Your extinguishers need to remain in a position which makes them available for use at all times and makes them easier to spot.
Of course, there’s no denying that extinguishers are capable of saving lives, but their appearance can be somewhat obtrusive. However, with the Designer Extinguisher Stand, that doesn’t have to be the case.
It allows you to store your fire extinguishers securely, whilst maintaining the aesthetics of your modern workplace.
The sleek design of the stand means it looks good, and with a choice of two colours you can find one to suit your needs.
The typical red-coloured stand means the extinguisher will remain instantly identifiable.
With the white stand, you have the option to paint it any colour you want. So when painted the same colour as the wall, it reduces the visual impact any extinguisher has. But it still manages to keep visible enough so it’s easy to find in an emergency.
Not only that, but the stand can either be securely fixed to a strong wall at the correct height, or placed on the floor.
Where Should An Extinguisher Go?
Believe it or not, fire extinguishers are not actually supposed to hold doors open! Although handy, their job is actually to put out small fires and keep people protected.
In fact, they should have a designated location, where everyone knows they can find it. And no, the door doesn’t count.
Fire extinguishers in offices, shops, and other public buildings need to be securely fixed onto the wall. Or, when that isn’t possible because a wall’s not strong enough, or there isn’t a wall, extinguishers need to be placed on a stand.
An extinguisher which is 4kg or larger should have its handle approximately one metre from the floor. With smaller extinguishers, this should be at a height of 1.5 metres.
The purpose of this is to prevent the extinguishers from becoming damaged or removed by keeping them off the floor. Plus, at that height, they are more noticeable and easier to pick up. Just don’t forget also to install the appropriate signage with it.
The designer extinguisher stand is versatile, and has five wall fixing points, making it as secure as possible when fixed to a wall. Or, you can simply use it to protect the extinguisher when kept on the ground.
Ready For An Emergency
With an internal retaining grip, the stand is also suitable for any size of fire extinguisher. This holds the extinguisher firmly in position whilst keeping it easy to remove when needed.
In an emergency, you can just grab the handle and go.
Its design means you also have something to fix a fire extinguisher sign to when it’s not placed next to a wall. So there’s no need to worry about someone being unable to use it, or using it incorrectly.
So whatever you need it for, the designer extinguisher stand is suitable. And it’ll do it while being enviously good-looking as well.
