A fire can destroy property, and the flames and smoke they produce both pose a significant danger to people and pets. Fire extinguishers help you fight back to buy yourself time and limit the damage.

When operated correctly, an extinguisher can help you contain or even stop fires before they spread. They are the first line of defense against disaster, often making the difference between suffering minor damage and dealing with a complete catastrophe. Having one will help you keep property safe and give people valuable extra time to evacuate the area.
Fires start from multiple causes. If a fire starts in your home or business, you must use the right tools to fight it, or you could make the problem worse. A fire extinguisher rated for the job will help smother the flames and prevent them from spreading.
At Construction Fasteners and Tools, we carry ABC fire extinguishers. ABC fire extinguishers are standard in both residential and commercial applications. They are also one of the most versatile and effective at fighting Class A, B and C fires, which are defined by their fuel sources.
Class A fires are the most common. These fires contain common flammable materials like wood, paper, trash, fabric and some plastics. A Class A fire is the only fire you can also use water on, but an ABC extinguisher will typically produce better results.
Class B fires are often the type encountered in businesses, workshops and industrial environments. They typically have a flammable gas or liquid as the base and must be smothered out. Sources include frying pan grease, kerosene, propane, gasoline, butane, lubricants and petroleum-based products.
Class C fires are fires caused by electrical sources. Electrical fires can occur from things like an overload, poor wiring and faulty circuitry. They are often associated with energized equipment like transformers, computers, servers, motors and household appliances.
It is also important to select the right size tool for the job. Fire extinguishers measure in pounds — the number indicates how much dry chemical powder they contain. The larger the extinguisher, the more square footage you'll be able to cover:
