Walk In Fire Rated Stores Stores
The FireVault storage module provides the highest level of safety instantly for the secure storage of all flammable materials. All areas of industry currently employ flammables in their processes from petroleum products to industrial chemicals.
Manufactured to the highest standards utilising only those fireproofing materials, which have been tested to BS 476, part 22, FireVault Stores comply with all relevant Health & Safety Regulations, Insurance requirements and environmental standards such as IS310, ISO 14001, EMAS and IPC licensing.
Standard features include, full width spillage collection sumps, up to 5 hour fire rated composite wall panels, insulated self-closing doors, intumescent ventilation panels, fixed shelving, anti-static grounding connections, fully welded, leak tested bunds, galvanized grid mesh floors. A range of optional extras are also available for the Firevault units including ex-rated electrical fittings.
All Firevault units are delivered to site fully assembled and ready for immediate use. No special site works are required and at any future time, they can easily be relocated by forklift truck or crane, thereby offering excellent flexibility.
The most common Firevaults are the Walk In Stores used for small container storage (25L cans, Winchesters etc) and feature:

“After consulting with various suppliers, Chemstore was the only company who could provide us with the required solution” Mat Mitchell Technology Supplies Ltd. –
Fire Rated Stores for: Drums, IBC’s & pallets of flammable materials.
FireVault units are fully modular and can be easily relocated by forkturck or Hi-AB Crane
All Firevault units are delivered to site fully assembled and ready for immediate use with no site work required.

With over 24 years experience in the design manufacture and implementation of safety storage systems for hazardous materials, We know from speaking to our clients that the most prevalent risk has always been in the storage of flammables. What also must be considered is the protection of valuable equipment. The Firevault can employed as a Fire rated critical equipment enclosure. Whether it be the HSE, EPA or even company insurers carrying out assessments on your site it will always be the risk of fire that is given the highest priority. The Firevault enables you to obtain the highest level of safety and protection when storing flammable materials or protecting your most valuable assets on on site.
Organic Peroxide Storage – Stainless Steel
Typically, chemical stores would be fabricated from mild steel which is then over-painted with a 2-part or 3-part industrial paint system. Standard units would also have exposed galvanized grid decking onto which the pallets would rest – these are unpainted and therefore expose the mild steel to the chemicals stored – in this case Organic Peroxide. Read on for our solution to your organic peroxide storage needs.
When designing an organic peroxide store a Grade 316 stainless steel finish is required, in all locations that could come into contact with the Peroxide. This includes the storage areas, the spillage retention bunds and the fire water retention tank.
The relevant HSE Guidance reference is called: –
CS21 – The Storage and Handling of Organic Peroxides. – Download it here
This is written, specifically to cover the
“… handling and storage of organic peroxides at customer or user sites.”
It clearly details the hazards associated with exposing such chemicals to mild/carbon steel: –
“… commercially available organic peroxides are capable of self heating and runaway decomposition. Initiation is by heating or contamination with, for example, transition metal compounds (particularly those of vanadium, chromium, manganese, iron and cobalt) amines, strong acids and alkalis.”
Furthermore, para 28, when discussing the handling of organic peroxides, states that: –
“… All containers and equipment which come into contact with peroxides must be compatible. Suitable materials include glass, porcelain, polyethylene and 316 grade stainless steel.”
A very common problem our clients have is maintaining valuable liquids and and process chemicals within the correct temperature range for optimum safety and performance. Temperature Controlled Stores are the solution.
Valuable time is lost in waiting for chemicals to heated to performance temperatures and also product is fouled by exposure to incorrect temperatures.
Chemstore’s temperature controlled stores are stand-alone relocatable, insulated stores which are designed to provide secure, controlled storage for temperature sensitive materials. We offer a full range of sizes together with heating and cooling options. Depending on the hazardous material being stored by harnessing the SDS sheet Chemstore can provide the required storage temperature to alleviate any hazard presented by storing materials on site.
We also offer drum & IBC’s Enclosures designed to heat the contents of standard drums and IBC’s from freezing or ambient to your required processing temperature.
Chemstore’s Thermovault – Temperature Controlled Stores are stand-alone and relocateable.
Thermovault is available as an insulated design option or a Fire Rated option, which are designed to provide secure, controlled storage for temperature sensitive materials. We offer a full range of sizes together with a bespoke design service to suit your requirements with heating and cooling options.
We also offer Drum & IBC’s Enclosures designed to heat the contents of standard drums and IBC’s from freezing, ambient or even hotter to your required processing temperature.
