Fire extinguishers are essential for both commercial and residential properties. They can help to put out small fires before they become larger and more dangerous. However, there are some key differences between commercial and residential fire extinguishers.
Commercial Fire Extinguishers
Commercial fire extinguishers are designed for larger fires and higher heat levels than residential fire extinguishers. They are also typically made of more durable materials that can withstand the rigors of commercial use. Commercial fire extinguishers are typically required in businesses that have a high fire risk, such as restaurants, warehouses, and factories.
- Larger size
- Higher heat rating

- Typically required in businesses with high fire risk
Residential Fire Extinguishers
Residential fire extinguishers are designed for smaller fires and lower heat levels than commercial fire extinguishers. They are also typically made of less durable materials that are less expensive. Residential fire extinguishers are typically required in homes and apartments.
- Smaller size
- Lower heat rating
- Less durable materials
- Typically required in homes and apartments
Which Type of Fire Extinguisher is Right for You?
The type of fire extinguisher that is right for you depends on the size and type of property you have, as well as the fire risks that are present. If you have a large commercial property with a high fire risk, you will need commercial fire extinguishers. If you have a small residential property with a lower fire risk, you can get by with residential fire extinguishers.
