American Hi-Tek only sells quality Industrial fire extinguishers, all having serviceable metal valves and a metal gauge and mounting bracket.

All fire extinguishers we sell are USCG rated and count as “one” fire extinguisher per USCG Code.

Vessels 25′ and under required to have ONE Charged, Mounted and Readily accessible Fire Extinguisher on-board. *

Vessels 26′ to 39′ are required to have TWO Charged, Mounted and Readily accessible Fire Extinguisher on-board. *

Vessels 40′ and over are required to have THREE Charged, Mounted and Readily accessible Fire Extinguisher on-board. *

* Having a fixed mounted fire fighting system in the Machinery Space counts as ONE of the required fire extinguisher fire extinguishers.
