Corrosive Substance Storage Cabinets

Storing corrosive substances in an indoor storage cabinet is important for several safety reasons:

Minimisation of Accidents:

Indoor storage cabinets are designed with safety features including spill containment trays, ventilation systems, lockable doors and proper labeling. Storing corrosive substances in these cabinets reduces the likelihood of accidental spills or leaks, which can lead to chemical reactions, fires, or injuries.

Protection from Environmental Factors:

Corrosive substances are often sensitive to environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and direct sunlight. Storing them indoors in a controlled environment helps prevent exposure to these factors, which can potentially cause the substances to degrade, leak, or become even more hazardous.

Accessibility and Organisation:

Indoor storage cabinets are designed to keep corrosive substances organised and easily accessible. This makes it easier for workers to locate and use the substances when needed, reducing the risk of accidents due to mishandling or improper storage.

Protection of Personnel:

Storing corrosive substances indoors helps protect personnel who work in the facility. pH7 cabinets are designed to be resistant to corrosion themselves with stainless steel fixings and hinges and an acid-resistant powder coating inside and out.  This provides an extra layer of protection in case of leaks or spills.

Emergency Response:

In the event of an emergency, such as a spill or leak, having corrosive substances stored indoors in designated cabinets makes it easier for emergency responders to identify and contain the situation quickly and effectively.

Risk Mitigation:

Storing corrosive substances indoors in dedicated storage cabinets is an important aspect of risk mitigation. It helps to reduce the potential harm to both employees and the environment, as well as the financial impact of accidents or damage caused by mishandling of hazardous materials.
