FIRE-RATED CABINETS FLAME-SHIELD OPTION


GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

The FLAME-SHIELD option is available for a variety of Larsen's fire extinguisher, fire department valve, fire hose and fire blanket cabinets. It is designed specifically to maintain the integrity of one and two hour fire walls with all Larsen's recessed and semi-recessed cabinets.

Warnock-Hersey has certified and listed Larsen's FLAME-SHIELD option for one and two hour combustible and non-combustible wall systems to meet requirements of UBC Standard 43-6 (ASTM E-814).

Larsen's FLAME-SHIELD option assures the specifier that life safety codes will be maintained and by eliminating the need to continue the fire wall within the rough opening, saves the installer considerable time and expense.

Larsen's FLAME-SHIELD option is appropriate for either new construction or renovation projects.
