Cabinet Accessories Questions

There are several types of safety cabinet accessories and parts that can be purchased, including shelves, doors, paddle handles, dividers, locks and keys, and more. These parts may need to be replaced as a result of wear and tear over time, or damage.

The following set of questions and answers relate to common safety cabinet accessories and replacement parts, and the general rules for storing, grounding and locking safety cabinets.

What are the most common safety cabinet replacement parts?

Due to misplacement, loss, or normal wear of parts, common safety cabinet replacement parts include paddle handles and keys, as well as fusible links for safety cabinets with self-closing doors. If accidentally left open, the link will melt under fire conditions and close the door to protect the contents. Therefore, it needs to be replaced. Other accessories and parts that can be purchased for safety cabinets, include shelves and dividers, antistatic wire for bonding and grounding, adapter kits, rolling carts and more.

Are flammable cabinets required to be grounded?

For the safety of personnel and property, it makes sense to ground a flammable cabinet when possible. If you’re going to dispense Class 1 or Class 2 flammable liquids from a container held within a safety cabinet, such as pumping out of a drum or pouring waste into a drum funnel, the cabinet should be connected to an earth ground. Make sure proper bonding techniques between containers are followed. This will eliminate the chance of an electrostatic discharge while handling flammable fluids. Although flammable cabinets are not required by federal regulations, Eagle Flammable Cabinets include a built-in grounding lug, generally located at the bottom right side.

What are the general rules for storing chemicals?

Before storing chemicals, take inventory of all the different types and quantities of each. Make sure to separate chemicals by group to prevent fires and explosions. From there, you can place chemicals in an approved safety cabinet, and use shelves, dividers and trays to keep things labeled and organized. Different color cabinets may be used to help identify the contents inside.

Should chemical cabinets be locked?

For your general safety, you should always lock chemical cabinets. While not a legal requirement, it’s recommended to keep personnel and property safe when unattended. Eagle’s cabinets come equipped with a 3-point key lock to secure the top and bottom, and prevent unauthorized use.
