Do school fire extinguishers have to stand on floor?

I would like to know if the fire extinguishers in schools MUST be placed on floor tray standing as this is a Health & Safety issue, or could be wall mounted and comply with fire regulations?

Jacques, The only UK regulation is that you must be equipped with appropriate fire fighting equipment and that it is easily accessible, simple to use and indicated by signs - the BS is more detailed but is only guidance. Your own risk assessment should determine whether floor standing in trays is acceptable.
