Subchapter W. Minimum Standard Rule Revisions that May Affect Compliance

Fire Extinguisher

746.5305 Where must I mount fire extinguishers?

This rule has been amended to clarify that if the state or local fire marshal or the manufacturer's instructions for mounting a fire extinguisher are different from those outlined in minimum standard rules, you must follow those instructions.


Does this mean that if my operation follows the manufacturer's mounting instructions and they are different from the minimum standard rule requirements for mounting, I will not be cited?

Yes. In fact, your operation is required to follow the manufacturer's mounting instructions. If the manufacturer does not provide specific instructions, you should follow those outlined in minimum standard rules unless directed otherwise by your state or local fire marshal.
