COSHH Cabinets are secure metal storage cupboards used to store hazardous materials, flammables, and harmful chemicals. With these COSHH cabinets in place, companies can safely store dangerous substances and comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002. Being manufactured in the UK, our COSHH cabinets guarantee safety, security and quality along with quick shipping times from just 2 to 3 working days.
The law states that hazardous materials should be stored in clearly marked, secure containers. COSHH Cabinets, also known as hazardous storage cupboards, enable a business to comply with this requirement, but our cabinets have numerous benefits aside from ensuring legal compliance.
As units that can be locked using a key, COSHH Cabinets prevent access to dangerous materials, either accidentally or from people wishing to acquire or use hazardous substances for any other purpose. A COSHH Cabinet from First Mats can usually be delivered to a UK mainland location within 2 to 3 working days - ideal if a health and safety inspector has identified a breach of storage regulations.
The bright yellow powder coating of COSHH Cabinets makes them instantly recognisable, and they are clearly marked with ‘hazardous’ and ‘flammable’ labels. This ensures the units can be easily distinguished from other storage types.
The robust metal structure of COSHH Cabinets is durable and designed to thwart break-in attempts. Cabinets are also leak-proof due to a fully welded integral sump that contains chemical spillages. Some COSHH Cabinets are even fire-resistant for a set time to prevent danger to life and property.
COSHH Cabinets are suitable for a wide range of organisations, not only those operating in an industrial capacity. Many commercial companies require secure cabinets to store cleaning products, paints, bleaches, fuel, and other potentially hazardous substances. Educational establishments may require COSHH Cabinets for secure storage of materials, such as in chemistry labs, or school swimming pools. But secure storage lockers are equally as beneficial for use in the home, particularly garages and garden sheds, where dangerous solutions may be present.
You can purchase your COSHH Cabinet in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations. Standard on-site storage COSHH cabinets known as Safestor are ideal for general purpose, non-mobile usage. They are designed for many applications and settings and are suitable for a wide range of industries and sectors.
Mobile COSHH cabinets are available with heavy-duty castors. These are useful for situations where the cabinet needs to be moved from one part of the building to another on a regular basis.
We also offer Chemback storage chests for indoor or outdoor use. This model has a lockable lid and ultra-durable construction for maximum safety and security. Finally, the Transbank model is perfectly suited for mounting to a van or truck for safe storage while on the move.
