The fireproof and safety cabinets for PPE and fire-fighting equipment are red-painted cabinets with the special, easy to break “safe crash” Plexiglas insert. The cabinets for the storage of PPE comply with the Italian Legislative Decree no. No. 81/2008 on Occupational Safety.
SAFETY CABINET FOR PAINTS AND SOLVENTS
The safety cabinets for paints and solvents, characterised by their yellow paint finishing, are metal cabinets available in two versions, with different sizes and capacities. A watertight collection tank is installed at the bottom of the cabinet, made of galvanised metal plate and with a capacity of 47 l. The cabinets are also equipped with flame-arresting plates, slits for air circulation, a system ensuring electrical continuity and safety adhesive signage. The safety cabinets for paints and solvents by Fami Storage Systems are in compliance with the applicable regulations on storage of chemical products and in particular with the Italian Legislative Decree No. 81/2008 on workplace safety, Legislative Decree no.

CABINETS FOR PHYTOSANITARY PRODUCTS
The safety cabinet for phytosanitary products, characterised by its green paint finish and available in two different sizes and capacities, is designed for storing crop protection products, pesticides and agricultural products. Like the safety cabinet for paints, this cabinet is equipped with a bottom collecting tank, made of galvanised metal plate with a capacity of 47 l, to catch any leaks. Every single container that is inserted must not exceed a capacity of 40 l and only closed containers may be inserted. This metal cabinet is not fluid-tight and therefore, it should not be considered a containment tank. Fami Storage Systems’ phytosanitary product cabinets comply with the Italian Legislative Decree No. 81/2008 on Occupational Safety and with the Presidential Decree of 23 April 2001, No. 290, concerning the procedures for authorising the production, distribution and sales of phytosanitary products and related adjuvants (No. 46, Annex 1, Law No. 59/1997).
