Class K Fire Extinguishers

Class K Fire Extinguishers

Kitchen Safety Solutions

A Class K fire is considered one that is fueled by cooking oils or fats which are used widely in commercial restaurants, cafeterias, bakeries and other food related industries. These fires can flash quickly and become out of control.

Class K fire extinguishers are more effective at extinguishing cooking fires because they use a wet mist that contains a special potassium acetate-based low-pH agent that works to cool the flammable liquid and block oxygen, putting out the flames and preventing re-ignition.
