Storing Dangerous Goods In Shipping Containers

Storing dangerous goods in shipping containers.

Dangerous goods shipping containers are built specifically to hold potentially hazardous items. These containers can securely hold thinners, paints, diesel, oils and other classified flammable items. It can also be used for storage of non-hazardous liquids as it can reduce the effects of spills and leaks.

What makes them so great for dangerous goods?

Firstly, ContainerCo offers either 10 ft or 20 ft shipping containers for sale that are fit for hazardous goods. These shipping containers come with bundled flooring with a spill capacity of 1250 litres. As a result, slippage is reduced and potentially hazardous liquids are prevented from spilling outside of the container.

The containers are made to be stable and hardwearing. Crafted largely from sheets of steel, these containers are ideal for transportation. They can be purchased for short or long term storage. The items kept inside are protected and kept safe from outside influences, while simultaneously protecting chemicals from escaping.

Modification is a beneficial tool to use as you can tailor your container to suit your needs. This could include a lockbox to increase security and prevent the tampering of padlocks. As an alternative, add a Whirley Gig or vents to increase aeration. This is especially important for items that produce fumes.
