Larsen - Detention Fire Extinguisher Cabinets & Fire Department Valve Cabinets

General Description: Larsen's detention fire extinguisher, fire hose, and fire department valve cabinets provide an effective method of securing fire protection equipment for all types of detention facilities. Available as fully recessed or surface-mounted cabinets and designed for maximum security - these heavy gauge steel units feature one piece solid steel doors with matching trim and heavy gauge continuous piano hinges. These features combined with Larsen's mechanical security locks, fire extinguishers, valves, and hose rack units offer the highest level of protection for any detention facility.

Box Specification: All recessed and surface-mounted cabinets feature 12 gauge cold-rolled steel boxes finished with a rust inhibitive baked primer. Surface-mounted cabinets with stainless steel trim and door have a box constructed entirely of 304 stainless steel with industrial matte finish.

Trim and Door Specification: Steel trims and doors are manufactured entirely from 12 gauge cold-rolled steel. The doors are one piece construction. Standard finish is a rust inhibitive backed primer. Stainless steel trims and doors feature the same construction using 12 gauge 304 stainless steel with industrial matte finish.

Available Models: DEC 2409, DEC 2712 and DVC 1818 Series

To specify the DEC or DVC series:
  1. Insert, after "DEC" or "DVC," the appropriate prefix for the trim and door material. If 12 gauge STEEL - use "S." If 12 gauge STAINLESS STEEL - use "SS."
  2. Select the required model number from the dimensional chart based on wall depth and interior capacity. Recessed or surface-mounted.
  3. Select "LOCK OPTION".
  4. Select interior components: fire extinguishers and fire department valves.
  5. Other Options: special lettering, special finishes (white or red baked enamel), lighter gauges for medium or minimum security needs.
  6. Fire-rated option
Note: When specifying Larsen's Flame-Shield fire-rated cabinet option for the DEC, DVC, or DHC Series, refer to the dimension charts below and select from the models with the "FS" prefix. As is the case with non-rated detention valve and hose cabinets, no knock-outs are provided with the fire-rated detention valve and hose cabinets. Pipe holes must be drilled by the installer and complete instructions are supplied with each fire-rated valve and hose cabinet.
