Failure to store chemicals according to regulatory standards could also result in fines.
All U.S. Chemical Storage buildings meet EPA spill containment regulations and can be customized to meet NFPA requirements* and are your solution for safe chemical storage and compliance. Our TurfLoc™ buildings promote proper storage, handling, and disposal practices, enhance safety, and minimize contamination.
*Always consult your local authority with jurisdiction to ensure that all rules and regulations are followed, including proper setback requirements.
At U.S. Chemical Storage we strive to give you the best solution for your operations. This building and its accompanying accessories can be engineered to meet the following approvals and certifications based upon your unique set of needs.
Other Types of Non Fire-Rated Chemical Storage Buildings
ChemLoc™ Chemical Storage Buildings
For unparalleled protection, use non fire-rated hazardous chemical storage buildings for storing flammable or combustible chemicals at least 30 feet from other buildings. These chemical storage units have countless applications and accessories that can be custom engineered to fit your specific needs.
DrumLoc™ is a safe and secure non fire-rated storage building and provides ideal protection for large quantities of hazardous chemicals. Each chemical drum storage building can be outfitted to hold from two to 56 drums and will accept a variety of accessories to make operations flow safely and smoothly.
Location of the building can be either inside another building or outside to fit your needs. Fire Separation, which is the amount of fire rating required between two occupancies, or the separation distance between those two occupancies, is determined by the occupancy ratings, construction types, and distances between both buildings. To determine the required fire separation, it is best to consult with your local code authority. If your hazmat storage building is located at distances greater than 30 feet you may not be required to have a fire-rated building.
2. 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. Speak to one of our experienced Sales Engineers to learn more about safety accessories for your application.
3. What is a sump or secondary containment in reference to chemical storage buildings?
The definition of a “sump” is a pit or reservoir providing containment for spilled liquids. U.S. Chemical Storage offers leak proof spill containment sumps in each standard model. This sump is then covered by a steel or fiberglass floor grating and is can be equipped with a “sump liner” of a plastic nature to provide resistance to accidental spills.
