  • Cabinet insulated with high-density rock wool and calcium sulfate panels.
  • Internal finishing with melamine panels, highly resistant to chemical and aggressive vapors.
  • 30 mm thermo-expanding insulating gaskets, which ensure a perfect seal in the event of a temperature rise.

Safety cabinet functions

The main function of a safety cabinet is to protect the modules from unwanted contact with hazardous substances (solid or liquid), in the event of fire, for a defined period of time, and the storage capacity they provide.
Cabinets must be capable of providing the necessary ventilation in the presence of non-hermetically sealed containers, especially those containing volatile substances, mixtures, etc., in order to reduce odours, since the ventilation system must keep the cabinet in a vacuum. Similarly, doors must be fitted with an automatic closing device when the ambient temperature reaches 50ยฐC.
Similarly, the height of the cabinet must not exceed 1.75 meters, and shelves must be of the tray type, to allow for any loss of liquids caused by accidental damage or breakage of containers. The bottom tank must also always be present, to catch any accidental loss of liquids not held by the tray-type shelves, and its capacity must be at least 10% of the volume of all the containers in the cabinet, or at least 110% of the volume of the largest container.
Last but not least, the cabinets are supplied with an earthing system, which must be connected to the electrical installation, to prevent electrostatic discharges.
