It is recommended that fire extinguishers should be located in conspicuous locations and available at all times for immediate use. The fire extinguishers are ideally suited in a stand or cabinet where they will be safely stored and ready to use.
In addition, having a proper dedicated fire extinguisher stand or cabinet helps to prevent extinguishers from being exposed to:
- Chemical deposits
By using a stand or cabinet, this prevents the need to frequently replace your fire extinguishers due to damage from them not being stored in a safe location. The stands and cabinets also work by discouraging staff from moving extinguishers away from their location.
