A Better Way
At U.S. Chemical Storage, we understand the need for keeping your turf and agrichemicals close at hand. By utilizing our specialized agricultural chemical storage buildings your team can maintain efficiency. DrumLoc™ and TurfLoc™ buildings are suitable for the storage of:
Both liquid and granular fertilizers are popular to maintain turf in a good condition. Protect your valuable fertilizer by storing it in and agricultural chemical storage building with cool, dry conditions, away from other chemicals such as pesticides. Fertilizer chemicals pose a high risk to ground or surface water in case of a leak or spill. U.S. Chemical Storage provides EPA-compliant options for your fertilizer storage by utilizing our leak-proof sumps with optional sump liner.
Granular fertilizer is often supplied in 50 lb. bags and commonly used on golf courses in late autumn to strengthen the grass for winter, or during growing season prior to harvest on farms. Granular fertilizers are typically stored in large quantities.
Liquid fertilizers contain a combination of nutrient solutions that can separate into layers if stored for long periods of time. Mixing should occur in a well ventilated and controlled space like our TurfLoc™ or DrumLoc™ storage buildings with liquid-tight containment sumps to keep any spills within our 100% steel-welded and leak tested sump.
Herbicides are important products for landscaping and horticulture. Most herbicides are extremely toxic and must be stored with care. Depending on the type of herbicides and the average temperature variances, heated or air-conditioned herbicide storage buildings may be necessary when storing bulk amounts of herbicides onsite.
Protect herbicides by storing away from work areas in a compliant chemical storage building, elevating chemicals with a spill control pallet, accumulation center or shelving, and keeping it locked when not in use. Our built in spill containment satisfies the need to elevate chemical containers above ground level in the case of a spill.
Proper herbicide storage will increase the life of the chemicals and prevent any hazardous leaks or spills. All U.S. Chemical Storage buildings for herbicides include leak-tested secondary containment sumps that meet EPA regulations.

1. Do I need a fire-rated building?
There are two types of buildings to consider: fire-rated and non-fire rated steel buildings. First identify the materials to be stored and then group them by hazard. There are three steps to consider when deciding between a fire-rated and non-fire rated building. You must first determine what is to be stored and the quantity. Then you must decide where in relation to other buildings and property lines is the desired storage is to take place, and finally schedule a consult with the local authority having jurisdiction or local code expert to determine the storage building requirements. Our team at U.S. Chemical Storage has resources to help analyze your storage needs and building requirements but the final approval is made by the local authority having jurisdiction.

3. How should my chemical storage building be designed?
How will the building be used? Will it be a permanent structure or a temporary storage location? Will there be frequent movement of materials in and out of the building? Will chemicals be handled inside of the building? Answers to these questions will dictate fire rating as well as the need for mechanical ventilation or explosion relief panels.
