Storing materials classified as ‘dangerous goods’ under the Australian Dangerous Goods (ADG) Code isn’t always easy. On the one hand, these materials often prove to be essential for businesses in their day to day operations. Things like batteries or pesticides cannot easily be removed from the equation for these enterprises. On the other hand, safe storage of these materials is essential to reach compliance with relevant Australian standards.
At Wholesale Safety Storage Australia, we help clients by carrying an array of different dangerous goods storage cabinets. These cabinets are largely Australian made and have been built to comply with various Australian standards for the storage of ADG graded materials. We can help you find the right storage cabinet for your needs based on the type of material you are handling and where you intend on storing it.
Building a Dangerous Goods Store: What Types of Cabinets Are Available at Wholesale Safety Storage Australia
If you are looking for dangerous goods cabinets in Australia, take a look at what we have to offer at Wholesale Safety Storage Australia. Our cabinets for ADG materials include:
- Flammable Liquid Cabinets: Flammable liquids are classified as Class 3 dangerous goods under the ADG Code. Liquids falling into this category may include paints, varnishes, or lacquers. They should be marked with a red symbol that reads ‘Flammable Liquid’ and includes the number 3. Dangerous liquid cabinets for Class 3 flammable liquids are available from Wholesale Safety Storage Australia.
- Corrosive Chemical or Substance Cabinets: Class 8 of the ADG Code includes all ‘Corrosive Substances.’ These substances are defined as materials that ‘will cause severe damage when in contact with living tissue’ and that can ‘materially damage’ other goods or materials in the case of a leak. These substances should have a symbol indicating a chemical spill and emblazoned with the word ‘Corrosive’ and the number 8. Both liquids and solids (such as batteries) can fit into this category.
- Toxic Substance Storage: ‘Toxic and Infectious Substances’ is Class 6 of the ADG Code. Toxic substances are those substances likely to ‘cause death or serious injury’ if swallowed or inhaled, or if they have contact with the skin. This category would include dangerous gases. Look for symbols that include skull and crossbones.
- Pesticides: Pesticides do not have their own class under the ADG. Instead, they can fit in a few different places, depending on the pesticide type. Sometimes, they might be labelled as toxic, while other times they might be considered as flammable liquids. We can provide cabinets meant specifically for pesticides—ideal for farmers whose only dangerous good usage revolves around pesticide products.
You can use most of our cabinets for indoor storage use, but we can also provide outdoor dangerous goods storage that will provide ample protection from the elements.
