I am doing some research for my supervisor and have a question about NFPA 10 Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers. Paragraph A.6.1.3.10.4 states that vented fire extinguisher cabinets should utilize tinted glass. Does anyone know what defines a vented cabinet? And are vented cabinets required?

 

The reason for my research is to determine the requirements for the glass covering the extinguisher in the cabinet.
