Research environments using many different types of chemicals have special storage requirements. Whether using acids, bases or solvents, it is critical that incompatible liquids are segregated to avoid disastrous explosions or fire. The SDS (Safety Data Sheet) should be reviewed to determine chemical characteristics and recommended storage practices. Designed to mount on top of our standard 30- and 45-gallon (114- and 170-L) safety cabinets, these Piggyback cabinets create a safe storage space without taking up any valuable floor space. Cabinets can also be used independently as a wall-mount unit or on a countertop. Justrite blue steel Piggyback safety cabinets for corrosives have the same quality safety features as the cabinets for flammables. All models come with double-wall construction, dual vents, grounding wire connections, adjustable shelves, leakproof sills, three-point self-latching doors and leveling feet. Self-close door(s) shuts and latches automatically when a fusible link melts at 165°F (74ºC) under fire conditions. Unique, concealed self-closing mechanism offers obstruction-free access to contents. Additionally, they include polyethylene trays attached to galvanized steel shelves and a separate polyethylene liner for the bottom sump resist aggressive chemicals. Easily remove the liner for quick cleaning of drips and leaks. An all epoxy baked-on powder-coat finish, inside and out, provides increased chemical resistance. Self Close models meet OSHA, NFPA 30, NFPA 1 and the International Fire Code. Cabinets are FM approved and come with a ten-year warranty. Frequently Asked Questions Do I need self-closing cabinet? Flammable liquid safety cabinets self-close requirement depends on your state's fire code. Hazardous material safety cabinets are required to be self-closed everywhere. As a best practice all safety cabinet should be self-close. Will my modification void the FM Approval and Justrite warranty to a safety cabinet or safety can? Modifications to any FM Approved products void the approval of that product and the Justrite warranty. The modification falls outside the evaluation for the approval and FM's quality assurance program. Modifications can make a safety product unsafe.
