Hazardous chemical storage containers are new one trip shipping containers and typically available in the UK from our Felixstowe depot.
The floor is specifically designed to catch and hold any hazardous chemicals that could potentially spill or leak, preventing the chemicals from escaping into the groundwater. Also designed with floor and roof level vents which will allow any escaping gas to vent out of the container, preventing build up of hazardous or flammable gasses in the event of a leak or gas escape.
Regulations covering the specs required for your chemical store will vary depending on the exact chemicals you are storing and the quantity – However these units will more than fit the vast majority of customer requirements.
These 20ft hazardous chemical shipping containers have a payload not too dissimilar from a ‘regular’ shipping container, circa 20 tonnes and a whopping bunded capacity of 2250 litres.
As with all one trip containers, these have all done one trip over from China and may have 1 or 2 small imperfections consistent with this initial trip, but all containers are checked on arrival so you are assured of a structurally sound unit that will be sold in a seaworthy condition, and all our containers come with our 12-month warranty against natural water or weather egress. These new one trip seaworthy containers also come with a circa 5-year CSC plate so they are also ideal for exporting goods. More information on what to expect from a shipping container is available from our news article ‘What can you expect from a one trip shipping container.’
With the heavy duty container doors comes a high security lock box, and by adding one of our Masterlock shipping container padlocks at £35 + VAT each (with 4 keys) or if you wanted the industry standard CISA shipping container padlocks are a snip more at £45.00 + VAT each (with 3 keys), they can also become one of the most secure chemical stores available.
Depending on your requirements we may be able to offer alternative specs and suggestions including used, refurbished or other made to order options.
Flat pack storage containers and chemical stores are also available from Budget Shipping Containers. Although not as strong as these shipping containers they are beneficial if you;re trying to get a container into a tight area where, ordinarily, a hiab delivery vehicle couldn’t get too to offload a shipping container! again please contact us for more information.
