Flammable cabinet – there regulations

 

Many people over look their flammable cabinets and indeed the products that should be stored in them. The employer can be responsible for this if anything happens to an employee. This being said there are many ways round this and one is storing your hazardous substances correctly.

Every flammable cabinet that we produce is of the highest quality. They are all manufactured in our factory here in the UK. This enables us to follow every step of the process and give you the best possible shopping experience. We will keep you updated throughout the shipping process so that you are aware of when your product will be arriving. Should you have any questions at all please get in contact with our sales department. They will be more than happy to help.

 

Below are some of the main regulations that having a flammable cabinet will help overcome. Not all of the below are for storing but we though that it would be good for you to know all the regulations.

  • the properties of the materials to be stored or handled in the workroom / working area. For mixed storage the worst-case situation should be applied, i.e. all materials in the storage cupboard or bin should be considered as being the same material as the one that has the lowest flashpoint.

  • the size of the workroom / working area and the number of people working in it

  • the amount of flammable liquids being handled in the workroom / working area and the quantities of liquid that may be accidentally released or spilled

  • ignition sources in the workroom / working area and potential fire spread in the event of an ignition

  • exhaust ventilation provision to the workroom / working area and / or the storage cupboard or bin

  • the fire performance of the storage cupboard or bin

  • the arrangements for closing the cupboard or bin doors/lid in the event of a fire

  • means of escape from the workroom / working area

All the above regulations have been taken from the HSE website which is great if you need any further information about storing hazardous substances.

These regulations should always be adhered too and never be overlooked. We cannot stress this enough.

Our flammable cabinets are designed to give you the best protection and will keep your workers safe when storing flammable liquids.
