About Class D fires
A Class D fire is categorized as a “metal fire,” which can be very dangerous. The Class D extinguisher sprays a powder coat over the burning metal to stop the fire—as well as to cool the burning metal. This dual-purpose extinguisher is specialized and, for this reason, should only be used for this type of fire. If you aren’t sure if this is the correct fire extinguisher for your needs, we can help you evaluate your current setup and let you know.
Class D extinguishers are meant to be used on combustible metals, such as powdered aluminum, magnesium, and several other specific types of metal materials. These units will not help in addressing other types of fires and can be dangerous when misused. That said, when they are used correctly, they provide a safe and effective means of fire control and mitigation.

At Service 1st Fire Protection, we stock and sell two versions of the Amerex Class D fire extinguisher, both of which are FM Approved and tested to ANSI/UL standards:
- Model B570 – This fire extinguisher comes in both wheeled and stationary configurations, with a weight of 150 pounds. The dry powder it uses is a proprietary blend of sodium chloride, and it works on a wide range of different metals, including sodium, potassium, magnesium, and sodium-potassium alloys.
- Model B571 – This extinguisher unit uses a copper material to address the fire and cool the metal. This model is a great match for those who may need to put out a lithium or lithium alloy fire. Our company carries it in a 250-pound, wheeled configuration.
