Portable chemical storage buildings have great advantages over permanent installations. They can be relocated if desired. In most cases, they do not require building permits to install. Because they are prefabricated, they are less expensive than building from the ground up.
Space-saver Modular Designs
Provide twice the space of traditional free-standing buildings. They allow double stacking of larger containers (such as 55-gallon drums) or storing of smaller containers on seismic secondary containment shelving.
Our standard lockers with the 5'6"depth and the 56" x 86" LxH pallet wide doors (1 door every 5') are designed for forklift loading and are F.M. approved for double stacking of 55 gallon drums.
Generation Development of the Modular Design
First came the overseas containers (ISO, Cargo Sea Trains, etc.). Their designs required hand movement of drums.
Then came hazardous materials storage buildings based on the same designs but with two or three doors added. However, they required the same hand movement of drums.
