Wooden Fire Extinguisher CabinetsWe recently received a call from a customer who wanted to know if there were any fire code restrictions concerning wooden fire extinguisher cabinets. We consulted with Wooden Mallet, the manufacturer of the new wooden fire extinguisher cabinets, and they said that they have not yet experienced any codes restricting the use of wood fire extinguisher cabinets. Keep in mind, however, that all cities may impose their own local building and fire codes. Be sure to check with your local fire marshal if you are concerned about any possible restrictions.

Fire extinguishers provide a necessary safety use, but aren’t always the prettiest things to look at. Aluminum cases are ugly and often clash with existing furniture. The new Wooden Mallet FEC10 counters this problem. These new cabinets look great, fit in with existing furniture and still make fire extinguishers easy to access.

It would also be a good idea to consider the location where the wooden fire extinguisher cabinet will be mounted. Some areas, such as hallways, require cabinets that are recessed into the wall, whether they are made of wood or metal.
