Indoor vs Outdoor Dangerous Goods CabinetsWholesale Safety Storage Australia
Compare Features of the Indoor and Outdoor Dangerous Goods Cabinets
There are a number of key differences in the build of the indoor dangerous goods cabinets in comparison with the outdoor range of cabinets. We will highlight a number of these differences here, to help you in your decision making process.
One of the first differences we tend to notice is in the price. As of the time of writing, the most popular cabinet on the market – the indoor 250L flammable liquids storage cabinet, is priced at $1,645.00 + gst. Compare that with the outdoor 250L flammable liquids storage cabinet at $2,340.00 + gst.
So let us highlight the bang you get for your bucks with the outdoor range of dangerous goods storage cabinets, as it is these differences that make the outdoor cabinet range suitable for the harshest of Australian conditions.
