Your ‘Mini-Safe’ for Dangerous, Flammable Liquids

Don’t expose containers of flammable liquids to the possibility of spill and damage from traffic in the area.

Where should flammable liquids be stored?

In safety cabinets because they’re what should be stored in a flammable storage cabinet for you or your workers to have quick access to instead of in a storage room.

And because OSHA regulations and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes say that if you have flammable liquids outside of a storage room or fire protection area, they must be stored in an approved safety cabinet.

NOTE: Incompatible chemicals need to be segregated.

 

What is an approved safety cabinet and what’s so great about it?

Check out this video

  • Specially designed and ruggedly built steel enclosure (or can be made of plastic or non-metallic laminate for acids and other corrosives)
  • Double-wall construction protects the contents from heat
  • An off-the-floor sill contains any leaks or spills
  • Built-in flame arresting vents allowing flammable vapors to escape, but preventing flashback ignition and explosion
