WATER BASED Fire Extinguishers
They are strictly UL rated “A” type fire application only, yet their ease of refill, non-toxicity, and overall effectiveness against “A” type fires make them one of the most popular extinguishers sold in the U.S.A.
They are used on UL rated “AB” type fire only. They come in three sizes: a 6 liter (UL rated 1A:20B), a 2.5 gallon hand portable (UL rated 3A:20B), and a 33 gallon (UL rated 20A:160B) wheeled or stationary unit.
This represents the state-of-the-art in HAND PORTABLE COMMERCIAL KITCHEN FIRE PROTECTION. To compliment the new UL 300 standard for automatic, pre-engineered, kitchen fire suppression systems, Class “K” has been developed as a hand portable stainless steal wet chemical unit. A wet chemical unit neutralizes the fire without the chance of a re-flash that a standard dry chemical UL rated “BC” unit may allow. This unit comes in two sizes: 6 liter (UL listed 2A:K), and 2.5 gallon (UL listed 2A:K).
New!! Water Mist
The perfect extinguisher for a Class “A” fire in an area where a potential Class C (electrical) hazard exists. The unique fine misting spray of these units provides safety from electrical shock while enhancing the cooling and soaking characteristics of the de-ionized water agent. It is the perfect extinguisher for hospitals, telecommunication facilities, and clean room applications. This unit is non-magnetic and so perfect for MRI facilities.
