This specification provides design and construction criteria for double and single fire and foam station cabinets. These cabinets are classified as Type I (single cabinet) and Type II (double cabinets). Type I cabinets are further subdivided into two grades: Grade 1 which has a right-hand door and Grade 2 with a left-hand door. Each of these grades has three classes according to material: Class A is made of mild steel, Class B with stainless steel, and Class C with aluminium. On the other hand, Type II cabinets have only one grade, Grade 1 with right-hand door active leaf. This grade is further classified into three classes: Class A, Class B, and Class C. The parts of these cabinets shall include: frame, hinge pad, hinge, brace, door, staple, hook, latch, keeper, rivet, clip, snubber, retainer, saddle, strap, clip, washer, back, leg, bolt, and back bar. Fire and foam cabinets shall be free of weld spatter, burrs, and sharp corners, rough edges, and other defects which might be hazardous to personnel and equipment.
