The Justrite Sure-Grip EX safety cabinet is a hazardous storage cabinet that has two manually closing doors and can be used to store safety cans containing flammable liquids. The cabinet is made of 18-gauge galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust, dents, and certain chemicals. Gauge is a measure of thickness (the lower the gauge, the thicker the material). The cabinet is double-walled, with 1-1/2 inches of space between the walls, to reduce the risk of fires. The yellow powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. A three-point latching system helps keep the cabinet door securely shut. The door handle accepts a padlock to help secure the cabinet's contents and prevent unauthorized access. The door is attached to the cabinet with a continuous piano hinge, which is more secure than typical butt hinges. The door sill is 2 inches high to help keep out moisture.
Each adjustable shelf can hold up to 350 pounds and slopes slightly to direct spills to the back of the cabinet. Two 2-inch vents allow internal vapors to escape. Each vent has a flame arrester to help prevent liquids inside the cabinet from igniting. A ground connection facilitates grounding and helps prevent static sparks. Four adjustable feet enable the cabinet to be leveled. A safety warning label in English, French, and Spanish alerts users to the cabinet's contents. Reflective labels help make the cabinet visible in the dark. The cabinet is FM Approved for quality assurance and meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.106 and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Code 30 for the safe storage and handling of flammable liquids.
Hazardous storage cabinets are used to store, organize, and segregate safety cans containing flammable or hazardous liquids. Some cabinets are made of galvanized steel and are double-walled to reduce the risk of fires. Others are made of polyethylene, which is resistant to certain acids and corrosive liquids. Cabinets may have standard hinged doors that close manually or self-closing hinged or sliding doors that close automatically. They can be color-coded: yellow for flammables; red for combustibles; blue for corrosives; green for pesticides; silver or light neutral for laboratory materials; and white or gray for other waste or outdoor lockers. Certain cabinets are FM Approved and meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for the storage and handling of flammable liquids. Hazardous storage cabinets are used in a variety of commercial and industrial environments and can also be suitable for home use.
