Want to know more about Safety Storage

Safety storage for flammable items

Flammability is a major safety concern for laboratories, factories, and other types of facilities. Flammable liquids vaporize below 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while combustible ones vaporize between 100 and 200 degrees. These materials are sensitive to minor changes in temperature, which can have severe consequences. Safety cabinets come in several classes. Class I has the lowest vaporization point, while Class III vaporizes at much higher temperatures. It's essential to know the flashpoint for each of your materials and choose the right can or cabinet for temperature stabilization.

Choose the right capacity for materials

Whether you're looking for an entire storage cabinet, a can, or a portable case, choosing the right capacity ensures that all hazardous materials have safe containment. Cans that can only hold one type of hazardous product are the smallest option. Most safety cans range in capacity from 1 to 5 gallons, although there are much larger options that hold up to 14 gallons. Cabinets are much larger and often accommodate stationary storage, and capacities vary quite a bit.

  • 30 gallons

  • 60 gallons

  • 90 gallons

Protector cases are the most portable option. They are similar to suitcases in structure, but they typically have security closures that prevent unintentional spills and leaks. Shelf strength and capacity is another factor. In addition to checking the overall capacity of a container, verify the strength and weight limit of each shelf in a safety cabinet.

Certification for safety storage

Dangerous materials must fit specific standards to ensure workplace safety. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets requirements for the storage of flammable and combustible materials. NFPA-approved products are optimal for Class I, II, or III flammable items. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also known as OSHA, sets chemical storage standards, and places of employment must follow these guidelines. Choosing cabinets, cans, and cases certified by OSHA saves time and offers another layer of security.
