Safety storage cabinets / Flammable storage cabinets

Storage of hazardous substances at work

In many companies and laboratories, the use of hazardous substances is an unavoidable part of everyday work. During daily use flammable substances can pose various risks to people, the environment and property. The use of special safety storage cabinets for flammable liquids and hazardous substances is highly recommended, reducing the risk of fire.

Flammable storage cabinets (approved according to EN 14470-1 / 14470-2) provide up to 90 minutes fire protection and enable an internal storage of highly flammable chemicals.

Internal storage of hazardous materials

The many different properties of hazardous materials place specific demands on the design of safety storage cabinets. For the storage of flammable liquids, a fire-resistant design is important in order to protect the stored material from a critical temperature increase in the event of fire. For aggressive materials such as corrosive liquids however, the main priority is corrosion resistance.

The space you have available can also have a significant influence on the choice of your cabinet. Integrated storage solutions play an essential role in the modern laboratory. asecos laboratory safety storage cabinets can be perfectly integrated into laboratory benching, blending into the room structure. Our freestanding cabinets create the perfect central storage point for all laboratory personnel.

asecos offers a wide range of fully customisable safety storage cabinets (hazardous material cabinets) for the storage of compressed gas cylinders as well as for the storage of flammable and non-flammable, aggressive hazardous materials and chemicals. Every asecos safety cabinet is tested according to BS EN 14470-1 or 14470-2 (fire resistance 90 minutes) and TRGS 510, GS-certified, CE-compliant & EN 16121 / EN 16122 compliant. Cabinets in the Q-CLASSIC-90 and Q-CLASSIC-30 model groups and over 20 under bench safety storage cabinets have been successfully tested according to UL Standard 1275 and ULC /ORD – C1275-84-Standard.

Cabinet models are available in various widths with a wide variety of equipment options (e.g. with shelves, full-extension sliding runners or with a bottom collecting sump), with self-closing doors, folding doors, hinged doors or vertical runners.


Ventilation / extraction of safety storage cabinets

In most cases the atmosphere inside the safety storage cabinets need to be extracted. asecos cabinets are prepared and ready for connection to a ventilation system as standard. The connection points are located on the ceiling of the free-standing tall cabinets which makes it possible to place several units side-by-side. Under bench cabinets have their connection points at the rear for convenient integration into the fume hood. If it is not possible to connect to a central ventilation system or LEV, asecos offers plug-in filtration systems, where hazardous fumes are extracted and then filtered and released into the working environment as clean air.
