The following set of questions and answers explain the hazards associated with paint, and the approved methods for storing large quantities of paint and spray paint.
Should paint be stored in a flammable cabinet?
If you're handling, mixing and dispensing paint, it should be stored in a flammable cabinet when not in use. This is the best way to safely and securely store paint at a manufacturing or processing plant, laboratory or commercial institution. A flammable cabinet provides extra fire resistance, and helps to protect personnel and property. Eagle offers safety cabinets specifically designed for paint and spray paint storage. They feature additional shelving designed to store 1-gallon paint of ink cans, or aerosol cans. Made from 18-gauge (1.27 mm) double walls of welded steel, the air gap between the walls insulates the paint from the heat of a fire.
What are the hazards associated with paint storage?
Storing large quantities of paint outside of an approved container can put personnel and property at risk. It may also result in fines. To store paints and spray paints in compliance with codes and regulations, consider Eagle’s paint storage cabinets. All are FM-Approved, and meet NFPA Code 30 and OSHA requirements.
What are OSHA requirements for paint storage?
OSHA 1910.106 covers volume limits for paints and spray paints in safety cabinets. There is also a limit on the number of safety cabinets in each area.

Is paint a flammable liquid?
Most paints are considered Class III flammable liquids. This includes oil-based paints and some water-based paints when used in spray form due to the propellant. While some paints are more flammable than others, it’s important to organize and segregate paints to avoid potentially hazardous situations. That’s why there are paint storage requirements set forth by OSHA and NFPA.
How should spray paint be stored?
Spray paint is considered a flammable liquid. Therefore, it should be stored in an approved flammable cabinet. Always check the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for your aerosol spray paint cans. This document describes the hazards of the chemicals in the can. If storing with other paints, make sure to group paints accordingly to the NFPA 704 hazard classifications.
