Computerized Barcode Inventory Control and Inspection Reports

Inspectors use standard PDAs with BuildingReports software to scan devices and upload the results to a secure, web-based account.

The data is compared to past inspections and subjected to statistical analysis using an online database. The unique barcode registration ensures comprehensive inspections, by monitoring the inspectors' progress in real time during the inspection, preventing missed items, and facilitating fast action on repairs.

Scanned timestamps cannot be modified, and reports are available immediately in the form of a dynamic web page or a downloadable document to authorized users only.

BuildingReports' third-party verification and authentication protocol ensures verifiable compliance backed by a certificate of authenticity.

The inspection results are audited online and reviewed for certification. Instantly retrievable documentation from a detailed database of every time-stamped, bar-coded inspection means you can deliver up-to-date, verifiable documentation on demand. 

Authentication is guaranteed with regular independent audits, both online and on-site. This is intelligent compliance designed by industry experts and it produces accurate, verifiable results you can trust.

Types of Fire Extinguishers

ABC Dry Chemical

Dry chemical fire extinguishers extinguish the fire primarily by interrupting the chemical reaction of the fire triangle.

Today's most widely used type of fire extinguisher is the multipurpose dry chemical that is effective on Class A, B, and C fires.

This agent also works by creating a barrier between the oxygen element and the fuel element in Class A fires.

BC Dry Chemical

Dry chemical fire extinguishers extinguish the fire primarily by interrupting the chemical reaction of the fire triangle.

Ordinary dry chemical fire extinguishers are for Class B and C fires only. It's important to use the correct extinguisher for the type of fuel!

Using the incorrect agent can allow the fire to reignite after apparently being extinguished successfully. Purple-K is the other fire suppression agent that we use in dry chemical fire extinguishers.

Wet Chemical

Wet chemical is a new agent that extinguishes the fire by removing the heat of the fire triangle and prevents reignition by creating a barrier between the oxygen and fuel elements.

Wet chemicals of Class K extinguishers were developed for modern, high-efficiency deep fat fryers in commercial cooking operations. Some may also be used on Class A fires in commercial kitchens.

Clean Agent

Halogenated or clean agent extinguishers include the halon agents as well as the newer and less ozone-depleting halocarbon agents. They extinguish the fire by interrupting the chemical reaction of the fire triangle.

Clean agent extinguishers are primarily for Class B and C fires. Some larger clean agent extinguishers can be used on Class A, B, and C fires.

Water and Foam

Water and foam fire extinguishers extinguish the fire by taking away the heat element of the fire triangle. Foam agents also separate the oxygen element from the other elements.

Water extinguishers are for Class A fires only; they should not be used on Class B or C fires. The discharge stream could spread the flammable liquid in a Class B fire or could create a shock hazard with a Class C fire.

Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers extinguish fire by taking away the oxygen element of the fire triangle, and also by removing the heat with a very cold discharge.

Carbon dioxide can be used on Class B and C fires. They are usually ineffective on Class A fires.

Dry Powder

Dry powder extinguishers are similar to dry chemical except that they extinguish the fire by separating the fuel from the oxygen element or by removing the heat element of the fire triangle.

However, dry powder extinguishers are for Class D or combustible metal fires only. They are ineffective on all other classes of fires.

Water Mist

Water mist extinguishers are a recent development. They extinguish the fire by taking away the heat element of the fire triangle. They are an alternative to the clean agent extinguishers, where contamination is a concern.

Water mist extinguishers are primarily for Class A fires, although they are safe for use on Class C fires as well.

Cartridge-Operated Dry Chemical

Cartridge-operated dry chemical fire extinguishers extinguish the fire primarily by interrupting the chemical reaction of the fire triangle.

Like the stored-pressure dry chemical extinguishers, the multipurpose dry chemical is effective on Class A, B, and C fires. This agent also works by creating a barrier between the oxygen element and the fuel element on Class A fires.
