Fire Extinguisher Cabinets
Our family-owned and -operated business has provided cabinets as part of our comprehensive fire protection services. We know all to well that fire extinguisher cabinets help protect your fire extinguishers from weather damage, theft, tampering, and more.
Peace of Mind
When moments matter, the last thing you want to discover is that your fire extinguisher is unavailable or out of service. Positioning your fire extinguishers within fire extinguisher cabinets ensures that they are always ready when they are needed to protect lives and property.
Common Types of Fire Cabinets
Semi-Recessed Wall Projections
One of our most popular cabinets, semi-recessed wall projections feature clear plastic or glass windows with trims that do not extend more than 2 1/2″ from the wall. This makes them ideal for installation in corridors and other areas where minimizing protrusion is essential.
Surface Mounted Cabinets
- These project 4″ or more from the wall, which means to remain ADA compliant, these must be mounted with the leading edge at or lower than 27″ from the floor. One of the advantages of these surface mounted cabinets is that they are easily visible throughout the room.
- Bubble cabinets are ADA compliant and don’t extend more than 4″ from the wall. These cabinets are easily accessible and allow for rapid use of the fire extinguisher in an emergency.
- Fire extinguisher cabinet installation isn’t as difficult as you may think. Our installation teams are masters at positioning your cabinets, so they are easily seen and accessed. We’ll make sure that everything from the fire extinguisher brackets to the fire extinguisher itself is properly installed and ready for use.

Types of extinguishers
Cabinets help protect the fire extinguisher from damage and ensure that it is always ready to go. Cabinets also help protect the extinguisher from UV rays and chemical exposures that can diminish their effectiveness. This is particularly helpful when the extinguisher is placed outdoors.
OSHA and NFPA do not require storage of fire extinguishers within a fire extinguisher cabinet. However, there are regulations within some municipalities and the Americans with Disabilities Act you may need to follow. If applicable, you must ensure it’s at the proper height, does not protrude more than four inches from the wall, and more.
Modern fire extinguisher cabinets can be made from wood, plastic, metal, or glass. However, most newer systems incorporate plastic rather than glass to reduce injury risk when removing the extinguisher from the cabinet.
Fireproof cabinets are great for protecting the materials inside from fire and containing any accidents that may happen. They can be made out steel or stainless steel, depending on what you want them to do best with your home or office’s contents in mind!
The UFC requires that every cabinet with flammable materials have self-closing doors to prevent fire exposure. This is a requirement in most States and local codes as well, making it important for the safety of all those living or working within your building’s footprint
If you’re looking for a cabinet that can keep your belongings safe, then this is just what you need! Cabinets must be double walled with one and half inch airspace. Joints are riveted or welded shut to make them tight enough so no spilled liquid seeps out of the door when it’s opened partially into an upright position on its hinges; three-point latches work best here too–but any type will do as long they close firmly in place without feeling flimsy against fingers.
The best way to extinguish a fire is with water! It will douse any class A fires, including paper and wood. If you have Class B flammable liquids such as alcohol or oil on hand then use something like sand which acts similarly but won’t harm anything else
