Fire extinguishers come in many sizes and chemicals. Knowing the right extinguisher for the right purpose is essential in protecting people, property, and assets. Our licensed Fire Safety Advisors are well educated in the CLASS of fires and the use of the proper extinguishing chemical and size to be used.
The purpose of testing a fire extinguisher is to confirm it will work when needed and to confirm cylinder integrity.
Fire Extinguisher testing varies per fire extinguisher chemical and cylinder type. Testing also varies by from state to state, depending on regulations. The chart below follows the NFPA 10, 2007 Edition.
