Fire Extinguisher Cabinets | The Importance of Safety and Accessibility

It is necessary to have the proper measures in place in your facility if you are going to adequately protect your employees and clients. Fire extinguishers are an essential tool of protection when it comes to mitigating the threat of fire. These devices must be protected properly in order to ensure their proper operation when they are needed. This can be accomplished by housing them in fire extinguisher cabinets. At Getz Fire Equipment Company, we provide the tools and maintenance services you need to help you ensure you have a reliable fire emergency protection system on hand when an emergency occurs.

Some of the benefits that accrue from having quality fire extinguisher cabinets in which to house your extinguishers include:

Security of the Extinguisher

These extinguisher cabinets can keep your extinguishers safe from harm. They keep them out of the way of unintentional or intentional contact from other individuals. With your extinguisher enclosed in such a cabinet, you cannot prevent an accidental incident that causes harm to the extinguisher.

Safety of Human Life

Fire extinguishers are filled with material that is designed to put out a fire. As such, they are constructed to be durable, and are often heavy. If not properly stored, they can easily be mishandled or knocked over and cause injury. Having extinguishers securely placed in cabinets can help keep people safe from injury.

Accessibility

It is important to know where your fire extinguishers are located. Having them in secure locations –i.e. fire extinguisher cabinets– makes them easily accessible.

If your facility needs to have properly installed, inspected and maintained fire extinguishers and/or the cabinets that house these extinguishers, be sure to contact our team at Getz Fire Equipment Company for the services and/or products you need.
