Overall Dimensions:

9000L x 3000W x 3250H – mm


24x1000L IBC’s, on 2 levels with a ‘live racking mechanism’ throughout. Allows forktruck access to all pallets from the front of the store.
(To suit positioning preference on site) 1000 x 1200 pallets or IBC’s on the 1200mm side must be used. Loading mechanism is suitable for simultaneous CP3 pallet and IBC storage.


2 no. 3kW ATEX rated Static Heaters fitted with adjustable thermostat to ensure temperature can be maintained (3 no. heaters required for 24 IBC Store)


The 100mm thick Fire-rated panels are fabricated from high quality resin bonded Conrock slab and are securely fixed using the tongue and groove method, for added stability, to the robust welded steel box framework.
When tested in accordance with BS 476 part 22 1987 the panels exhibit the following results:
Resistance to the passage of flames 98 mins. Insulation on temperature 98 mins. Stability >98 mins
There is, therefore fire resistance to the wall construction of 98 mins.

Roof Cladding:

In accordance with Health
& Safety Guidance Notes HS(G)51, which states that: –
“External storage buildings, whether or not they are fire-resisting structures,
should have a light-weight roof to act as explosion relief.”
  The profiled, double skin, fire rated, roof cladding is therefore designed to be of a notably lighter construction than that of the wall & door panels


Corrosion resistant steel sump tray fitted under lower shelf level. Capacity: 5100L (exceeds current Environmental guidelines, 25% of the total volume).
Bund Test Certificates are issued with each unit.


Robust all welded 100x50mm steel box section frame.


5 hinged access doors create good seal within heavy frame in order to better retain heat energy and reduce running costs. Doors are fully padlockable with push fit door catch mechanism to prevent doors from swinging.


6 no. intumescent ventilation Pyrogrilles fitted as standard at high and low level to ensure good ventillation throughout the store. When tested to BS 476 part 22 the panels exhibit a 1 hour Fire-Rating.


All steel coated with 2 pack anti corrosive polyurethane paint system designed to resist chemical attack.


Unit is fitted with forklift channels or certified roof mounted crane lugs to allow for easy unloading and relocation if required.


Relevant safety signs fitted as standard on all units.
