The Importance Of Flammable Liquids Storage Cabinets For The Workplace

Class 3 flammable liquids, one of the nine categories of dangerous goods, are used the most often because of their propensity to ignite easily and release energy. There are flammable liquids in practically every workplace. The ease with which they ignite and release energy is one of the main reasons for their widespread use. Engines in power plants, automobiles, earthmovers, generators, and several other devices can all be powered by this energy. Many thinners, cleaning solutions, adhesives, solvents, waxes, polishes, varnishes, and paints also require flammable liquids as essential constituents. Hence, it is a necessity to make use of flammable storage cabinets to protect your employees and workplace.

Common Application Functions

  • Transport and logistics companies
  • High-rise structures
  • Farms and production facilities located in remote areas
  • Infrastructure for laboratories and research
  • Hospitals and educational institutions
  • Sports stadiums
  • Theme parks
  • Malls
  • Industrial and Manufacturing Plants

Effective Protection 

When flammable liquids are used in the workplace, care must be taken to prevent packaging damage and contamination of the liquid contents. Liquids that are flammable may seep into the workplace if packages containing them are damaged. Flammable liquids that are not contained spread flammable vapours more quickly. These flammable vapours will catch fire and injure individuals and property if they come into contact with an ignition source.  Common class 3 flammable liquids include acetone, adhesives, paints, gasoline, ethanol, and methanol.  Minimising exposure and risk to your personnel, your assets, and the environment is crucial. These liquids must be stored carefully and in accordance with your local safety requirements due to their combustibility.

Secure Design

If your company uses, handles, produces, or stores any class 3 flammable liquids, you must control the health and safety risks connected with those liquids to safeguard both your employees and other people at work. A flammable liquid storage cabinet with a dual-skinned sheet steel construction has been produced in strict accordance with AS 1940. The cabinet’s heavy-duty construction will guard against outside moving items damaging its contents.

Our flammable liquids cabinets are designed solely for the storage of Class 3 dangerous goods. The cabinets we supply are manufactured in Australia to ensure they adhere to AS1940-2017 (the storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids).  Built-in vents with flash arrestors, self-closing doors, a spill containment sump with drain, and a yellow gloss lead-free epoxy/polyester powder-coat finish are features of our selection of products.

Important: Assistance with unloading


For items over 30kg, select Tailgate delivery if no forklift is available for unloading. Tailgate deliveries do not qualify for free metro delivery. Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.


Any additional fees from courier companies will be passed on if not advised in advance.


Feel free to contact us immediately after placing your order if required.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
