JL Industries Fire Extinguisher Cabinets

Ambassador (Steel), Academy (Aluminum) and Cosmopolitan (Stainless Steel) Series

The Ambassabor, Academy and Cosmopolitan Series provide the least expensive of the recessed, semi-recessed and surface mounted cabinets in three trim and door materials: steel, aluminum and stainless steel respectively. Ideal for schools, hospitals, hotels, motels, apartments, supermarkets, etc. These cabinets come with a great variety of combination metal-glass door styles and sizes to suit most all portable fire extinguishers.

All Ambassador, Academy and Cosmopolitan cabinets come standard with a continuous hinge. These flush cabinet doors consist of a formed design with 5/8" nominal thickness. The doorstop therefore extends 5/8" into the tub. The standard door hardware for non-break glass doors consists of zinc plated pull handles and roller catch. A handle and cylinder lock with flexible cam is standard for SAF-T-LOKTM mechanisms. All steel cabinets are finished with a white powder coat. Square edge trim is standard on all surface mount stainless steel cabinets. See below for door and glazing styles and other optional metals and cabinet features available. For those special job requirements, our Versatile Manufacturing Capabilities can handle most any request. Just ask us!
