We have a limited number of used 20ft chemical storage containers 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. These regulations can vary depending on the exact materials you are storing, the quantity you plan to store, and the size of the container you will store the goods in. Please understand that we are container experts, not chemical experts and we can not advise what type of size of bund is suitable for your use. It will be your responsibility to ensure that what you specify or buy is suitable for your intended use of the container.
The containers measure 20ft long x 8ft wide x 8ft 6 high, making them an excellent choice for slightly larger collections of chemicals. We do also have a limited selection of smaller 10ft bunded chemical containers available if you require something smaller.
Each 20ft 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 and contaminating the ground underneath and around the container. 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 need to use a forklift to load your chemicals into storage, you may prefer to opt for a container with a sunken bunded floor. We have included some links to our flat-pack chemical storage options below. Alternatively, you can contact us to discuss conversion options on bunded floorings if needed.
Additional air vents are positioned around the floor and roof of these containers to ensure 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 a fitted lockbox to the door to provide additional security.
This container includes the added assurance of a 12-month wind and watertight guarantee.
This unit is ready to go at our east London depot.
