Can A Flammable Cabinet Be Stored Outdoors?

One of the leading causes of industrial fires is the improper storage and handling of flammable liquids. If your facility needs to store flammable liquids outdoors, Securall has the right products to meet your exact needs. 

Regulations And Guidelines for Outdoor Flammable Cabinet Storage

Workplaces that store flammable and dangerous materials must have adequate storage and handling procedures to prevent the risk of explosions, injuries, and even fatalities. Furthermore, following mandatory regulations and safety guidelines are a necessity.

General requirements by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for storing flammable liquids outdoors include keeping storage containers no less than 20 feet from a building. In addition, storage containers cannot hold more than 1,100 gallons of liquid, and a five-foot clearance must separate each group of containers.

Selecting The Right Outdoor Flammable Storage Cabinet

When choosing the right flammable storage cabinet, you’ll want to find approved cabinets that meet the requirements from OSHA, NFPA 30 construction and design requirements, and more. You must also check your local requirements for storing flammable liquids outdoors. Based on the state and county your business is located, you may be required to have a cabinet with either self-closing doors or manual doors. Speak to your local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) about the proper location and placement of your flammable storage cabinets.

Securall’s flammable cabinets comply with EPA 40, CFR 264, 265, NFPA Code 30, and OSHA 1910 requirements.

Flammable Outdoor Storage Cabinet Features

Our product line of outdoor weatherproof cabinets provides the same dependable storage for flammables and combustibles as our standard safety cabinets, but with added protection from the elements. Specifically, these products feature double-wall, weatherproof construction, welded with 18-gauge galvanized steel and painted with a weather, impact and UV resistant urethane finish.  

All weatherproof cabinets come standard with corrosion-resistant flush-mounted stainless steel locking handles, and can be upgraded to a stainless high-security hasp lock. Quickly and easily move cabinets to their appropriate location using built-in heavy gauge forklift channels. Once in position, they can be secured with fully welded 7-gauge steel bolt-down brackets with 7/8” diameter mounting holes.
