So, for the people that read this blog post on a regular basis you will know we talk about this a lot. This is what sets us apart from the rest of our competitors. We manufacture our flammable cabinet here in the UK. We have full control over every process that goes into making these cabinets from start to finish. These cabinets do not travel half way around the world before they get to your door. They are manufactured and dropped off within a few days. Pretty cool when you think about it.
Many products these days are made in china or the far east however here at hazardouscupboards.co.uk we are mad on quality. We don’t want anything that is below par. We want to sell you the best. In this blog we aim to give you a small insight into how our flammable cabinet are made and the process that goes into this. Its not a very complex procedure and if very similar across our full range.
Let’s get into it:
As a UK manufacture we think that it is only fitting that we buy our steel from the UK too. All our steel is UK manufactured to ensure the best possible quality and the highest grade. This means that there will be minimal flex and movement in the steel, so the cabinet will remain as sturdy as the day it left the factory.
Once we have received the steel from our supplier it is then picked for punching. (At hazardouscupboards.co.uk we have invested vast amounts into our machinery over the last few years. Our new Amada bending cell is more than $800,000 and works 24/7.) Once the steel is picked it is then taken to this Amada bending cell. From here it is loaded automatically and offloaded automatically. This part of the process has very little human action however further into the process it gets a little more hand on.
Once the steel has been punched the construction occurs. The various parts that have been punched go to assembly where the cupboard is erected. We use rivets to fasten our flammable cabinets together as this is the most efficient way. The sides are added and then the base and top to finish.
Due to the size of some of the cupboards we add strengthens to the doors. This is done via spot welding. It is a straightforward process and is done by hand to promote the best possible finish. The hinges are also spot welded on at this point.
Once all the parts are assembled they are ready for the powerplant. This is where they are painted into the desired colour. This can either be yellow, grey, red, white or really any colour you want. There may be a small fee but if you have a larger order to place then generally we can keep the price the same.
Once the hazardous cupboard has passed through the powerplant we are ready for packing and final assembly.
In final assembly the doors are riveted on to the carcass of the cupboard and the product is checked for any issues with the manufacturing process.
The product is ready for packing. Two cardboard boxes are added to the top and bottom and the middle body is wrapped in bubble wrap to prevent any damage when in transport.
We use an ugly freight specialist here at hazardouscupboards.co.uk to minimise the risk of any damage when in transport.
Now you know then general process you can see that we don’t make cheap flammable cabinets here and that only the best steel and manufacturing process will do. We want to make sure that our customers are happy and like the products that they are buying. We know that a flammable cabinet isn’t the sexiest products group in the world, but it is very important for many companies and people. We put everything into the process to ensure your goods arrive on time and in full.
