AUTOMATIC FIRE EXTINGUISHER INFORMATION

 

What the A B C ratings mean on these Automatic ABC Fire Extinguishers

“A” GARBAGE–WOOD–PAPER

Fire extinguishers with a Class A rating are effective against fires involving paper, wood, textiles, and plastics. The primary chemical used to fight these fires is monoammonium phosphate, because of its ability to smother fires in these types of materials.

“C” ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT

Fire extinguishers with a Class C rating are suitable for fires in “live” electrical equipment. Both monoammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate are commonly used to fight this type of fire because of their nonconductive properties.
