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.

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.
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.
