OVAL Fire Extinguishers are the only fire extinguishers which may be surface mounted in the corridors of healthcare facilities while maintaining compliance with the NFPA-101 Life Safety Code, the ADA, ANSI A117.1 and recent requirements issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Due to OVAL Fire Extinguishers new low profile design,  OVAL Fire Extinguishers never protrudes more than 4” even when attached to circular columns. This may not sound like a big design change that exciting, but if you need to be compliant with the ADA code on maximum depth of protruding objects, OVAL Fire Extinguishers are truly the first of their kind. So when it comes to fire safety, OVAL Fire Extinguishers are real life savers.

OVAL Fire Extinguishers Allow Unparalleled Design Flexibility

Every now and then a truly WOW product comes along.  The OVAL Fire Extinguisher is just that product. The latest trends from architects and interior designers is cleaner and sleeker interior spaces.  Typical fire extinguishers and cabinets have been an obstacle in this trend. OVAL Fire Extinguishers have changed all that. The unique low profile design of the OVAL fire extinguisher allows the extinguisher and cabinet to fit fully recessed into a standard 2×4 wall assembly.  This has allowed architects and interior designers to create cleaner and sleeker interior spaces with better aesthetics along hallways and corridors.
