New Combined Safety Storage Cabinet Models for Hazardous Materials

May 25 2013 Read 1221 Times

German safety-storage cabinet manufacturer asecos now offers even more combined cabinet models, providing companies with further space-saving and professional storage options for hazardous materials.

Combined safety storage cabinets are compact storage units comprising several compartments, each designed to accommodate certain types of hazardous materials. The type 90 compartment complies with BS EN 14470-1 and is made from fire-resistant materials to store flammable liquids safely.

Each combined cabinet is also equipped with a compartment in which acids and alkalis can be stored separately and thus prevented from coming into contact and causing a reaction.

Because chemical vapours can cause metal components to rust both compartments are made from non-corrosive materials.

The type 90 and the acid and alkali compartments are ventilated via separate ducts and a joint extraction unit in the cabinet ceiling.

To date, asecos has offered tall combined safety storage cabinets with a width of 1200mm and various equipment options. New to its range is a 600mm-wide combined cabinet, as well as 600mm-high underbench units, which are available in a variety of widths. As an extra feature, the type 90 compartment of each combined cabinet now comes with a separate lockable storage box. This can be used, for example, to store toxic substances separately and provide further protection against unauthorised access.

All the new models are available with any number of shelves and drawers, and a choice of folding or double doors.
