How do I care for my CoSHH Cabinet?
Maintenance is important whilst storing hazardous chemicals. So it will ensure long lasting performance for the hazardous storage cabinet. Here are just a few simple ways on how you can keep your CoSHH cabinet in great condition.
- Don't nest your cabinets. A FAQ we hear is "Can we nest cabinets together?". Although this is highly tempting, this is a bad idea. As it will reduce the fire retardant. Plus negate FM approval of our Justrite cabinets.
- Check the cabinets locks frequently. It's vital to regularly check your cabinet is fully operational. Check doors close properly and the latch works.
- Clean spills. Any harmful substances will collect in the liquid tight sump. This is at the base of the hazardous storage cabinet. So it's important to clean up these spills ASAP. As this will ensure there is no build-up of harmful liquids.
