In addition, the doors must be fitted with an automatic closing device, for when the ambient temperature reaches 50 °C.

Likewise, the bottom vat must always be present, to collect accidental losses of liquids, not retained by tray-type shelves, and even, the capacity must be at least 10% of the volume of all containers contained in the cabinet, or at least 110% of the volume of the largest vessel.

Finally, the cabinets are supplied with a grounding, which must be connected to the setting of the electrical installation, to prevent electrostatic discharges.
