European materials manufacturer Asecos has introduced a new Type 30 safety cabinet to store hazardous chemicals
Acids, alkalis, flammable liquids and pressurised gases need to be stored directly in secure cabinets, in order to retain their qualities and avoid endangering workers. Asecos’ new range of cabinets conform to European standard EN 14470-1 to give flame resistance up to half hour, stated officials from the company.
The design of the Type 30 is based on the Q Series Type 90 model, also made by Asecos. The doors and body are made of special flame-proof melamine-coated panels. The cabinets have an integrated transport base as a standard, and doors are available in seven different colours.
A single-door Type 30 cabinet is 90 cm wide, can be locked and has a large internal capacity. Q-Classic 30 cabinets are either 60 cm or 120 cm wide. Asecos’s cabinets also prevent internal leakages and ensure any vapours are drawn off by their mechanical ventilation systems, added Asecos authorities.
