Companies dealing with chemicals and hazardous materials must ensure products are stored safely. Proper containment is key.
Fibreglass is an ideal match for the storage of hazardous materials because it’s resistant to chemicals — it won’t rot, rust or corrode in the presence of even the most corrosive chemicals.
Mississauga, Ont.-based Excess Space Solutions (ESS) offers prefabricated fibreglass structures in a wide range of sizes and designs to suit your specific needs. Its design features an innovative containment floor that provides a continuous fibreglass material from floor to ceiling. A fibreglass pan holds spilled liquid. It’s mounted to the modular building and then sealed for seamless flow from floor to ceiling.
Spill containment buildings may require a grated floor placed on top of the fibreglass pan that allows spillage to flow under and remain below the walking space in the enclosure. The company can provide steel or fibreglass grating for this.
ESS factory assembles spill containment buildings, making them ready to use upon delivery. If the desired location of the spill containment unit changes, the building can be easily relocated by forklift or tilt-n-load truck.
In addition to standard sizes, the company also offers custom designs — from concept to final product. Panel style and specific requests (including doors, windows, electrical, insulation, containment floor and vents) are customizable to suit exact requirements.
“Our modular design allows your building to grow as your needs grow,” the company says.
You can install ESS buildings on your own, or use the company’s assembly team.
