The Different Kinds of Fire Extinguisher Cabinets

A good number of us would occasionally take for granted standard container units. We often forget that quality containers are also more or less necessary investments, particularly those that protect sensitive equipment that is vulnerable to wear and tear. In particular, fire extinguisher cabinets protect it (although not deliberately outdoors like the automatic fire extinguisher) from wearing through dust , moisture, careless manipulation and generally just keep it safe-until it is needed in an emergency. In this post I want to address the various types of fire safety equipment that are available from reputable dealers. Checkout Francis Fire Protection Services Ltd.

The type of single box is the same as its namesake, to contain a single unit. This is ideal usually to cover small areas such as small offices and rooms. It should be sturdy, mountable on a wall, and easily seen by people, and installed in a place where it can be easily guided by fire safety sign directions. For that matter, the use of a key with this sort or any form of fire extinguisher cabinets is optional, but in case of an emergency the key should be kept secure and easily accessible. I have found that leaving the key out in offices is fine in my experience as a commercial property manager for some time, but not in schools where students are liable to tamper / vandalize it.

The double box is ideal for offices particularly when carrying more than one form of this is recommended. Several fires require various extinguishers. If an automatic fire extinguisher is mounted in the city, make sure that this is out of control and can therefore be easily accessed by people in the event of an actual fire. Take note that fire extinguisher cabinets should be installed correctly, especially this heavy variant which carries up to 20 kilograms of weight.

There are portable types well designed for carrying vehicles such as trucks with heavy land transport. This is particularly important for those carrying flammable goods, but all commercial vehicles should carry it as their large engines are prone to causing harmful fires. It is good to note that most of the modern carriers for this are now manufactured using the polyethylene material, which is generally long-lasting and better than the previously used fiber glass and therefore will last longer even in constant transport in large vehicles.

It is good to inquire with the local fire authorities or a reliable dealer about the fire safety equipment for additional models and to see which one would match your establishment. Whether one is installing an automatic fire extinguisher or simply looking to adhering to the Fire Safety Order (FSO) Law, it is always best to seek expert advice. They can give you the best insight as to what container or equipment would be best in your personal case as different businesses as shown by this post, will have different fire safety requirements.
