About JL Industries, Inc.

For more than 70 years, JL Industries in Bloomington Minnesota has been known for high quality fire extinguishers, cabinets, and accessories, but the addition of the Samson and Thomas product lines has truly given JL the right to claim the “widest selection of extinguisher, valve and hose cabinets in the world”.  Our complete range of fire extinguishers means that virtually every requirement for portable fire protection can be met.  

JL customers now have the convenience of purchasing any product in the combined Samson/JL/Thomas product line of thousands of products including fire extinguishers, AED’s & cabinets, access panels, roof hatches, smoke vents, entrance floor grates & mats, floor doors and corner guards. We offer shipping from 10 locations in the US - serving most major metropolitan areas. Check out our warehouse stock list to see what is available for next day shipping in your area!

In March of 2016, we acquired the business assets of RoofTop Accessories (RTA) based in Tomball, Texas.  RTA has been providing roof top safety rail systems and components to the construction industry since 1998, and JL customers can now purchase the Keycurb™ line of rooftop pipe, railing and equipment supports, plus several types of safety railings.

You also have access to products in Division 11, 12 and 23  that is offered by another of the Activar companies - LabAire Systems, offering Laboratory Casework, Specialty Tables and the High Performance DynamicFLO™ Fume Hood - all designed for highly corrosive materials.  See an overview of their products here.
