JL Industries Fire Extinguisher Cabinets Clear Vu Series

A convex acrylic bubble door and 4″ tub depth are the primary features of our Clear Vu Series cabinets. The transparent bubble (available in clear, red or bronze acrylic) projects a nominal 2 1/2″ past the cabinet trim, enabling 180° vision of the extinguisher for quick identification in an emergency. The resilience of the bubble makes it both safe and durable. The 4″ tub depth, meanwhile, allows for full recessing into today’s thinner walls, reducing the need for costlier semi-recessed units. Combined, these features make this cabinet ideal for long, narrow hallways or corridors, where the thin walls are common and ease of location is essential.

If Clear Vu cabinets are to be stationed in areas where the A.D.A. code applies, you must use flat trim cabinets only because of the projection of the bubble.


The tub of the Clear Vu is white powder finished cold rolled steel, unless otherwise specified in options. The Clear Vu’s door and trim are available in steel, aluminum, stainless steel, bronze or brass.

All cabinets feature a 1 3/4″ face width on the trim and the door. All semi-recessed cabinets with a 2 1/2″ RT and 3″ RT have trims with a rolled edge construction. All other trim configurations are square edged.

All cabinets come standard with a continuous hinge. The flush cabinet door consists of a formed design with 5/8″ nominal thickness. The doorstop therefore extends 5/8″ into the tub. The standard door hardware consists of a zinc plated pull handle and roller catch. A cylinder lock with flexible cam is standard for SAF-T-LOKTM doors.
