ADA Compliant Fire Extinguisher Cabinet.

Some building codes require an ADA compliant fire extinguisher cabinet.  Start by reviewing the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.  Also check with your local build code administration, building inspectors, and fire inspectors.  We will include some general information about an ADA compliant fire extinguisher cabinet but the local code may vary.

There are two basic types of ADA compliant fire extinguisher cabinets; a semi-recessed fire extinguisher cabinet and a fully recessed fire extinguisher cabinet.

Semi-Recessed Fire Extinguisher Cabinet | Buy Online

A semi-recessed fire extinguisher cabinet may protrude from the wall no more than 4" for it to comply with ADA guidelines.  If the fire extinguisher cabinet protrudes 4", a flush mount door handle must be used to make the fire extinguisher cabinet compliant.  Using a semi-recessed fire extinguisher cabinet will allow more room for the fire extinguisher.  If the installation calls for a 20 lbs. fire extinguisher this stile cabinet will be more accommodating.

Fully-Recessed Fire Extinguisher Cabinet | Buy Online

A fully-recessed fire extinguisher cabinet may protrude from the wall no more than 4" for it to comply with ADA guidelines.  Using a fully-recessed fire extinguisher cabinet can reduce the amount of space for the fire extinguisher.  This stile cabinet will leave minimal room for the fire extinguisher.  If the installation calls for a 20 lbs. fire extinguisher, verify that the fire extinguisher will fit inside that fire extinguisher cabinet.
