garage, restaurant or home kitchen, or on a watercraft. Each of these presents a unique set of challenges that requires a special tool for the job. Fortunately, the different fire extinguishers we offer make it easy to find the right one for any situation at any location. And because of how portable each one is, you can have one on hand in your car or boat, on your job site or in your home. You’ll have it when the need arises, making you, your employees and your family feel that much more secure.
