Forklifts and Industrial buildings and warehouses go hand in hand. Definitely a force multiplier in your company’s logistics. Forklifts enable your workforce to move goods easier and reach locations that can be reached by hand, all in a relatively safe manner. The only problem with forklifts is that it’s inherently dangerous. You have Propane or Natural gas, as fuel for the forklifts and as such these fuels can potentially cause fires and or explosions causing injuries or damage to property. With Forklift Gas Cylinders they are classified as Class 2 Dangerous Goods.
Hidden within the cylinder that you hold in your hand is a pressurized vessel that contains a substance. Forklift Gas Cylinders if not handled properly can be properly dangerous. If pressure builds up in them they can become proper projectiles, Firebombs or explosives.
For businesses that handle large amounts of Forklift Gas Cylinders be it for selling or for business use Storage of these goods must be taken seriously. Disposing of your Forklift Gas Cylinders is important but from a business perspective where and how you store them could be a lifesaving decision.
All our dangerous goods stores (gas and aerosol cages, indoor safety cabinets and outdoor dangerous goods stores) are designed and manufactured in Melbourne, Australia and have been developed to comply with their relevant Australian Standard.
When storing Class 2 Dangerous Gasses especially when it’s indoors, it’s important that the storage is designed that it minimizes 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 126.96.36.199 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.
