We have a limited number of used 10ft chemical storage containers now available from our east London depot. These containers have been sourced from a container hire company and are available immediately in excellent condition with all modifications required for safe and secure chemical storage, including fitted air vents for effective ventilation, bunded flooring, and secure lockboxes fitted for added security.
These containers have been specifically modified for the storage of chemicals though we would strongly advise that you check on the regulations that are required for the specific types of chemicals you plan to store in them as these can vary depending on the exact materials you are storing, and the quantity you plan to store, and the size of container you store the good in. NB we are container experts not chemical experts, we can not advise what type of size of bund is suitable for you use. It will be your responsibility to ensure that what you specify or buy is suitable for your intended use.
The containers measure 10ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6 high, meaning they will fit well into smaller yards and areas where a larger 20ft or 40ft container might prevent a struggle. (we also have 1x 20ft chemical store in stock as well)
Each 10ft container has a steel, chequer plate bunded floor with an (approximately) 8-inch lip around all four sides. This style of bunded floor will help to trap any liquid leakages during storage and prevent them from escaping the container to contaminate the ground underneath and around it. It is worth noting that the bunded flooring option on this container lends itself more favourably to storing smaller containers or canisters than can be rolled or manually lifted inside. If a forklift was required for loading, you may encounter difficulties when negotiating the 8-inch lip around the sides of the flooring which also sits across the doorway. If you want to load good with a forklift a chemical store with a sunken bunded floor will be more appropriate. Please check the flat pack chemical store links below or contact us to discuss conversion options on this if needed.
These containers have also been fitted with additional air vents around the floor and roof so that any potential escaping of hazardous gases will be released and circulated outside of the container, thus preventing harm to anyone entering the container following such a leak.
There is also the addition of fitted lockboxes to the doors of all containers in this batch to provide additional security for the contents of the container.
As with all our containers, each of these are issued with a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee.
These units are ready to go in our east London depot.
