EN 14470-2:2006 (E) 3 Foreword This document (EN 14470-2:2006) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 332 “Laboratory equipment”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by February 2007, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by February 2007. EN 14470, Fire safety storage cabinets, consists of the following parts:  Part 1: Safety storage cabinets for flammable liquids  Part 2: Safety cabinets for pressurised gas cylinders According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.



EN 14470-2:2006 (E) 4 Introduction This European standard describes the design and test criteria for safety cabinets used by laboratories to store pressurised gas cylinders at normal room temperature. The cabinet is designed and constructed to ensure that in the event of fire, the contents of the cabinet do not contribute any additional risks or spread the fire for at least 15 minutes. The cabinet is also designed and constructed to ventilate minor gas leakage within the cabinet. Testing the cabinet under fire conditions is a normative part of this standard and the procedures and interpretation of the tests are described in detail. The fire rating allows time for personnel to leave and fire fighters to enter the area before the pressurised gas cylinders become unstable.



EN 14470-2:2006 (E) 5 1 Scope This European standard is a product specification, giving performance requirements for fire safety cabinets used for storing pressurised gas cylinders. It is applicable to cabinets with a total internal volume suitable to store pressurised gas cylinders with a total volume not exceeding 220 l, including cylinders of purging gases. NOTE 1 This means that up to four gas cylinders of 50 l or up to three gas cylinders of 70 l can be stored in a single cabinet. NOTE 2 It is intended that the pressurised gas cylinders can be in use while in the cabinet. NOTE 3 Attention is drawn to national regulations which can apply with regard to the storage and use of pressurised gas cylinders. NOTE 4 The safety cabinet can be free standing, restrained to a wall or mounted on wheels or castors.
This standard is not applicable to brick enclosures, walk-in storage rooms or cabinets which do not take their weight on their base. Requirements are given in respect to the construction of the cabinet and its capacity to resist fire conditions on the outside. A type test is included, which is based on the already existing fire resistance (heating curve) tests given in EN 14470-1. The tests described in this European Standard are type tests (for the storage of flammable liquids EN 14470-1 is applicable – the criteria for failure are different – see Annex A).

In a ventilated cabinet in which ventilation is taking place, with the doors closed, latched and locked, the following extraction rates shall apply:  when using flammable and fire supporting gas, at least 10 air changes of the cabinet's volume per hour;  when using toxic gas, at least 120 air changes of the cabinet's volume per hour. Under the above conditions the pressure drop shall not exceed 150 Pa. The ventilation system shall maintain a lower pressure in the cabinet than in the surrounding atmosphere. Ventilation shall take place on the top and bottom of the cabinet. Design of the air circulation system within the cabinet shall ensure adequate purging from minor leakage.
This shall be tested by visual inspection and by measuring the air flow and pressure drop while the cabinet is empty. NOTE The inlet pressure drop and the number of air changes have been chosen to provide purging efficiency.
5.2.2 In the event of a fire, the inlet and exhaust vents shall close automatically. The vents' closing system shall be tested as part of the fire-resistance test in Annex A.
