The be all and ENd all

The Importance of EN

EN 14470-1 is The European Standard policy applied to facilities storing flammable and hazardous liquids. It was implemented in April 2004 and is a national standard in many European countries.

The legal requirement addresses the duty to correctly and safely store all flammable liquids in cabinets with a capacity to resist fire conditions on the outside, safeguarding the content inside. A minimum of 30 minutes fire protection must accommodate cabinets that store flammable liquids.

It should be adhered to by all institutions that manufacture, store, process or use dangerous substances which may result in explosive atmospheres.

The European Standard does not distinguish between different flammable liquids. The onus is on the user to understand the dangers of individual substances which hold considerably different properties and conclusions.

Non-compliance of this standard may result in;

  • Death
  • Financial Loss
  • Legal Implications
  • Productivity Loss
  • Damaged Reputation

Can you or your organisation take this risk?

At TBI Scientific in association with asecos we go beyond minimum! Our German manufactured cabinets are the first in the world to hold a 90-minute fire resistance standard. Independently tested and certified allows our products to meet and surpass European Standard requirements. We also supply a 10-year manufacturer warranty, guaranteeing personal and professional safety at all times.


Contact us today for a free safety inspection with our qualified staff of your premises and we will be more than happy to give our recommendations concerning the safe and approved storage of hazardous materials.

We believe standards should always be maximum.

The below video highlights the time difference between models of no protection, 30 minutes protection and the asecos 90 minute protection.

Neon – New generation workplace chairs

Neon from bimos is the flagship for modern industry. This work place chair is a favourite of TBI Scientific as no other chair used in manufacturing can boast such ergonomic features, design or such comfort.

Neon is the new generation workplace chair for the new generation of work. Office and Manufacturing workplaces are merging closer and closer together, and demands on the workplace are increasing with simple production jobs being increasingly replaced by more complicated tasks.

Its innovative 1+1 system of chair and upholstery combination provides flexibility and sustainability, and ensures that it is perfectly adapted to the particular area of work.

Labster – “The world’s first real Laboratory Chair”

Here at TBI Scientific we are proud to say we are home to bimos‘ extraordinary Lab Chair – Labster.

Labster is the world’s first real laboratory chair. Unlike the usual laboratory adaptations of office or workshop chairs, Labster has been specially designed for the requirements of a laboratory.

Labster has no sharp edges, thanks to its unique, seamless design concept, where even the mechanism is hidden under the soft, washable cover. All the surfaces can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly. With its creative design and smooth finish, there are no corners, nooks or crannies for microorganisms to hold or build up.

Labster is setting new standards in terms ergonomics – the newly developed auto motion technology ensures that the angle between the back and the thighs is always correct, no matter what type of work is being performed. It is even suitable for use in clean room conditions.
