ABC fire extinguishers are ideal for homes, businesses, hallways, office buildings, apartment buildings, chemical storage areas, RVs, boats, and cars.
ABC or Multi-Purpose Fire Extinguishers can be used on Class A, B, or C fires.
- Class A: Ordinary Combustibles - wood, paper, cloth, trash, rubber, fabrics, many plastics (not metals).
- Class B: Flammable Liquids and Gases such as gasoline, oil, paint, lacquer and tar.
- Class C: Fires involving live or energized electrical equipment (anything that is plugged in).
ABC Fire Extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical in the form of a fine pale yellow powder. ABC Fire Extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator.

Amerex is my go to extinguisher. Thank you for making it so easy to acquire what we needed.
First order with Fire Extinguisher Depot went without any problems. Got the product in time and exactly what we ordered.
I was impressed with the shipping time :). Great product. Up to date. Ive had experiences where i have bought a fire extinguisher from the year before this one was current year.
great price and great extinguisher, fast shipping & zero complaints.
Thankfully haven't had to use the extinguisher, but seems more solidly made then others we've owned, and I will definitely purchase from this site again in the future.
Product was shipped quickly and lower priced than the rest.
America B500 -great reviews for performance on classes ABC. Why buy plastic brands at big-box stores when you can buy rechargeable metal ones for the same price? I also note one plastic brand is on recall after personal injury!
Very high quality, nice steel parts. I upgraded over my old Kidde extinguishers which seem junky in comparison to this one.
Price was the best I could find here and very happy with the service.
great price , quality fire extinguisher, very fast shipping.
