Life safety systems are essential components where personal and property protection are a priority. At BGS, we offer our clients an array of products within this category, including fire extinguishers, water-based, fire alarm and suppression systems.

Since 1999, safety has been our top priority and continues to drive our mission for better, readily available life safety systems. Take a look at our products and services below.

Fire Extinguisher Service and Inspection

BGS both sells and provides testing and maintenance services for automatic fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, deluge sprinkler systems and other types of water-based fire protection systems. 

We primarily sell our fire extinguishers to municipal fire stations and industrial facilities. We provide a wide range of fire extinguishers for purchase that meet or exceed state baseline life safety system requirements. 

What to Know About Buying Fire Extinguishers

Before you purchase fire extinguishers for your facility, you need to understand the basics of the different types of fire extinguishers and their applications. You will need to choose your fire extinguishers based on the different types of fire hazards your establishment will most likely encounter.

There are four types of fires, categorized according to their fuel source. To extinguish an incipient fire safely, you'll need an extinguisher that is compatible with that type of hazard. The four classes of fires are as follows:

  • Class A: Solid combustibles like paper, cloth, wood and certain plastics
  • Class B: Flammable liquids like gasoline, alcohol, oil and grease
  • Class C: Electrical equipment and appliances
  • Class D: Flammable metallic materials like potassium and sodium

Each class of fire hazard requires a specific type of extinguishing agent to extinguish a fire, so it's best to purchase a fire extinguisher according to the category you're most likely to encounter.
