Aerosol Cans are everywhere. From whipped cream, various food items, Paints, deodorants, Odorants, cleaning solutions, medicines, paints and even Self defense products like pepper spray and mace? It’s such a convenient delivery method that in almost all aspects of our daily life we can find an aerosol can that can fix a problem we’re having. Despite being everywhere and being so easy to use Aerosol Cans are still considered Class 2 Dangerous Goods.
Hidden within the can that you hold in your hand is a pressurised vessel that contains a substance. Aerosol Cans if not handled properly can be properly dangerous. If pressure builds up in them they can become miniature projectiles, Firebombs or explosives.
For businesses that handle large amounts of aerosol cans be it for selling or for business use Storage of these goods must be taken seriously. Disposing of your aerosol cans is important but from a business perspective where and how you store them could be a lifesaving decision.
You will have noticed now that when you take a trip to the hardware store to buy spray paint that they are now stored in a cage. This is because they need to be stored in accordance with AS/NZS 3833-2007 under the Australian Dangerous Goods Code. As well as saving space there are six major reasons that you should store your aerosols in a cage.
- Security – Keep them locked and out of reach.
- Weather Projection – Stable environment, aerosols don’t like swings in temperature.
- Projectile Protection – if there is an accident the cage will provide protection.
- Shelving/Storage – plenty of safe shelving.
- Ventilation – helps to cool the cans.
- Isolation – store the cans in an isolated area in your workplace or home.

When storing Class 2 Dangerous Gasses especially when it’s indoors, it’s important that the storage is designed that it minimises the potential risk the corrosive material brings to your business. This is achieved by designing and manufacturing the cabinet according to Australian standards, and that means following some features.
Construction: Our Class 2 Dangerous Gasses Storage Cabinets are made from Non-combustible materials. Our cabinets are made from heavy duty zinc anneal steel. Our cabinet’s floor, walls, doors, and roof are made with solid steel. The storage cabinet has built in natural ventilation because of the perforated side panels, these are all in accordance with Australian Standards.
The walls of our storage cabinets include built in ventilation on every side.
The walls of our storage cabinets include built in ventilation on every side. The shelving of our cabinets are made of galvanized steel thus improving their structural integrity. Due to the innate strength of the material our shelving can handle the maximum load the cabinet is rated for, at all times. The ventilation helps prevent highly flammable fumes from accumulating inside the cabinet.
The cabinet will then be sealed by Two coat protective finish these makes our cages perfect for outdoor use: undercoat = epoxy powder / topcoat = UV-stabilised polyester powder We chose these coating over conventional paint because they leaves a more durable coating compared to paint. Powder coating also makes cleaning the cabinet easier while also keeping the superstructure of the cabinet safe from oxidation / rust, since the cabinet is primarily made of steel.
What are Class 2
As defined by Section 188.8.131.52 of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code. “A gas is a substance which:
At 50C has a vapour pressure greater that 300kPa; or is completely gaseous at 20C at a standard pressure of 101.3 kPa”
There are three subclasses in Class 2.
The contents of these are just half of the potential danger they can pose. Remember these goods are stored in pressurised vessels. Even if the contents inside are non-toxic a risk comes from the vessels being pressurised. This extreme pressure if suddenly released either through a catastrophic failure of the valve block, a breach in the cylinder itself or from uncontrolled increase in pressure from within, can turn a simple cylinder into either a projectile or a bomb. Either of those can cause damage to people and property at worst it can also result in death.
In Australia the storage and handling of Gas Cylinders is regulated to minimise the risks they can subject people and property in the workplace.
Our range of chemical safety cabinets, flammable storage cabinets, flammable safety cabinets, toxic / poison storage cabinets, pesticide safety cabinets and gas cylinder cages are the ideal storage devices for your workplace.
