Commercial Fire Extinguishers

It goes without saying that a restaurant fire extinguisher is an absolute must-have in any food-service establishment. This is because every restaurant or food-service business should comply with restaurant fire safety codes and regulations as well as commercial fire extinguisher requirements. These restaurant fire safety codes and regulations are put in place because restaurants and food-service establishments are all potential fire hazards due to the fact that they cook food in their kitchens. Needless to say, in order to comply with these regulations and commercial fire extinguisher requirements, you must have one or two commercial fire extinguishers in your restaurant or food-service establishment.

While you might think that a commercial kitchen fire extinguisher is an unnecessary purchase and that it will just sit unused on the wall of your restaurant or food-service establishment and collect dust, you will surely be thankful when the situation arises that it could end up saving your life, your customers’ and food-service crew’s lives, and eventually your property.

A Closer Look at the Industrial Fire Extinguisher

Put in simple terms, a commercial fire extinguisher is an active fire-protection device that is used to extinguish or control fires, when emergency situations arise. Commercial fire extinguishers are not, however, built for use on big fires that are already out of control, usually those fires that have already reached the ceiling. For fires like these, the local fire department should be called immediately.

In the United States, there are commercial fire extinguisher requirements in place in all buildings. This means that commercial fire extinguishers are generally required to be serviced and inspected by a Fire Protection service. This is just one important reason why you need to invest in a quality restaurant fire extinguisher for your food-service establishment.

Typically, there are two types of commercial fire extinguishers: cartridge operated and store pressured. Cartridge-operated commercial fire extinguishers contain the expellant gas in a separate cartridge (hence the name) that is punctured before discharging, consequently expelling the propellant. This type of industrial fire extinguisher is not that common in most commercial establishments and is usually found in industrial facilities that require more-than-average usage. On the other hand, the more common type of commercial fire extinguishers are those that use dry chemicals. This is the commonly used type of restaurant fire extinguisher. Nitrogen is commonly used in these types of chemical commercial fire extinguishers.
