Justrite Safety Cabinet

A fire can charge through a building in no time. Injuring people, destroying assets, threatening the very existence of your business.

What makes it all the more tragic is that simple proven steps can help reduce the risk of accidents.

Safety storage cabinets serve several critical functions:

  • Safely contain hazardous chemicals to reduce the risk of fire, protecting both personnel and facilities
  • Identify, organize, and segregate dangerous liquids
  • Offer compliance with federal OSHA regulations and state and local fire codes
  • Improve efficiency by allowing solvent to be stored near the points of use
  • Improve security with keyed locking mechanism

A wide variety of code compliant cabinets are available in sizes ranging from 4-gallons (15 liters) to 120-gallons (454 liters). Smaller cabinets allow solvents to be stored at worksite locations saving costly trips to a central storage room. Undercounter, wall mount and piggyback style cabinets add to safe storage, even when space is at a premium. For high capacity storage, including storage of 55-gallon drums, larger sized cabinets designed specifically to house 30-gallon (114 liter) or 55-gallon (208 liter) drums are available. It’s important to note that OSHA Code 29 CFR 1910.106 states that not more than 60-gallons may be Class I and II liquids. Custom sized cabinets are also available for unique requirements.

Safety Containers or Safety Cans are a necessary part of compliance for safety in the workplace. A Safety Can is a useful, hardworking tool that adds convenience while facilitating safe transfer of flammable liquids ensuring the safety of personnel and protection of the facilities where they are used.

Safety Cans serve several critical functions:

  • Safely contain hazardous liquids and control vapors to reduce the risk of fire, protecting both personnel and facilities
  • Offer compliance with federal OSHA regulations and state and local fire codes
  • Improve efficiency with ease-of-use features to enhance pouring and filling operations

Virtually every place of business, and even homeowners, have occasion to use flammable or combustible liquids. Gasoline, chemicals, solvents, and a variety of other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations. Whereas these liquids are relatively commonplace, it is important to understand the dangers they present and the special storage and handling procedures required to ensure safe usage. Reviewing the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) helps determine liquid characteristics and recommended safety practices.

Accidents and fire risks can be minimized by using proper safety equipment. NFPA is specific on what is required of a safety can in order for it to perform as expected under fire conditions. The basic purpose of a safety can is the control of flammable vapors, while providing a convenient means of carrying, dispensing, and storing up to five gallons of flammable liquid.

All Justrite safety cans undergo rigorous testing requirements by independent third party agencies and have received certification from Factory Mutual (FM Approved) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL and ULC Listed). Justrite offers an exclusive Ten-Year Warranty on all safety cans.
