Ensure your flammable liquids are enclosed with our Flammable Liquid Storage Bins available with either a flat or sloping top. Following the typical protocol of ‘yellow’ being designated to flammable substances, all cabinets are finished in a yellow epoxy polyester coat. In addition to this the appropriate warning labels have been applied to the doors encouraging extra vigilance. Most likely to be used for lab safety; these storage bins are manufactured in 20 gauge mild steel with 18 gauge mild steel lids to protect your flammable liquids.
Available with a flat top or sloping top versions with a lift up lid, these storage bins have a 50mm lip fitted with a hasp and staple for you to attach a lock (not provided) this offers additional assistance to make sure only those with permission can gain access to the flammable substances being held. Also included is a built in spillage sump which works to collect any run-away liquid or residue that may cause harm if exposed. It’s worth noting, any warehouse, lab, factory or workshop that uses flammable substances must store them to adhere to the appropriate health and safety regulations set out.
