Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the effects of hazardous waste can include cancer, birth defects, physiological/physical malfunctions, and behavioral abnormalities. And these are just the known effects of hazardous materials. When lab workers work with any materials like these every day, they should be able to store them safely and effectively for themselves and others around them.
Safety and Storage Cabinets are extremely important in any laboratory and can protect lab workers from these hazardous materials. They can store materials such as combustibles, pesticides, flammables, corrosives, etc. They are also useful for organization, as many laboratories have cabinets for parts and accessories, emergences, LPG & Gas Storage, etc. Note that it is extremely critical that specific materials are segregated in storage to avoid either explosions or fires. Review the Safety Data Sheet to determine recommended storage practices.
LabSafetyShop.com is dedicated to keeping lab workers safe, and that’s why we offer a wide range of high-quality safety and storage cabinets. Take a look at our selection here. Made from materials such as aluminum, steel, polyethylene, and wood laminate, our cabinets shelter harmful and dangerous materials. And how do we do that?
Well, our models are purposefully constructed with double-wall bodies, meaning materials are vacuum sealed inside—nothing is allowed to escape or enter. This makes our cabinets ideal for sheltering flammable materials and reducing the risk of fire in labs. Our safety cabinets are also designed with dual vents and grounding wire connections, as well as adjustable shelves that can accommodate different size storage materials. Doors automatically latch when pushed shut and cabinets have leveling feet to ensure all they sit straight even if the ground is not level.
