Class K Fire Extinguishers in Orlando, FL
Fires that involve fuel sources such as cooking oils, animal fats, and vegetable fats present unique challenges among fire types. Not only does the flammable material need to be rapidly cooled, but it also needs to be blocked from access to oxygen to diminish flames as quickly as possible.
Class K extinguishers perform this function by using a unique blend of alkaline potassium-based chemicals that create a saponification reaction, which coats the area in a soapy foam layer. This layer blocks the movement of vapor, cooling the material, and also makes the ingress of oxygen into the fuel source impossible, stopping the fire as swiftly and safely as possible.
Class K Fire Extinguisher Inspection and Maintenance
Extinguishers make an ideal fire safety solution for reducing the risks of a spreading fire and keeping employees and clients safe. However just like any tool or system, extinguishers need to be inspected and certified routinely to ensure effective operation in your time of need.
United Fire Protection offers annual certification services, as well as extended maintenance and inspection for older extinguishers. Your inspection needs will be met with thorough precision, and we provide full documentation of the service for your records.
