Flat Pack Chemical Stores
The ExpandaChem is designed for the safe storage of chemicals and other hazardous materials, and is the most trusted and popular brand of flat pack shipping containers available in the UK. This product comes in three lengths: 2m, 3m and 4m. Key features of our flat pack chemical stores include:
Sumped base - incorporating a suspended floor grate so that spillages can be contained.
Portability - the Expadachem can be installed in areas inaccessible to conventional ready-built chemical stores.
Anti-Vandal – all flat pack chemical stores are constructed with galvanised steel, with a double locking system.
Value for money - the Expandachem is often the preferred choice for chemical storage as it meets most chemical storage requirements at a more budget friendly price!
Our range of flat pack containers also come with a host of accessories including sump shelves and colour options. Like the rest of our flat pack range, the chemical store is completely modular and can also be linked together to create larger spaces.
