Safety Cabinets for Hazardous Materials
Exclusive to Justrite, our hazardous material safety cabinets are designed to meet the requirements of the NFPA 400 Hazardous Material Code, which focuses specifically on the handling and storage of hazardous materials. Each cabinet comes with a Haz-Alert™ reflective label reading "Hazardous - Keep Fire Away", as well as a pack of ten application-specific labels to choose from and apply to the cabinet in order to indicate its contents. All cabinets feature self-closing doors, and many are available with ChemCor® lining for applications that require protection from harsh corrosives.
Research environments use many different types of hazardous chemicals, each with its own special storage requirements. Whether using acids, bases, oxidizers, or water-reactive substances it is critical that incompatible compounds are segregated to avoid disastrous explosions or fire. The SDS (Safety Data Sheet) should be reviewed to determine chemical characteristics and recommended storage practices.
