Where can I find the requirements for the storage of fire extinguishers and associated chemicals?
If you are just putting the extinguishers in a room to store them, just make sure the room has heat and cooling.
The manufacture has a temperature range they are supposed to be kept in.
Just make sure all inspections are done before placing them in service.
If you are keeping the chemical that goes in them, ask the manufacture or check their web site for storage conditions. Should be about the same plus for powder keep it dry and not open to the atmosphere.
Do you service your own fire extinguishers ??
I am actually looking into the sprinkler system design density and hazard classification of fire extinguishers and the powder chemicals used to service them. I have a customer that wants to expand their storage and not sure how to classify them to determine maximum storage heights.
Since a designer can never predict the future storage uses of the area that would be enforced by NFPA standards, I would tend to review and approve a design for ordinary hazard Class III/IV. This requires some judgement beyond the minimum requirements of the standard.
