Water mist is the ultimate extinguisher for class a fires and where the potential for a class C (electrical) fire exists. The spray created by the unique misting nozzle provides safety from electrical shock and enhances the cooling and soaking characteristics of the agent, while at the same time reducing the scattering of burning materials.
Water extinguishers are ideal for class A fires because of the cooling, soaking and penetrating effect of water. Capable of releasing a 45-55 foot stream of water and the long discharge time, water extinguishers are very effective for inexperienced operators on class A fires.
