Flammable Cabinets: Why Workplaces Need Them

by | Jul 2, 2018 | Environmental Consultant

Flammable cabinets are designed to store and house flammables of any type. Whether you work with paint, petrol, or any other flammables, you need to keep them safe and away from other products. Certain flammables can react with the air around them or other materials and spontaneously combust. Others give off sickening fumes that must be controlled. Along with such, you could have a serious issue on your hands if one of the containers leaked everywhere. The goal of the cabinet is to keep these products secure and set apart from others.

Flammable cabinets come in a variety of sizes, though they are usually rectangular in shape. In most cases, they are sized in litres. Some are smaller and only house one product (or multiple small containers). Others are tall and include one or more shelves that are adjustable in height. You can remove them if you have a large drum or space them appropriately to house multiple products at once. Depending on how many flammables you work with or have onsite, you may need to purchase multiple cabinets to ensure that nothing is overcrowded, which can also lead to spills and combustion.
