How To Protect Fire Extinguishers In Warehouses

How To Protect Fire Extinguishers In Warehouses

Fire extinguishers are an essential safety requirement in commercial and industrial buildings. Their regular maintenance and smooth operation are the responsibility of factory managers to protect a company’s assets and employees in case of a fire.

Forklifts are vital in the day to day running of a warehouse or a factory. However, for a variety of reasons there are occasions that a forklift operator accidentally can hit a fire extinguisher resulting in the extinguisher being unusable and the consequences associated with this occurrence.


Polycarbonate is a transparent, dimensionally stable engineering plastic. It has high transparency and toughness making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Polycarbonate is available in various brands including Makrolon®, Lexan™, Tufffak® and Safeguard.

Allplastics Engineering has fabricated many clear unbreakable polycarbonate guards that are used to protect the extinguisher from forklifts while still being visible to operators and staff.

The maintenance manager at a major pharmaceutical company in Sydney commented “the polycarbonate guards make a dramatic improvement in the number of hours lost due to damaged fire extinguishers as well as costs of replacing fire extinguishers”

In addition to the extinguisher guards Allplastics has fabricated custom made dispensers, boxes, bins and safety barriers that are suitable in environments where the toughness of the material used is important as well as the clarity of material, polycarbonate is the ideal solution in these applications.
