ABC Dry Chemical (Multi-Purpose) Fire Extinguishers
The most common fire extinguisher on the market found in most homes and businesses is the ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher. Dry chemical extinguishers are designed for protection of light and ordinary hazards. These compact and portable extinguishers are suited for both industrial and commercial fire protection needs.
Dry chemical extinguishers don’t sacrifice performance, meeting or exceeding requirements of ANSI/UL 299 and 711 or ULC S504 and S508. Powerful, portable and engineered to last, these extinguishers are trusted by people and industries to protect critical assets.
ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers or multi-purpose fire extinguishers are designed to work on Class A, Class B, and Class C fires. ABC rated fire extinguishers use monoammonium phosphate powder to extinguish flames.
