Why You Need Proper Storage For Aerosol Cans

Aerosol cans need proper storage to be kept safe around the working space. Used in both industrial and private areas, it is best to understand the benefits of these storage units and why you need them on-site. Our professional team of experts can guide you through the range, assisting you in choosing all the ideal storage solutions for your on-site needs. These storage units ensure both ventilation and protective elements to separate any products being used from potential hazards around them. Read on to find out more about these steadfast solutions.

Storage Units For Flammables 

These elements and containers that need to be stored use propellants and solvents to dispense the active ingredient from the can and maintain an even consistency. Hydrocarbons, propellants, methylal, and dioxolane, are all within the mix and are highly flammable. Not to mention that most of the active ingredients in these product ranges are also flammable. These resources can easily be set alight if exposed to extreme heat or fire. Therefore, they need to be stored within a separate enclosure to ensure protection and safety.

Ideal Storage Scale 

A dedicated aerosol cage is manufactured according to strict guidelines, which assert restrictions and codes for storing and handling gases in cylinders. These containment solutions fulfill many essential functions within the workspace to ensure safety at all times.

Proper Ventilation 

As these units have perforated walls, they are well and naturally ventilated at all times, ensuring no build-up of fumes and pressure. If a canister should leak, all flammable elements will be safely ventilated away from the container.

Meshed Protection 

These designs also feature heavy-duty steel construction, which offers projectile projection. This means that in the case of a can, or multiple cans, exploding, the outer frame of the container should catch almost all of the debris. The explosion would be contained within the cabinet.

All Element Protection 

These storage solutions also keep the containers and items undercover, protected from the weather and sunlight that could otherwise damage the containers over time. Weather exposure can cause corrosion which may interfere with the valve and button components, while direct sunlight can deteriorate the can or cause it to overheat and explode.

Aerosol cans are a much-needed item in many settings that needs to be stored correctly not to cause undue risk. With our professional range of solutions, you can get all the protective storage units you need. Contact us today to find out more about our solutions.

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.
