Do fire safety, classified material, hazardous material and chemical storage lockers and cabinets fit best in 104000 series or 105000 series numbering? Specifically?

I've specified gun lockers in 105177 (my own number; not an "official" MF04 number).

I'd put fire-rated, hazmat and chemical storage cabinets in 123553 Laboratory Casework; these are standard products for lab casework manufacturers.

I've never specified a classified material locker. Assume it would be at least fire-rated. Also consider 111616 Safes.

Thanks, Dave. I too have thought about going "unofficial" and using 105200 as Material Storage Units. Close-by but apart from Storage Specialties

Since our units are not lab animals, I'd like to stay away from the 12 series, and yes the "classified" [popular misnomer] hazardous materials require fire-ratings [flammable liquids, etc.] so safes may be a stretch, too.

I created 105813 Laboratory Storage Cabinets for a project with flammable and corrosive storage cabinets. Though they weren't inside the lab, they were affiliated with the lab itself.
