Flammables must be stored in a reliable and tested cabinet to be safely stored around the working space. Whether dealing with chemicals, harmless liquids, or gas bottles, having the correct container ensures you can store your items and protect your staff without constant concern. Our range has everything you need to ensure the right catchment and protection when storing these items. Read on to learn more about the benefits of having these containers on hand.
When dealing with chemicals that won’t leak or let off fumes but can still lead to dangerous situations, they also need to be kept away from sparks or fires. In these cases, more solid container options incorporate large solid metal sheets. But, again, as there are no fumes, there is no real need for adequate ventilation, and instead, the focus is put on protecting the contents from any external issue.
Liquids In Need Of Storage
You may use a range of products and liquids throughout your working space. However, when these liquids can ignite, they pose a severe hazard to anyone close by if not stored correctly. In industrial spaces, where sparks may be common, improperly stored items can be a significant safety concern as they can easily be set on fire by a stray spark. With the right containers, no spark will reach the bottles or buckets. It takes on spark to ignite these elements; if spilled out or leaked, they could quickly spread around the area. Liquid containment options will have the proper airflow and design to combat potential fume buildup, and spill trays underneath the unit will catch any leaks that might occur over time. With this expertly designed cupboard option, you can safely store flammable liquids.
Compressed Bottles And Gas
Gas bottles always need to be stored away correctly. If not put in a suitable container, they can easily create pressure within the space and increase the risk of an unexpected explosion. These pressurised bottles will slowly release gas into the surrounding area if leaking or are faulty. These cabinets will incorporate mesh and increased airways into their design. These ensure that any gas leaks can be filtered away effectively, and in the case of combustion, the cage will help deter shrapnel. Proper containers can protect your staff and building, containing these bottles in case of fire and protecting them when external accidents occur.
A range of flammable cabinet options is available, giving you the proper safety container for your business needs. These will help you contain these materials to protect them from external hazards and protect your staff and property from the chemicals themselves. Contact us today to find out more.
