Type I Safety Can

Type I Safety Can

Virtually every place of business has occasion to use flammable or combustible liquids. Gasoline, chemicals, solvents and a variety of other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations. It is important to understand the dangers they present, and the special storage and handling procedures required to ensure safety usage.

Type I Safety Cans for Flammables are designed with a single spout for filling and pouring. The self-closing, leak-proof lid provides security from spills and leaks.

  • Full-fisted, rounded grip makes it comfortable to pour and carry heavy loads of 60 lbs. or more
  • Positive pressure relief cap automatically vents at between 3 and 5 psig to prevent rupture or explosion in the event of a fire
  • Spring-loaded, self-closing lid controls vapors and automatically closes after filling or pouring to guard against dangerous spillage. Leak-tight lid is fitted with a long-life gasket
  • 100% leak-tested, each container is tested under pressure to guarantee leak-proof construction and rigorous drop-testing from 3 ft. onto a concrete surface to further test the can’s integrity
  • 100% lead-free steel body and handle
  • Rugged 24-gauge premium coated steel construction is chemically resistant to handle gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene and a variety of other chemicals
  • Durable, high gloss, powder paint finish resists solvents, acids and alkalis and minimizes the effects of corrosions, humidity and fading
  • Reinforcing ribs strengthen the side walls for extra “bumper guard” protection in tough environments
  • Double lock seams at base and top offer four thicknesses of steel for extra protection against accidental bumps and bangs
  • Heavy steel spout is welded to dome for a high resistance to nicks or dents
  • Wide free-span opening on lid makes it easier to fill
  • 13 mm raised bottom resists accidental punctures when place on uneven surfaces and double as grip lip for support when pouring
  • Internal dual-density flame arrester within the fill/pour spout dissipates heat to prevent flashback ignition and guards against the potential for fire and bomb-like explosion
  • Double mesh construction protects against fire yet keeps liquids flowing freely for convenient filling and pouring
