NORMALZATION

Safety cabinets for flammables protect chemicals (by extension also human beings, animals and personal belongings) from fire risks or unusual heating sources. The fire protection is assured by keeping the flammables into the cabinet. This is done by various means: automatic doors closing (available on some of our models) and / or thermo-expanding seals of the doors allowing to isolate the internal body - or also the availability of thermo-fuses which automatically seal off the ventilation system (EN 14470). Some models are also equipped with a fire-extinguisher unit within the cabinet, thus preventing fire to break out in the Safety cabinet.

Toxics and poisonous chemicals must be stored in a specific place equipped with key closing.
