The Importance of Fire Extinguisher Cabinets and Fire Extinguisher Stands
Fire extinguisher cabinets help protect fire extinguishers and keep them fully intact in case of an emergency. They prevent tampering and premature damage due to corrosion and other elements. They also stand out as an easy-to-find safety solution for a building’s occupants in case of fire.
Fire extinguisher stands serve the same purpose as fire extinguisher cabinets: to keep the extinguishers safe yet visible. Storing the fire extinguishers in your building in an easily accessible area will help your employees, clients, and customers feel secure and well-prepared for any fire emergency.

What is the main difference between fire extinguisher cabinets and fire extinguisher stands?
A fire extinguisher cabinet is permanently mounted on a wall or even built inside a wall, while fire extinguisher stands are not permanently mounted. Instead, they are attached to a “stand” that sits on the floor. Some fire extinguisher stands are portable, such as those used at outdoor events, festivals, sporting events, and construction sites.
How do I know what size fire extinguisher cabinet I need?
Consider the height of your extinguisher, including the handle, the width, including the hose, and the diameter of the tank. You should have at least 1” clearance on all sides for easy access and removal of the extinguisher from the cabinet. When in doubt, contact Safe-T Fire Protection! Our team can complete a fire inspection to ensure your building is safe and up to code.
Are fire extinguisher cabinets locked or unlocked?
Although most fire extinguisher cabinets appear locked, most are not. Whether or not you lock your cabinet depends on what type of facility you run and whether there is a risk of misuse. In cases where the cabinets need to be locked, staff will always have a key for easy access.
Some fire extinguisher cabinets have a clear glass panel on the front, further protecting the fire extinguisher and making it visible. In the case of an emergency, a building occupant will break this glass using a provided hammer or lever to retrieve the fire extinguisher.
The available types of handles, locks, and latches we offer include:
- Flexible Cam Key Lock
- Break Glass Cabinet
- Lock and Recessed Handle Cabinet
- Cabinet with Detention Lock (1-3 Facilities)
