Chemical-Storage-Unit

All of the magazines we manufacture are cost effective and are a time saving alternative to conventional construction. Our explosive storage magazines are designed to provide security for arms, ammunition, and explosives. Therefore, you can be assured that our units are fully moisture proof. Plus due to the insulating properties of concrete, the temperatures within the units can be maintained at an even level. The option to bury the units or place mounds against the walls reduces the explosives safety quantity distance arc and provides additional safety to neighbouring storage magazines.

Chemical-Storage-tank---FloorOur innovative, specially designed convex roof was created for the pyrotechnics industry. This roof is optional and focuses on providing a weakness at the highest arc. Should there be an explosion, the weak line in the roof will give way, crumble to small sized debris, thus reducing the possibility of injury and damage.
