The Problem With Meeting ADA and NFPA-101 Compliance
Healthcare facilities such as hospitals, ambulatory, long-term care, nursing home and senior living centers must now comply with the 2012 edition of NFPA-101. Noncontinuous projections in corridors located below 38” are now limited to 4-1/2”. Projections above 38” are limited to no more than 4” per ADA and CMS. Most fire extinguishers, if surface mounted, do not comply with the new requirements.
The Easy Solution
Oval Brand Fire Products is proud to introduce the first and only fire extinguisher built for both NFPA-101 and ADA compliance, as required by CMS. By flattening the tank into a low-profile shape, Oval has created an extinguisher that projects less than 4″ from the wall. Oval Brand extinguishers can be mounted at the required locations throughout your facility and still remain compliant.
