We don’t expect you to be worried about that however as we are the specialists, so you can leave that to us. In this Blog like mentioned previously we are going to break down exactually what you are going to get.

Now you are probably thinking well what can actually go into a hazardous cupboard, and that’s what we are about to tell you. Hazardous cupboards are very important and are often over looked. Any health and safety officer will tell you that many employers don’t think about the harm hazardous substances can cause to the people that work for them. In recent years there has been a real push on this.
So, what are you getting.
To start off with the hazardous cupboard is painted yellow. This signifies that this cupboard is where hazardous materials are kept. Not only does this make it stand out it is also a universal colour for this application, meaning that even an alien would probably be able to identify it. The paint used is also very critical to the cupboard itself. The paint is fire rated to EN 13501 -1 to ensure all regulations are met.
Secondly but by no means any less important the hazardous cupboards have an integral sump. This allows any hazardous materials to drain away and out of harms way. The reason that it is integral is so that nobody can access the hazardous substance potentially cause great harm to them. If the sump was not integral, then an employee may attempt to clean up the substance however is not trained in this matter so is therefore putting themselves in danger.
Each shelf can withstand 70KG UDL which is again a very important factor and here is why. If you have a shelf that will not take the weight this is yet another hazard due to potential spillages or the substance container falling onto another and casing a reaction that nobody needs or wants.
All our hazardous cupboards come with a no snag 2-point locking mechanism to prevent any unauthorised person accessing the hazardous materials. This also means that you can rest easy at night knowing that all the necessary precautions have been met to keep people safe.
All our cabinets come with a choice of sticker depending what substances you are storing. If you are unsure on this then please get in contact with our sales department or read our blog post that will help point you in the right direction.
