What is the weight of the other suppliers cabinet?

If the cabinet complies with AS1940 then all the steel wall thicknesses has to be 1.2mm thick. If the weights are lighter than our cabinets then they probably are made from thinner material. Imagine in a $1m insurance claim if the cabinet did not contain an explosion due to inferior manufacturing, You would want to be covered.

Ventilation, do I Need it or Not?
There are no vents from any of our cabinets which allow fumes from the cabinet to be leaked into the room they are in , this could cause fumes in the room to ignite from an exterior ignition source , which is not part of AS1940 .

95% of General Flammable and Chemical goods do not require the cabinet to have any ventilation.
However …..

All of our Cabinets have provisions for air flow through the air cavity between the (1.2mm thick steel) double skins of the cabinet.

There is a 2” (50mm) bung in each side of the cabinet ( one at approx 250mm up from the bottom on the left side and one approx 250mm down from the top on the right hand side )

This allows you to screw in a 2” inlet pipe to introduce air into the cabinet cavity (from outside) and through the spark arrestor (Gauze) into the cabinet and exhaust the air outside through the opposite side with a similar 2” pipe attached to the other side of the cabinet. An installation plan comes in the accessories box inside the cabinet.

You can attach an inline fan to assist air flow if required.
