Hazardous Material Storage

Special protective measures and regulations are to be observed for the storage of hazardous materials (flammable liquids). DIN EN 14470-1 contains the essential requirements for the safe storage of hazardous materials.

    • Minimising the risk of fire in connection with the storage of combustible materials
    • Minimising vapours emitted into the environment
    • Containment of possible leakage inside of cabinets


    This standard for the storage of hazardous materials results in further specific requirements for the design and properties of fire resistance, doors, ventilation, floors and drawers, floor drip pans and information and labelling to be provided.

    Files and document storage

    In every company there are records and documents, which need to be kept under tight wraps and stored securely. The need of such storage derives from statutory periods of safekeeping for business documents, such as those listed in the Commercial Code. The obligation to preserve records is an integral part of tax and commercial accounting and record requirements. Consequently, everyone required to keep books and records by tax or commercial law is also required to store these. It is further recommended to safeguard and protect HR as well as R&D documents.

    To safely keep documents is comprised of two areas of action:

    • The protection against unauthorized access by third parties.
    • The protection against destruction by fire, water, moisture, and light.


    Companies need to ensure such protection for their files, records and documents.
