What is the purpose of the Fire Hose Cabinet?
Whether it's a commercial building or a residential apartment block, having an easily accessible anti-fire device is a necessity. However, you don’t want that installation interfering with the regular traffic of pedestrians through the halls. There are multiple options for the installation of a fire hose cabinet, but regular hose cabinets tend to be bulky and project into the available space of a hallway or walkway. A lay flat fire hose cabinet has the benefit of a small profile while at the same time providing a safe and easy location to house a fire hose when not in use.
Where can the Fire Hose Cabinet be used?
The lay flat fire hose cabinet is best used in situations where easy access is necessary for the building. Office buildings are the most common places for this type of fire hose cabinet. Because of the amount of people moving along corridors, a lay flat fire hose cabinet provides the required safety without impeding their motion. Residential apartment blocks with tight walkways can also benefit from using this fire hose cabinet without having to amend the design of their hallways.
Who might use the Fire Hose Cabinet?
The lay flat hose cabinet is best used in commercial buildings that are cramped for space to install safety equipment. Although they can opt for fire extinguishers, the fire hose cabinet is a much better alternative in the event of a fire. Residential apartment blocks are also good clients for the installation of these lay flat fire hose cabinets since it gives the residents peace of mind without having to sacrifice walkway space, something that can be extremely important in the event of an emergency.
Fire Hose Cabinet Specifications
The fire hose cabinet comes with a woven strap that makes it easy to store the hose securely within the cabinet itself. The bright red color makes it easy to locate, even in a smoke-filled hallway. With dimensions of 600mm by 500mm and a profile of 190mm, it is visible enough to find, but doesn't protrude too much to be a problem. The seals on the cabinet are water resistant, ensuring that the hose and housing will not be subject to environmental moisture which could affect their integrity. The hose and nozzle are not included in the cabinet.
