Fire cabinets are placed on each floor and in each section separated by fire walls, the distance between them is not more than 30 m. Fire cabinets are placed as close as possible to the corridor exit and stairway, which is used as an emergency escape route as much as possible.

The design flow rate of 100 l / min and the design pressure should be 400 kPa in fire cabinets with round semi-rigid hoses without fire-fighting water intake. If the pressure at the nozzle entrance exceeds 900 kPa, pressure reducers should be used.
Flat hose fire cabinets that can be used in buildings that have to have a trained fire extinguisher must comply with TS EN 671-2 standard. The flat hose; It is imperative that the nominal diameter does not exceed 50 mm, its length does not exceed 20 m, and it is capable of closing nozzles, spraying or sprinkling or all three.
