The safe and secure storage of all of your facility's finished products and materials is critical for the health, safety, and overall success of your operation. Proper chemical storage cabinets are necessary to ensure the integrity of all hazardous materials. Moreover, bin shelving can be used to store other products and make your facility more secure against possible damage from fire or contamination from spills.

Chemical & Flammable Storage Cabinets
To prevent fires and dangerous exposure to hazardous fluids, you need to take special precautions in the storage, handling, and usage of these materials. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the International Code Council (ICC) have both created rules that guide the safe storage of flammable materials under the Uniform Fire Code. Moreover, mandatory regulations have been developed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which stipulate different requirements for general industry, the construction industry, and the shipyard industry.
Durham storage cabinets and other brand name storage units help meet these regulations. Under the OSHA code, they need to meet several requirements, including a thickness throughout of at least 18 gauge, a double-walled construction with at least 1" airspace, riveted or welded joints, a three-point latch, a door raised by at least 2", and a warning sign on self-closing doors indicating flammable liquids inside.
Using bin shelves is one of the easiest ways to make your operation safer and more efficient. They make it easy to sort parts and components for easy retrieval on the factory floor, in retail displays, or in general storage locations. They also look great, and are typically available in bright colors.
There are several different types and styles available, each suitable for different applications. Bin styles include shelf, stacked, corrugated, and steel construction. You can also find specialized storage cabinets with several different storage options, including bins and extras like hooks and oversized shelves.
