There are many reasons why you should buy it. First and foremost, a fire extinguisher cabinet will protect the extinguisher from damage. Secondly, since it is placed in a specific place, this makes it less likely for people to misuse the fire extinguisher. Thirdly, in case there is a fire, it will be a lot easier to find the fire extinguisher as the cabinet is easy to identify and access.
The cabinet also protects the fire extinguisher from being damaged by the environment (water, dirt and dust). Some of the cabinets come with alarm for extra security. The cabinet comes with restraining straps to wrap the fire extinguisher. This keeps the fire extinguisher in place and secure when it is inside the cabinet. Last but not least, these cabinets can be mounted to just any wall or floor.
The proper height for the cabinet for accessibility, the fire extinguisher should be placed not more than 48 inches above the floor. If you are going to place the fire extinguisher in a cabinet, be sure that it does not exceed this limit.
