In order to fully recess a fire extinguisher cabinet into a standard wall, the extinguisher must be no more than 3 inches deep. The average round fire extinguisher, however, requires 6 inch wall studs or 10 inch masonry in order to fully recess the cabinet.

When round fire extinguishers are used, deeper walls decrease usable square footage across a floor plan. For example, to allow for a flush cabinet (prior to the Oval Brand extinguisher) an average of 15 lineal feet of wall would need to change from 3-5/8″ stud framing to 6″ stud framing, thus reducing the usable floor area by 3 SF.

With Oval Brand Fire Products, fire extinguisher cabinets will never need to protrude from a wall again!

Oval Brand Fire Products is helping to make your buildings look their absolute best.  With Oval, a fully recessed, fire rated fire extinguisher cabinet can fit into a standard 3-5/8 inch studded wall.  A fully recessed, non-fire rated fire extinguisher cabinet can fit into a slim 2-1/2 inch studded partition and 6 inch masonry.

Designing your projects with Oval brand fire extinguishers will allow you to maximize rentable square footage while allowing your fire extinguishers to recess fully into the walls.
