Safe Storage of Raw Materials For Cosmetics Manufacturer
The Yves Rocher Group is an international group of companies that have been manufacturing and marketing cosmetics and body care products since 1959. For their laboratory in Paris, Yves Rocher uses 2 Vertical Lift Module Kardex Shuttle 250s to store raw materials for production. The system has access points across multiple-floors and is compliant with fire protection regulations.
At their Paris laboratory, specialists continuously develop new and innovative product formulas using
plant-based active ingredients. Yves Rocher must follow country-specific insurance guidelines when
storing their raw materials. The Kardex Shuttle 250 has an integrated fire protection system to ensure bins, bottles, boxes, and canisters safely store all raw materials. Additionally, the unit is fitted with with multiple access points that follow fire regulations, and protect their raw materials and storage unit from fire damage.
If a fire occurs, nitrogen releases inside the storage unit via vertically lined nozzle jets, decreasing the oxygen concentration and extinguishing the fire. To prevent a fire from reigniting, a “hold flooding” occurs, flooding the unit and keeping the oxygen concentration low for a minimum of ten minutes.
An early warning system continuously takes air samples from the storage unit. It tests air particles and if the concentration is too high, a visual and acoustic alarm sets off and nitrogen floods the unit.
