Hazardous Material Storage

Codes and Regulations Governing the Storage of Hazardous Chemicals and Processes

Governmental codes and regulations dictate the correct selection and placement of hazardous chemical storage Lockers, Non-Occupancy Buildings and Occupancy Buildings. The characteristics of the stored material i.e. flammability, pH, material storage temperature, the size and type of container(s), the total quantity stored, and the storage location in relation to other structures will determine which code(s) and regulations pertain to your application. 

Regulations and Codes of note that may affect your storage application are NFPA 30 "Storage of Flammable Liquids", the IBC and IFC "International Building Code" and "International Fire Code", as well as the code of Federal regulations 40 CFR 264.175 (OSHA). Additionally independent third party testing agencies such as Factory Mutual (FM) have developed standards for the storage of flammable and other hazardous materials. DENIOS sells and produces Factory Mutual approved products.

DENIOS sales and engineering professionals are well versed in the requirements of National codes as they pertain to the storage of hazardous chemicals. However, the local code enforcement official or "Authority Having Jurisdiction" is the official closest to the situation with the responsibility to interpret the applicable codes in the light of all local factors. The local "AHJ" should always be consulted before purchasing any type of hazardous material storage equipment. DENIOS is always available to assist customers with supplementary information to support approval process.


DENIOS Quality Assurance Program

As part of our ongoing commitment to quality, DENIOS maintains a formalized, structured Quality Assurance Program. This program mandates that designs are checked and rechecked by 3rd Party Engineering firms for structural loading, seismic, and other code compliance factors.

DENIOS equipment is also engineered to satisfy any number of regulatory agencies including:

  • NFPA - National Fire Protection Association
  • IBC - International Building Code
  • EPA - Environmental Protection Agency
  • OSHA - Occupational Safety and Health Administration
  • FM / FM Global - Factory Mutual Research
  • State Approval Departments

Relating to equipment manufacture, our Quality Assurance Program also insures all products are thoroughly inspected and tested before shipping. Tests range from, but are not limited to, pre-paint sump weld leak tests to temperature control tests for our heated and cooled structures. Testing is documented and overseen by our Engineering, Technical Sales, and Production staff.

 

 


The DENIOS System

The DENIOS System of Storage Lockers, Occupancy Buildings, and Non-Occupancy Buildings specifically address the material handling and processing needs of the client. All our structures are designed for placement indoors or out and can be easily relocated via crane or forklift. All provide options for fire rating, explosion protection, and temperature control. All designs address what and how much is being storage and how often it needs to be handled. And all are compliant.


Non-Occupancy Chemical Storage Buildings

DENIOS is the pioneer in the development of Drum and IBC Non-Occupancy Storage Buildings as a safer and more efficient alternative to Walk-In/Occupancy buildings for chemical storage. The Non-Occupancy design of these buildings, featuring full-face opening door styles, allows all materials to be moved via forklift, relieving personnel from having to enter a potentially hazardous environment and provide complete physical separation of stored chemicals from the surrounding facility and/or  from other incompatible chemicals or ignitions. 

Sizes and Styles:

  • 48 standard configurations of base models
  • Individual storage bays sized for 2 or 3 pallets of drums or IBCs
  • Bays are arranged in configurations offering single- or double-tier heights
  • Models are available with single-sided access 
  • All units are built to accommodate outdoor placement 

Common Applications for Non-Occupancy Buildings:

  • Segregated indoor or outdoor storage of flammable or other process chemicals 
  • Separation of flammable liquids from general warehousing areas
  • Temperature controlled outdoor storage of raw materials
  • Higher volume waste accumulation and storage areas

Occupancy Chemical Storage Buildings

DENIOS Occupancy Chemcial Storage Building designs provide more storage flexibility, enhancing the efficiency of the structure over competitive models. Choose from over 25 standard sizes to provide the optimal space for storing your hazardous chemicals or processes. 

Designed for occupancy by personnel, DENIOS also provides numerous options to enhance safety, efficiency, and security in all our Occupancy Buildings. Most models are FM Approved. 

Sizes and Styles: 

  • Available in 8, 10, and 12 foot widths with lengths from 8 to 52 feet
  • All units are built to accommodate indoor or outdoor placement. 
  • Door styles include hinged or roll-up and can be designed in multiple configurations
  • Non-Combustible, Fire Rated, and Temperature Controlled models available 

Popular Applications: 

  • Process Enclosures: Pumping, Mixing, Dispensing, Paint Kitchen
  • Remote Storage: Waste Collection, Fuel Dispensing
  • Agricultural Chemical Storage: Parks and Recreation, Golf Courses
  • Secured Storage and Separation: Toxic, Dangerous, Valuable Materials
  • HazMat Storage of drums handled by hand
  • Fuel Component Enclosures
  • Battery Testing Enclosures

Chemical Storage Lockers

DENIOS's provides business and industry with the most complete Chemcial Storage Locker program available. Designed for small volume outdoor storage of drums and totes, DENIOS manufactures a variety of models; from secured, basic storage of non-combustible chemicals to more robust designs for hazardous applications, including 2-hour fire rated construction. 

The majority of DENIOS Lockers are FM Approved. 

Sizes & Styles: 

  • Locker capacities from 2-14 drums, 1-2 IBC Totes
  • All units are built to accommodate outdoor placement.
  • Door styles vary and include hinged doors and roll-up doors
  • Locker and door heights allow added headroom for attachment of mixers and pumps for dispensing/processing 
  • Non-Combustible, fire rated, and/or temperature controlled models available

Common Applications:

  • Outdoor storage of small volumes of hazardous chemicals
  • Rail, marine, truck and DOT terminals, storing/dispensing lubricants and oils
  • Parks, turf, and nursery centers for storage of fertilizers and pesticides
  • Temperature controlled outdoor storage of raw materials
