GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Architectural Series is a traditional, value-added line of recessed, semi-recessed, and surface mounted fire extinguisher cabinets. These units are designed for all types of buildings and are equipped with the conventional door styles such as those pictured below. The standard door and trim material is steel, and optional materials include both aluminum and stainless steel. All doors are ½” thick and open 180°. All doors have a satin finish pull handle with a self-adjusting roller catch, and a continuous piano hinge constructed of the material which matches the door and trim.
BOX SPECIFICATION: All recessed and semi-recessed cabinets and surface-mounted steel cabinets have a heavy gauge, white baked enamel box. Surface-mounted cabinets with aluminum door and trim have a box constructed entirely of clear or color anodized aluminum. Surface-mounted cabinets with stainless steel door and trim have a box constructed entirely of 304 stainless steel with #4 finish.
TRIM AND DOOR SPECIFICATION: Steel trims and doors are one piece, constructed of cold-rolled steel with a standard finish of white baked acrylic enamel, which can be used as either a finish or prime coat. Aluminum trims are constructed of extruded or fabricated aluminum and all corners are mitered. Aluminum is the recommended material for applications in salt air and other corrosion prone environments. Clear satin anodized finish is standard for all trims and doors, and optional color anodized finishes are available. To specify aluminum trim and door, use the prefix “AL” before the cabinet model number. Stainless steel trims and doors are one piece, constructed of #4 finish, 304 stainless steel. To specify stainless steel trim and door, use the prefix “SS” before the cabinet model number. All steel and stainless steel doors have a tubular, hollow-metal design. Samples of door and trim materials are pictured.
TO SPECIFY THE ARCHITECTURAL SERIES:
1. Use the appropriate prefix for the trim and door material. No prefix is required for steel. Use “AL” for aluminum. Use “SS” for stainless steel.
2. Select the required model number from the dimension chart.
3. Select the door style from the pictures below.
4. Other options: Larsen-Loc® (see below), Die-Cut Lettering, Special Finishes (paint, color anodized aluminum or #8 stainless steel), Vigilante Alarm, “FIRE” Handle, Recessed Handle (see the “Exclusive Options for Extinguisher Cabinets” profile).
* CLEAR ACRYLIC IS STANDARD. THESE DOORS ALSO CAN BE GLAZED WITH TEMPERED SAFETY GLASS, CLEAR WIRE GLASS, LAMINATED SAFETY GLASS, BRONZE OR GRAY ACRYLIC.
ALL OF THESE DOOR STYLES ARE AVAILABLE WITH EXCLUSIVE LARSEN-LOC® OPTION. The Larsen-Loc® provides access to a locked cabinet, without requiring the breaking of glass. During an emergency, it permits the cabinet door to be opened simply by pulling sharply on the handle. Factory applied decal reads: “IN CASE OF FIRE ONLY – PULL FIRMLY ON HANDLE”. By specifying the Larsen-Loc®, access to a locked cabinet is totally independent of the desired door style and glazing. All door styles can be combined with the Larsen-Loc®, including a solid metal door. The standard Larsen-Loc® on a Solid Door would be appropriate for gymnasiums or any locations where emergency access is required but where any kind of glazing or glazing opening may not be suitable. The Solid Door with Larsen-Loc® also can be specified as an Institutional Door (emergency access only with a key) by deleting the pull handle and decal.
NOTE: “FS” models denote “Flame-Shield” fire-rated cabinets. When specifying “Flame-Shield” fire-rated cabinet option for the Architectural Series, refer to the dimension chart at left and select from the models with an “FS” prefix.
* Inside box depth is 4¾” when supplied with aluminum door and trim. The AL2409-5R has a 1¼” square trim.
† Trimless cabinets must be installed before drywall because their plaster stops must be behind the drywall. Trimless is not recommended for block wall installation.
** Deduct ¾” from H x W dimensions for cabinets with aluminum door and trim. This does not apply to “FS” fire-rated option.
♦ To comply with ADA wall projection guidelines, this cabinet must be mounted with its leading edge at or below 27″ from the finished floor.
♦♦ To comply with ADA wall projection guidelines, this cabinet must be specified with recessed handle
