Bunded Chemical Stores

Bunded Chemical Stores

Our range of bunded chemical stores (chemical storage containers) are a fully secure storage solution for chemicals and hazardous substances such as oils, pesticides, paints, toxics, flammables, corrosives and much more. Suitable for both internal and external use, our bunded chemical stores, which are made from converted shipping containers into hazardous storage units, are a safe storage unit for all kinds of chemicals and other hazardous materials.

High security chemical storage units

Bunded Chemical Stores are converted from Standard ISO,  Shipping Containers to BASIS Standards, either using New (One Trip) or used containers available in 20ft or 40ft long and 8ft wide. Each store has a catchment area with a 300mm Bund at the entrance complete with a drainage tap, 4no. large louvre vents, a factory fitted lock-box and hazard warning labels.

We supply a high-security CISA padlock with each unit and also offer a wide range of optional extras including steel racking, electrics, personnel doors and many more.

Safe Storage for Chemicals

Cabins & Containers offers a number of different bunded storage facilities, ideal for the storage of chemicals at an industrial scale. Bunded storage containers can hold a number of standard drums. Using a bunded storage vessel as a drum store will ensure that if the tank or drum fails, the spillage will be contained within the container.

    What Is A Chemical Bund ?



    A bund is basically a large tray into which you sit your containers of chemicals, so that if they leak, the spilled chemicals is captured and retained in the bund. The bund should capture a leak which might otherwise go unnoticed.



    What Size/Capacity Does My Bund Need To Be ?



    Your bund should be 110% of the capacity of the largest chemical container you are storing i.e for a 1000 litre IBC tank your bund must be a minimum of 1100 litres. If you are storing multiple containers, your bund capacity must be either 110% of the capacity of the largest container you are storing, or 25% of the total combined volume of the containers you are storing – whichever is the largest figure. The bunds on our chemical stores exceed these bund capacity guidelines.



    Can I Have An Outlet On My Chemical Storage Bund ?



    No, It is not recommended that outlets be fitted to bunds as it increases the risk of accidental spillage through either outlets being left opened or becoming damaged.



    Should My Bund’s Be Tested ?



    Yes, all bunds should be tested on a regular basis to ensure that they will retain spilled chemicals. All our bund’s are tested during the manufacturing stage and bund test certificates are available.
