ADA Accessible Guideline 4.4

Cabinets and Fire Extinguishers projecting from walls with their leading edges between 27 inches and 80 inches above the finished floor shall protrude no more than 4 inches into walks, halls, corridors, passageways, or aisle. Objects mounted with their leading edges at or below 27 inches above the finished floor may protrude any amount. Freestanding objects mounted on posts or pylons may overhang 12 inches maximum from 27 inches to 80 inches above the ground or finished floor.
