IBC Chemical Tote Storage

Hazardous Chemical Storage Fire-Rated and Non-Fire-Rated Protection

Intermediate bulk containers (IBC), commonly called totes, are an economical and efficient method of storing and transferring dangerous chemicals. Caged IBC totes are a single-container storage solution that can store and isolate incompatible hazardous materials. Chemical totes are a logical storage solution. These large bulk containers are ideal for the universal handling, storing and disposal of large volumes of dangerous liquid chemicals. Totes are also bulky and cumbersome, and can become hard to manage at a job-site. Moving the containers for workflow processes while maintaining storage compliance can be difficult. This is why our Chemical Storage Tote Lockers are specifically designed for Tote storage and handling. Easily manage inventory with forklift accessibility, maintain full compliance with secondary spill containment, and optional mechanical ventilation, climate control, lighting, and dry chemical fire suppression. Streamline your entire process and maintain chemical storage compliance with OSHA, NFPA, and EPA standards.

Engineered with your unique rental needs in mind

When considering adequate protection, safety engineers must treat each classification of hazardous material with respect and the understanding that incompatible storage with other dangerous chemicals can result in dire consequences. IBC tote container storage is no different. Each container of hazardous material must be treated with respect and diligence in proper storage. Improper storage and negligence mix like fire and gasoline. Any margin of error can—and will—result in catastrophe, if not properly mitigated. U.S. Hazmat Rentals can accommodate large IBC totes with ease, so you can get back to work and make your mark in the construction world.

The advantages of renting chemical lockers for IBC totes

They are mobile. Large swinging forward-facing doors allow project engineers and employees to easy access IBC totes with either a forklift or hand-truck without disrupting your work-flow processes. Unique shelving and push-back racking systems can be easily implemented to increase convenience.

They are durable. Made from the toughest gauge of steel, our storage lockers are fire, weather and theft-resistant.

They are convenient. Easily accessible fork-lift pockets allow for the easy relocation of storage lockers from one job-site to the next. And since you’re only renting the lockers, you don’t have to worry about the costs of routine maintenance.

They are safe and secure. Large continuous steel grated flooring sits atop a chemical sump to collect spills and accidents if they do happen. Dry fire suppression systems give you peace of mind so you can focus on what matters most.
