Commercial, wheeled fire extinguishers.
Wheeled fire extinguishers can be easily operated by one person and are differentiated from “hand portable” fire extinguisher types often simply on the basis of their capacity or total weight. Wheeled units are available in a variety of sizes and extinguishing agents with capacities that range from 30 to 350 pounds. Wheeled fire extinguishers are chosen for the higher capacity (volume), higher flow rates, extended fire fighting range and extended discharge time.
