Customer Issue:

London Underground based in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire approached Chemstore to supply storage for 4 No. sites.

The units would be required to store track maintenance equipment and chemicals on site. The units would be needed at the Rickmansworth, Neasden, Edgware Road and Ruislip London Underground depots.

London Underground needed a storage solution which would enable compliance with HSE & Government legislation for the storage of flammable liquids and Hazardous Chemicals.


Kevin Mitchell, our UK design engineer, helped to develop a design that enabled the client to successfully store highly flammable liquid drums within a Zone I atmosphere. This was achieved by incorporating the following: –

(All electrical items are fully ATEX rated for use within a Zone I flammable atmosphere.)
– Light fittings and switches
– Anti-static management systems
– Forced ventilation units.
– Heaters
– LED Energy saving flood lights
– Fire detection

The Firevault store was manufactured with a fully certified secondary containment bund and certified 90 minute fire rated cladding throughout.

The stores fit for purpose design has ensured the client is now storing its hazardous chemicals in a fully compliant fire rated enclosure. The Firevault design has enabled the customer to reduce risk, liability and downtime in its process.
