Fire extinguisher boxes are crucial for road safety
Fire extinguisher boxes, also known as fire extinguisher cabinets, play a crucial part in the secure storage of fire extinguishers on vehicles. They provide additional safety and protection for fire extinguishers that are mounted on the outside of the truck, protecting from the elements and providing easy access. In the event of an emergency, the driver can get to the fire extinguisher quickly.
Fire extinguishers: legal requirements
In many countries (including The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany), a fire extinguisher in and on the truck is mandatory. Drivers must be able to extinguish their own cargo in the event of an emergency, which is why a well-mounted and securely protected fire extinguisher is so important.
Protect fire extinguishers from external influences
With a fire extinguisher box, you extend the life of your fire extinguisher by protecting it from dirt, dust, weather conditions such as rain, snow and UV radiation, as well as harmful substances near trucks. The fire extinguisher boxes are made of durable and impact-resistant plastic material that can withstand harsh road conditions. Want to store other tools and materials securely, in addition to a fire extinguisher?
