For safety reasons, all toxic gases and chemicals, flammable or highly flammable have to be kept and stored close to the work area in a safe and organised way. Hence, do not hesitate to contact us for storage solutions pertaining to flammables in accordance with your security needs.
What is a Flammable Safety Cabinet?
Safety cabinets for flammables protect chemicals from fire risks or unusual heating sources. The fire protection is assured by keeping the flammables into the cabinet. This is done by various means: automatic doors closing (available on some of our models) and / or thermo-expanding seals of the doors allowing to isolate the internal body – or also the availability of thermo-fuses which automatically seal off the ventilation system (EN 14470). Some models are also equipped with a fire-extinguisher unit within the cabinet, thus preventing fire to break out in the Safety cabinet.
NORMS AND REGULATIONS:
European Norm EN 14470-1 AND EN 14470-2
