DENIOS hazardous material depots are designed for storing smaller containers and low quantities of drums, offering efficient protection and safety in a small space and are ideal for installation outdoors.
Environmental laws and industry regulations require businesses and workshops that store fuels and other hazardous chemicals in liquid form onsite to use bunded storage solutions. To understand the importance of using bunded storage cabinets, it is essential to have knowledge of the utility of these drum bunds.
Bunded drum storage solutions use a bund liner that tends to act as a spill reservoir. This liner ensures the safe storage of potentially hazardous liquid chemicals. Without storage solutions such as these, there is always a risk of chemical leakage that can contaminate the soil as well as the groundwater. This results in dire consequences for business operations, particularly in the case of a farming enterprise that stores chemical pesticides onsite.
The Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG), issued by the Environment Agency of England and Wales, recommends the usage of drum storage for hazardous materials as a good practice. As per the PPG guidelines, if you are causing pollution or allowing it to occur, then this is a criminal offence. The use of bunded storage solutions can protect you and your workshop from any litigation issues relating to environmental damage.
The drum storage solutions offered by DENIOS UK all meet the necessary recommendation issued by PPG, which ensures that using our storage solutions can prevent the risk of legal charges.
DENIOS UK bunded storage solutions for drums and other small containers are ideal for the outdoors as well as inside your workshop premises. There is a wide range of storage drums and bunded stores available to meet different space requirements. Based on the chemical that you intend to store as well as the area where you would like to install the storage solution, you can choose from the products that we have available.
This highly depends on the type of potentially hazardous material that you need to store. Typically, the material of the bund drum storage solutions should be resistant to the material stored in the drum bunds. To make it easy for you to choose the right drum bund material, you can follow this rule of thumb – for all materials and liquids that are flammable or may contaminate water or soil, it is best to use steel bunded storage. Examples of such materials are oils, paints and varnishes. DENIOS UK offers drum storage solutions such as the Galvanized Hazardous Material Station 4 and the Drum Storage Unit P2-R, both of which work in such cases based on the chemical or liquid that you intend to store.
For aggressive chemicals such as acids and alkali substances, polyethylene (PE) bunded drum storage solutions are ideal. As PE is a non-corrosive substance, products such as the PolySafe-Depot Typ C 4 Drums are a great solution for storage of these chemicals.
Having the right bunded drum storage solutions will not only prevent contamination of the potentially hazardous materials that you are storing onsite but will also safeguard your workshop and premises from any risks due to the accidental spilling of these substances.
