Class 5.1 Oxidising Agents


Class 5.1 Oxidising Agents Storage Cabinets

Oxidising agents are chemicals that have the potential to donate oxygen or other oxidising substances and promote the combustion or oxidation of other materials. Storing oxidising agents safely is crucial to prevent accidents, fires, and chemical reactions that could lead to harmful consequences. Storing oxidising agents in an indoor storage cabinet that complies with AS 4326 offers several advantages:

Fire Prevention:

Oxidising agents can increase the risk of fires by providing the necessary oxygen or oxidising agents for combustion. Storing them in a designated indoor storage cabinet helps contain any potential fires and prevents them from spreading to other areas of a facility.


Storing oxidising agents indoors, in a designated cabinet, helps isolate them from other incompatible materials. This reduces the chances of accidental mixing with substances that could lead to hazardous reactions.

Temperature Control:

Indoor storage cabinets can provide better temperature control compared to outdoor storage, reducing the risk of temperature-related reactions that might occur with certain oxidising agents.

Protection from Sunlight:

Some oxidising agents can be sensitive to light and may degrade or react when exposed to sunlight. Indoor storage provides protection from direct sunlight, maintaining the stability of the stored chemicals.


Storing oxidising agents indoors enhances security by reducing the likelihood of unauthorized access and potential theft or tampering.

Emergency Response:

In the event of a spill, leak, or other emergency situation, indoor storage cabinets facilitate quicker access to spill response materials and equipment.

Reduced Environmental Impact:

Storing oxidising agents indoors reduces the potential for accidental releases into the environment, preventing contamination of soil, water, and air.
