Choosing The Right Type Of Safety Storage Cabinet

The first line of defence against fires, spills, and contamination is a heavy-duty safety storage cabinet. These cabinets, as their names indicate, store hazardous chemicals, corrosives, and flammables safely. Continue reading to find out more about flammable drum storage cabinets and more.


Types Of Safety Cabinets and Their Features 


Storage Of Flammable Liquids 

For maximum fire resistance, flammable liquid storage cabinets must be made of 18-gauge steel. Yellow is the most common colour. From 25 to 205 litre capacity, liquids cabinets come in a variety of sizes and configurations. Flammable liquid safety cabinets must safeguard contents for 10 minutes.


Cabinet For Storing Flammable Drums 

WSSA drum cabinets keep flammable liquids and hazardous waste out of your way while you operate. Our cabinets are zinc anneal steel with reinforced double-wall construction.

The cabinets are covered with a lead-free, high-gloss, baked-on powder coating for enhanced chemical corrosion resistance. ”Flammable Liquid class 3” and “No Smoking, No Ignition Sources within 3 m” labels are also included on the cabinets. In addition, a reinforced liquid-tight sump is included in our combustible drum cabinet collection to prevent leaks.

That adds additional security and allows you to store Class 3 goods. Most of our drum cabinets have shelves that you may adjust or remove as needed. In addition, you have the option of choosing between manual and self-closing doors.

Our combustible drum cabinets all meet Australian Standards and are suitable for both industrial and commercial use. Drum storage cabinets are also appropriate for a variety of 205L flammable or hazardous products. 


What Kind Of Space Do You Require For Your Site? 

Naturally, the size of a safety storage cabinet is essential to consider. You can maximise available floor space by using multiple capacity and configuration options. Determine your company’s storage requirements first, and then select the appropriate size.

Aside from standard floor models, cabinets are available in a variety of forms. In addition, the majority of them have movable shelves for customised storage solutions.

Feel free to contact us immediately after placing your order if required.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
