Hazardous chemicals can pose a significant risk to the health and safety of you and your colleagues if not stored correctly. Keep reading to find out how we can help!

A rural store is a common place where many types of chemicals and dangerous substances are found. Often store owners may be confused or ill-informed when it comes to effectively storing these goods. Storeplan has successfully assisted managers of various rural stores to find an effective solution to chemical storage in their warehouses.

Common chemicals that need to be stored securely include:

  • Insecticides
  • Miticides
  • Glyphosates (Round up)
  • Rodenticides

Clients such as rural stores require a system that is easily accessible, secure and lockable for the storage of dangerous/hazardous chemicals.

The solution is to provide compliant bulk chemical storage came in the form of a ‘walk-in’ safety cage.

  • Customised steel framed mesh panels close in the sides, rear, top and front of the Longspan Shelving System.
  • Access is by means of an 1800mm wide sliding gate which is padlocked once closed.
  • Allows for a pallet of chemicals to be placed inside the cage and then unloaded onto the shelves.
  • The entire system is bunded to ensure no leaks or spills can contaminate other areas of the warehouse.

Don’t have enough room for a walk-in unit? Ask us to simply cage your shelving or racking! (see image examples)
