The DSEAR ACoP L136 paragraphs 94-96 (Dangerous Substance & Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 – Approved Code of Practice) along with Appendices A & B and paragraph 104 detail the performance requirements for fire resisting cupboards and bins. They do not specify an absolute test or standard for the cabinets or bins, rather they relate to the nominal construction principles. Namely:

The materials used to form the top, bottom, sides, doors, lid and back provide a fire resistance of 30 minutes.

  1. All joints at corners should be free from openings or gaps.
  2. Doors/Lids should be close fitting to the frame of the cabinet/bin such that there is a nominal overlap between the frame and lid/doors in their closed position.
  3. That all materials used in the construction of the cabinet/bin should have a melting point greater than 750°C.

All hazardous substance cabinets supplied by Storage N Stuff Limited are manufactured in 0.9mm and 1.2mm mild steel providing a fire resistance of 30 minutes, with fully welded seams throughout, doors are reinforced to prevent distortion and are fitted with a two point locking handle with two keys.

Shelves are adjustable in 25mm increments and act as a 25mm deep spill tray. The bases of the cabinets/bins have a built-in, non-removable spillage sump with a depth of 50 – 150mm depending upon the size of the cabinet.

Storage N Stuff Limited cabinets and bins comply to the guidelines set out in the HSG51 Storage of Flammable Liquids.

Highly Flammable Liquids and Liquid Gases Regulations, Section 5(1.D) and the guide to regulation No. 5(17), together with the Factory Inspectorates Certificate of Approval No. 1 parts 3 and 4.

All materials used to manufacture our cabinets and bins are in accordance with BS476 parts 20 and 22 to give a 30 minute fire resisting structure.

Within this document the following statements confirm the points made above and detail the basic requirements for fire resisting cupboards which do not specify a test or standard to the cupboard itself but do relate to nominal construction principles. It also continues to explain that there are more demanding standards which refer to the complete cabinet structure i.e. BS EN 14470-1:2004.

Statements:

Paragraphs 94 –96, along with Appendices A & B and paragraph 104 in the DSEAR ACoP L136 detail the performance requirements for fire resisting cupboards and bins. It is important to recognise that these do not specify an absolute test or standard for the cupboard or bin itself, rather they relate to nominal construction principles.

Namely:

  1.    i.        that the materials used to form the sides, top, bottom, door(s) and lid are capable of providing the required fire resistance (i.e. 30 minutes integrity) and reaction to fire (i.e. minimal risk);
  2.   ii.        that the joints between the sides, top and bottom of cupboards and bins should be free from openings or gaps;
  3.  iii.        that the lid / doors should be close fitting against the frame of the bin/cupboard, such that there is a nominal overlap between the frame and lid/doors in their closed position;
  4.  iv.        that the supports and fastenings should be of a material with a melting point greater than 750°C.

These criteria represent the minimum performance requirements for compliance with the current legislation. However, it is to be noted that there are a number of more demanding standards and design specifications, which refer to the fire performance of the complete cabinet structure, including: BS EN 14470-1:2004 'Fire safety storage cabinets – Part 1: Safety storage cabinets for flammable liquids'; Factory Mutual, Underwriters Laboratories and ANSI/NFPA 30 standards. Where standards go beyond the minimum requirements of UK health and safety legislation, it is to be emphasized that their implementation in the UK is not a legal requirement. However, for quantities in excess of the recommended maxima employers / duty holders may find cabinets with enhanced fire performance help in making their risk assessment demonstration.

It is of course the responsibility of the employer/duty holder to ensure that cabinets to any particular standard or design specification do meet the minimum legal requirements. Equally, the use of cabinets with enhanced fire performance should not be seen as a substitute for the provision of dedicated store rooms and outdoor storage areas for the safe keeping of containers which are nominally empty or are not needed for current work.
