Fire Equipment

Fire Extinguishers & Sign Locations:  The Fire Extinguisher to be mounted no lower than 100mm from ground to the bottom of the extinguisher, and no higher than 1200mm from the ground to the top of the extinguisher.  The sign is to be mounted a minimum of 2000mm from the ground to the bottom of the sign.  The sign is to be placed so it is clearly visible from a distance up to 20m in all directions of approach.

Australian standards don’t specify, but normally placed directly above the extinguisher is the 200mm diameter sign stating what type of extinguisher it is.

It is safe to assume these requirements for other fire equipment signage.
