DENIOS acid and alkali cabinets allow you to store aggressive substances in laboratories, schools, institutes and universities. Acid cabinets and alkali cabinets feature height-adjustable shelves and doors with safety locks. Each acid or alkali cabinet features a standard waste air nozzle on top of the cabinet.
Laboratories and workplaces frequently make use of acids and alkalis that need to be stored safely and securely in a cabinet purpose-built for corrosives. Although acids and alkalis can be stored together in one acid cabinet they need to be kept in separate chambers at all times. That is because if they are accidentally mixed they can heat up and produce dangerous fumes. For that reason, all our cabinets for storing acids and alkalis include separate chambers to keep substances segregated and are made from environmentally friendly polyethylene with a high level of chemical resistance.
Custom-made Acid & Alkali Cabinets are essential both for work safety and for compliance with government health and safety regulations. Acid Cabinets, when properly used, keep essential chemicals safe and secure while also providing ease of access for authorised personnel, students, visitors and staff members.
DENIOS UK supplies an extensive range of cabinets for storing corrosives, including acids and alkalis. As industry leaders in hazmat storage, we can provide a range of different aggressive substances cabinets to meet all your workplace requirements. These range from free-standing Acids & Alkalis Cabinets with 12 slide-out sumps to Underbench Cabinets with four pull-out draws, including a materials storage compartment.
Sulfuric acid is widely used in iron and steel production, and especially in the automotive industry to remove rust and other impurities from car bodies and parts. This is a powerful acid that needs to be safely stored away when not in use. A secure sheet steel Acid & Alkali Cabinet features corrosion-free ventilation ducts and two separately locked cabinets, to prevent dangerous mishaps or carelessness.
Acids and alkalis are also frequently used in the food industry, together with other potentially corrosive substances. A stainless steel chemical cabinet is suitable for storing food and ingredients as well as industrial chemicals and is easy to clean as well as being acid and moisture resistant.
For small workshops and laboratories, including those in schools and universities, a Small Container Cabinet for storing acids or other aggressive compounds is ideal. These can be fitted with transparent doors, allowing users to see exactly what is inside without opening the cabinet, so limiting contact with corrosive materials and reducing the risk of exposure to toxic gases. Alternatively, a lockable synthetic shutter can be fitted to prevent unauthorised access and secure items against theft or misuse.
When working with and storing all kinds of chemicals, including acids, the protection of the environment is paramount. If substances are accidentally released into the air, water, or the surrounding natural eco-system, then long-lasting and widespread damage can occur.
By storing water-polluting and aggressive liquids in a PolyStore ecological cabinet, not only can hazards up to and including loss of life be avoided, but you will show compliance with environmental laws and regulations and substantially reducing the chances of an accident that could cause irreparable damage to your brand's reputation.
Even with the best handling and full compliance, acids and other chemicals can become increasingly hazardous when stored over time. Using a sealed, acid-resistant chemicals cabinet provides the best safeguard against long-term corrosion from leaking or only partially-sealed containers. Double or triple layers of protection, using separately-sealed and lockable segregated compartments within your acid cabinet, means that even if the outer casing of a corrosive chemical should fail, you are still protected from dangerous breaches into the atmosphere and exposure to incompatible substances.
