Chemical cupboard – how are they made.

Chemical cupboard – how are they made.

 

Chemical cupboards are very similar to hazardous cupboards however are given this name as this is what most people know them as. We do extensive research into what people look for when looking to buy a cabinet and chemical cupboard is high on the list.

In this blog we are going to talk about how a chemical cupboard is made and what they can be used for. When looking for a hazardous cupboard it is very hard to sometimes know as there are many websites and many different styles of cabinets. We like to make it as easy as possible for you to shop what you actually need. Something that isn’t seen all that much.

 

 

 

Our chemical cupboards are all UK manufactured and we have full control over the process from start to finish. This means that all our products are of the highest quality and wont fail after a few years. We have a 10-year warranty on all cabinets to ensure you can buy with no risk at all. A lot of the manufacturing process is done by hand and there are only a few steps that are automated. This has been perfected over the years and we only have a very small amount go through with any kind of defects or blemishes.

 

 

 

So, what are the manufacturing steps of a chemical cupboard?

  1. As a UK manufacture we think that it is only fitting that we buy our steel from the UK too. This means that there will be minimal to no flex or movement in the steel, so the cabinet will remain as sturdy as the day it left the factory.

  2. 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 and offloaded automatically. This part of the process has very little human action however further into the process it gets a little more hands on.

  3. Once the steel has been punched the construction occurs. The various parts that have been punched go to assembly where the chemical cupboard is erected. We use rivets to fasten our cabinets together as this is the most efficient way. The sides are added and then the base and top to finish.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Once the cupboard has passed through the powerplant we are ready for packing and final assembly.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. We use an ugly freight specialist here at hazardouscupboards.co.uk to minimise the risk of any damage when in transport.

Now you know the full manufacturing process to making the cupboards. There are a few smaller steps and it isn’t quite that simple but that’s the boring stuff. Nobody wants to read about that. As you can see however there is no skimping on the price and we do everything we can to ensure that the quality of the cupboards is there. Every step has formal quality control, so nothing is leaving our factory without being perfect. We make hundreds and hundreds of these each week making us the one of the leading suppliers here in the UK.
