Sentry® FE is specifically designed for situations where a standard Column
Sentry® would cover up important items mounted on the face of the column.
Column Sentry® FE is a special version of the Column Sentry product outfitted
with a cutout designed to allow and protect items mounted on the column. This
cutout is 10" (25cm) wide by 8" (20cm) deep, resulting in a height of
34" at the cutout. FE stands for Fire Extinguisher, and this was the original
purpose for this product. Customers needed to mount a fire extinguisher on the
column, but because of OSHA regulations, could not mount this above the column
protector. The cutout solution worked so well, it soon became popular where any
type of item, such as electrical boxes or outlets were mounted to the face of
Recently we have found that many customers are asking for the
Column Sentry FE product to be made in red. This is an excellent way to not only
protect the fire extinguishers on the column, but also to designate certain columns
as having a fire extinguisher at that location. As you can see from the photo,
the red Column Sentry FE designates the location of the fire extinguisher at that
location. Other columns in this installation contain standard yellow Column Sentry
products. In a fire or emergency situation, it would be very easy to find the
location of fire extinguisher equipment in this facility.
The Column Sentry®
FE product is available in both the 8"x8" and the 12"x12"
size. The product is installed in the same manner as the standard Column Sentry®
products. The cutout does not affect the location or the function of the hook
& loop straps. Purchasing this product in red does not affect the price, but
may delay shipment.
