Difference Between Red & Yellow
(Fort Lauderdale, Florida)
Hi. I was looking at your fire cabinets and I was wondering what the difference is between the yellow flammable cabinet and the red cabinet? We are a mine boat yard and need to decide which one we need for storing paint.
Thank you for contacting us! These cabinets are featuring different colors based on what type of chemical they are storing. The colors are based on SE colors recommended for each type of product storage.
Yellow is meant for flammables, while red is meant for the specific storage of both paints and inks. Since you have indicated that you will be storing paint, the red cabinet would probably work best for your location.
Flammable cabinets are designed with your safety in mind. Each cabinet comes with several built-in safety features. Some of these features include:
- Self Closing Doors: These doors come with a latch to automatically close the doors when temperatures get too high.
- Double Walls: An additional wall helps keep your materials safely inside the cabinet. The double wall can serve as a backup layer in the event of a spill.
- Vent: Each cabinet comes with a vent to help keep your flammable properly ventilated.
- 1 1/2 inch Air Space: Gives further protection and air flow to your flammable materials.
Additionally, each of these cabinets meet OSHA compliance, as well as NFPA standards. This helps keep you in compliance with safety regulations, saving you in costs & keeping your facility safe.
Depending on your storage requirements, additional flammable cabinet colors include blue for the storage of corrosives, and green for the storage of pesticides.
