The “C” Word

CHEMICALS

It’s time to talk about the “C” word. In the Life Sciences industry, we can all sometimes become numb to the words, conditions or substances that we use on a daily bases. We can forget the power harnessed by these componants and that the consequences that fall back on us.

Chemical substances can be chemical elementschemical compoundsions or alloys. They are the backbone of the Life Sciences Industry and if not handled and stored properly can also have devastating effects.

Just this year, April 2017,  the Cancer Research UK laboratory in Manchester was destroyed through fire, with years of research and millions of pounds of life-saving equipment feared to have been destroyed in the blaze. Fire in Manchester

Proper storage of Chemical Substance should not be a choice, it should be a must.

Storage with No Fire Resistance, the chances of survival, not just damage to the surrounding building are massively reduced.

Storage with 30 Minutes Fire Resistance, the chances of survival and damage to the surrounding building have increased – Provided that all personnel and emergency services can evacuate the building and extinguish the fire in that time frame.

Storage with 90 Minutes Fire Resistance, the chances of survival and damage to the surrounding building have substantially increased – This time frame gives individuals and emergency services the adequate time to evacuate and extinguish the fire, knowing that the CHEMICALS harnessed in the building have no chance of contact the fire.

 

 

TBI Scientific and asecos storage cabinet range are the only providers in the market to offer 90 minutes Fire Resistance and a 10 year warranty, whilst still providing functionality and style.
