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. and rom 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).
“If you cause pollution you will be responsible for the cost of the clean up. This can be expensive particularly if the groundwater has become contaminated”
” Make sure fuel, oil and chemical storage on site is secure. Site the storage on an impervious base within a secondary system such as a bund. The base and bund walls should be impermeable to the material stored and able to contain 110% of the volume stored”
Chemstore’s small hazvault chemical stores are suitable for the storage of upto four 205 litre drums. Small drum storage cabinets can be modified to allow storage of 25L drums by including a removable middle shelf. If access is required to the top of the 200L drums (for example when pouring waste into drums), a hinging top lid can be included.

Gasvault – Solutions for Compressed Gases – Gas Cylinder Stores
Chemstore’s range of solutions for Gas Cylinder Storage
The range Gas Cylinder Stores are specifically designed to provide a safe, ergonomic range of compliant storage solutions for gas cylinders.
Over two billion Lithium-ion cells are produced every year, but significant safety concerns surround battery storage, quarantine procedures, transport/ disposal of damaged batteries and thermal runaway. During a thermal runaway, the high heat created by the failing cell can develop to the next cell, causing it also to become thermally unstable. A battery pack can be destroyed within minutes or last for hours as each cell runs away. An irreversible thermal event in a lithium-ion battery can be initiated in several ways, by spontaneous internal or external short-circuit, overcharging, external heating or fire or even mechanical abuse. Electrovault provides an ideal battery storage solution.
A thermal runaway releases hydrogen fluoride HF, phosphorus pentafluoride (PF5) and phosphoryl fluoride (POF3), studies have shown that using water as a fire suppressant may also increase the formation of HF.
Our Electrovault storage units are made to comply with RC61 guidelines. We can tailor your Electrovault battery storage solution to suit your specification, whether that is:

Lithium Batteries should be treated as a Hazardous Material
In Active Storage, lithium-ion batteries or battery packs are charged in a cabinet.
When charging lithium-ion batteries heat can be generated, if this heat output is too high, a fire may occur, for example, if the lithium-ion battery, charger or the cable is defective. Another major risk factor is the thermal runaway of lithium-ion batteries. To combat this major issue we introduced a lithium-ion storage cabinet.
You can rest easy in the knowledge that you can charge your batteries overnight and they will be protected by a 90-minute fire-rated cabinet that has smoke detection and fire suppression built-in.
