We are a research lab and usually the restrictions apply to flammables outside the cabinet.  I believe they don't want more than 100-150ml of any one flammable.  I don't think there is a restriction to what's stored inside one--probably depends upon the size of the cabinet.

Subject: [Histonet] Flammable cabinets

Can anybody explain how much alcohol or other flammables we can store in a flammable cabinet in a room?  I have read the CAP guidelines and am still confused.  Do the CAP guidelines  only have to do with stored reagents outside of a flammable cabinet?
What am I missing?
