There are a number of construction requirements that are essential for class 5.1 storage cabinets to comply with the requirements of AS 4326:2008. These construction requirements include:
- Vent ports to allow the cabinet to be mechanically vented to the outside atmosphere.
- Perforated shelves to permit free air movement within the cabinet.
- A lower compound within the cabinet that is liquid tight, 150mm deep and has the capacity to contain at least 25% of the total storage capacity of the cabinet.
- Door catches and hinges that are not constructed from plastics or zinc die castings.
- Provided with doors that are self-closing, close-fitting and held shut by catches that release in the event of a build up of pressure within the cabinet.
