Wooden Fire Extinguisher Cabinets & Fire Codes

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Wooden Oak Fire Extinguisher CabinetsA customer recently asked me a question about whether or not wooden fire extinguisher cabinets complied with fire code. Initially I didn’t know. I assumed that they did comply with fire codes or they wouldn’t be made in the first place, but I wanted to check to be certain. This is what I discovered.

After speaking with Wooden Mallet, a prominent manufacturer of wooden oak fire extinguisher cabinets, I discovered that there are no fire codes preventing the use of wooden fire extinguisher cabinets.

I was informed, however, that cities can impose their own building and fire codes. It is recommended to check with the local fire marshal if there are any concerns.

Also take into consideration as to where the fire extinguisher cabinet will be mounted. Wooden fire extinguishers are mounted to a wall and do protrude. Some locations, such as halls, require that fire extinguisher cabinets be recessed into the wall regardless of whether they are wood or metal.

To date I have never had a customer complain about one of our wooden fire extinguisher cabinets or an issues with codes. You should be in the clear when it comes to using wooden fire extinguisher cabinets.

Introducing: New Wooden Oak Fire Extinguisher Cabinets

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Wooden Mallet Oak Fire Extinguisher CabinetsI don’t know about you, but to me a bright red fire extinguisher clashes with existing furniture. Unless your favorite color is red, they are pretty unsightly. I understand that they are necessary and required by law. Currently most people either have them bolted to the wall, using a metal strap, or in an aluminum cabinet hanging on the wall.

There is now another option when it comes to safely hanging fire extinguishers on the wall while keeping them accessible and complying with safety code. This new alternative is Wooden Mallet’s fire extinguisher cabinets. These wooden oak cabinets are clearly marked, available in multiple wood stains and fit in nicely with existing furniture.

These new cabinets come with a wooden cabinet door, marked Fire Extinguisher, or with a clear acrylic window. These wooden extinguisher cabinets come in a 5-pound and a 10-pound design, depending on how heavy the extinguisher is. All wall-mounting hardware is included.
