From lithium batteries that power drones and UAVs, to fuel and oil for equipment servicing, the military uses many chemicals in its day-to-day operations. Maintaining mission readiness requires a logistics and storage system that works like clockwork. Poor chemical storage facilities could compromise fleet readiness and fire safety. U.S. Chemical Storage understands the high stakes associated with your .military chemical storage needs. We engineer both fire-rated and non fire-rated chemical storage buildings to protect against injuries or the loss of mission critical equipment.
Proper Military Chemical Storage and Mission Readiness
New equipment options come with new hazards that require unique safety practices. Military bases cannot afford injuries and the loss of mission critical equipment.
Recently, a lithium battery explosion at a military base destroyed $70,000 of stock. Smoke from residue while charging a lithium battery set off a water sprinkler system. Unfortunately, water and lithium are not compatible. The batteries exploded.
Never compromise convenience for personnel or operation safety, especially when the mission must not fail. Using intermodal shipping containers (aka ISO containers or Conex boxes) for storage does not qualify as compliant storage solutions. When storing chemicals, the military requires EPA and NFPA compliance. Shipping containers do not meet these requirements because they are designed primarily for shipping or transport.
Prefabricated Chemical Storage Buildings vs. On-Site Construction
Prefabricated chemical storage buildings are an affordable alternative to traditional construction. There’s no need to wait 6 to 18 months for an expensive design-build construction project. U.S. Chemical Storage can provide a code-compliant prefabricated building, customized to your specific requirements, within 3 months; and onsite installation can be completed in 1 week or less. All buildings can easily be relocated and are transportable as needed.
Options like modular and drop-over buildings ensure no job is too large or too small. All chemical storage buildings for the military are FM Approved and come with 15-year structural warranty.
All buildings are proudly made in the USA of U.S. and imported parts.

Explosive Storage Magazines for Military & Government Use
To maintain mission preparedness, the military uses ammunitions and explosives in training. Law enforcement must use live detonators and bombs when training their K9 officers. Because of the inherent danger, in the United States, the federal government requires storage magazines for all high and low explosives and blasting agents. DynaLoc explosive storage magazines from U.S. Chemical Storage provide safe storage solutions for high and low explosives. All prefabricated magazines meet and exceed ATF and DOD requirements.
