Having a defibrillator is great. However, ensuring it’s displayed, protected and available in a prominent place is also very important. That’s why we’ve launched a free course to teach people how to install a defibrillator cabinet. The course goes hand in hand with our industry-leading choice of cabinets, available from our website
There are so many cabinets to choose from – we stock more than 10 models! So, how do you find the right one?
How to pick an AED cabinet
To protect your AED, you should choose your cabinet wisely. Here’s what we look for when picking one:
- IP66 rated against dust and water
- Outdoor powder coat, to protect against the elements
- Lighting inside…our favourite on activates in darkness using a motion sensor, and the light can be removed easily to use as a torch
- Heated, to house the defib at an optimum temperature
- Viewing window to easily check the status of AED
- A decent warranty…2 years is good
- Stainless steel, as it’s hard wearing and corrosion resistant…especially important near the coast
- Generic hook, to suit any defibrillator
