Hazardous substances may only be stored in safety cupboards tested for this purpose and which comply with safety standards.

However, these are by no means all guidelines that need to be observed when purchasing a suitable hazardous goods storage cupboard. When hazardous substances need to be stored for a period exceeding 24 hours, then the type of substance, the work processes into which they are integrated, and the hazard class of the substance must be observed. This is decisive for the choice of appropriate storage. Fire resistant hazardous goods storage cupboards are, for example, used for storing flammable liquids. The storage rooms with flammable substances need to be isolated from other rooms.
