Safety Cabinets for Every Month
Lyon’s large selection of Safety Storage Cabinets help provide protection for your employees and property. Lyon color codes our safety cabinets. Properly labeled, brightly colored cabinet helps to prevent flammable liquids from being mistakenly stored in an incorrect place. We follow industry standards for our color codes. Yellow is for flammable liquids and Blue is for either acids or corrosives. Green is for pesticides while Red is for either paints or inks. Screened flame arrester vents on both sides of the cabinet (one high and one low) are threaded to accept a standard 2 inch pipe for external exhaust. All of Lyon’s safety cabinets meet NFPA Code 30 as well as OSHA Standards.
While most of our safety storage cabinets feature a manual-closing door, some do include self-closing door. The self-closing door features a manual latch with a fusible link. The latch holds the door open when the cabinet is in use. If temperatures reach or more 165° F then the latch will automatically release to close the door. The most commonly used Lyon Flammable Safety Cabinets offer the largest variety of sizes and gallon capacities.
Lyon’s ergonomic Workstation Seating can be found in most industrial, institutional, as well as commercial areas. Our heavy-duty industrial chairs feature polyurethane seats and backs. This material easily wipes clean in harsh environments. The padded seats and backs provide both comfort and durability. Both the Standard Industrial Chair and the Spider stool feature a five leg base. The five leg tubular steel bases offer increased strength and stability. The seat should be high enough so your arms form a 90° angle at the elbow or slightly greater. This allows better circulation in the shoulders as well as neck and reduces fatigue in the forearms and hands.
Not all work environments are suitable for a chair, but standing all day can cause unnecessary aches. Lyon’s Sit-Stand Stool is the perfect solution. This stool takes up to 70% of your weight to help reduce reduce leg and foot stress. The seat height is adjustable and has a 20 degree pivot range. These industrial works stools are ideal for use in a front office, reception area, or a service desk. Users can lean against this support device to relieve the pressure from being on their feet all day long. These heavy-duty industrial stools feature small wheels embedded in the base as well as a carry handle to create easy mobility. The non-marring anti-slip rubber pads on the base ensure stability while in use.
