Safe storage for hazardous products

The company has always sold chemical-based building products, including flammable, corrosive and toxic items, but products were previously delivered direct to trading branches from the manufacturer.

Dynamic Systems, in conjunction with Brackmills’ operations manager, Roy Spencer, developed a storage solution to house the products, comprising a number of bunkers and a purpose-built mesh cage.

Flammable products are segregated in the cage, a 60m run of racking enclosed in mesh, which sits alongside 30 fire-resistant, bunded bunkers to house hazardous products.

Each bunker is individually isolated so toxic and corrosive products can be kept separate from each other.

If the fire alarm sounds, doors on both the cage and each individual bunker close automatically to assist with fire containment.
