Crescent Jobox® Safety Cabinets Set New Standards for Flammable Material Storage

With UL Certification, Crescent JOBOX® Flammable Storage Cabinets provide next-level safety with industry-leading heat resistance

SPARKS, Md., Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Storing flammable or combustible materials is entirely about safety, and in the worst-case scenarios, it's critical to have the best protection available. The new Crescent JOBOX® Flammable Storage Cabinets—developed by Apex Tool Group—are UL certified after not just passing heat tests but surpassing the standards for certification.

In burn tests with exterior temperatures between 1,250 and 1,500 degrees, any cabinet looking for certification has to hold an internal temperature of under 325 degrees for 10 minutes. The new Crescent JOBOX cabinet maxed out at only 250 degrees. What this means is that, in the event of a disaster or potential disaster where flammable materials are vulnerable to explosion, the Crescent JOBOX Flammable Storage Cabinets stay cooler longer to allow people to address and extinguish a potential threat or evacuate as needed.

"Protecting people, products and property was the guiding force behind us as we developed these new safety cabinets," said product manager Sam Samsel. "We looked at the various ways that safety cabinets can fail and developed innovative solutions to those issues. The result is a flammable storage cabinet that's unmatched."

  • EZ Level™ bolster makes leveling simple and safe
  • Hi-Viz Safety Information Labels provide a reminder and reference for users to follow proper safety and usage practices
  • Anti-tip feature on the EZ-Level™ bolster extends the base foot print beyond the width of the cabinet for improved stability

The cabinets will be available in December 2018 in five sizes and three colors for the specific contents. For more information, go to www.jobox.com.
