FM Approved Storage Cabinets

FM Approved Storage Cabinets

The First Cabinet to Meet the Standard

Third party approvals for Hazardous Material Buildings have been around since 1991 in the form of FM class 6049. FM began approving hazardous material storage buildings with the first edition of CLASS 6049 in that year. Manufacturers that receive FM approval have submitted their designs to a third party and then to FM for review in accordance with the standard. This includes reviewing the structural integrity including floor and snow loads in accordance with the standards and the ability of the building to withstand a specific wind which is especially important in coastal areas of the US. The standard further evaluates the integrity of fire rated walls and ceiling and certifies the stated containment sump capacity.

A FM approved building should be labeled as such by the manufacturer. The text of the approval document describes what must be on the label. This includes place of manufacture, model no., design floor, wind and snow loads, and if applicable, the fire rating of the walls. It also includes whether the building is constructed with damage limiting construction (DLC) also known as deflagration panels, and the electrical classification and temperature classification of any and all electrical equipment installed on the building.
