Dear Bob, Here is the reference on fire extinguisher regs from Guidelines for Laboratory Design: Health, Safety, and Environmental Considerations, 4th ed. page 54. "All fire extinguishers must be sized and installed in accordance with NFPA 10 (2010), 'Portable Fire Extinguishers'."

Posting a question for Bob Alaimo (rjalaimo**At_Symbol_Here**<mailto:rjalaimo**At_Symbol_Here**>):

Is anyone aware of specific regulatory guidance for the mounting of fire extinguishers on the walls of chemical storerooms or laboratories? Such as height from floor and marking the area around the extinguisher with a red border or a indicating sign?
