By meeting OSHA, EPA, NFPA, and FM requirements for the storage of hazardous chemicals, our chemical storage buildings are able to be used in numerous manufacturing processes and applications. The steel and welding modifications are also in accordance with the American Welding Society (AWS) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. These certifications provide our customers with peace-of-mind because they can trust that they are receiving a high quality product that meets their needs. 

By offering portable hazmat chemical storage buildings to our customers, they are able to quickly set up their product wherever they need it in order to accommodate frequent site changes and provide convenient, close-to-production supply chain efficiencies. And thanks to the floor being modified to include a secondary containment pan with a grated walking surface, they are also able to protect their jobsite from spills that could potentially escape and contaminate the environment.
