You want to ensure that the items are reachable at a moment’s notice, but also that they are not tampered with by curious little hands.

To calculate this, follow these steps.

1. Determine adequate reach height of AED

The AED is the highest mounted item in the cabinet. The AED stores approximately 25” from the bottom of the cabinet edge.

With this is mind, determine how high off the floor you can mount the cabinet that allows the AED to still be easily reached in an emergency.

We recommend an AED reach height of 36” for an average height person.
