Hazardous Materials Stores

Thurston’s portable Hazguard range is specifically designed for the safe storage of extremely hazardous materials such as flammable liquids, petroleum spirits, liquid petroleum, gas and pesticides.
Our hazardous material storage facilities, Hazguard, provide peace-of-mind protection for people and the environment and ensures you are meeting all of today’s stringent health and safety legislation.
Engineered to an extremely high standard, Hazguard hazardous material stores are made of fully galvanized structural steel panels and come in a variety of sizes. Naturally ventilated and with outward opening double doors, they can also be linked together to form a modular unit.
Floors have a 150mm-deep slip-resistant bund constructed from continuously welded 4.5mm Durbar steel plate. Doors open fully through 180 degrees and are fitted with two five-lever mortice deadlocks for maximum security. In addition, a heavy duty door retainer and a number of robust anti-jemmy features come as standard on our hazardous material storage facilities.

Hazguard mini-stores

Hazguard mini-stores have two removable steel shelves and are manufactured from heavy duty 2.5mm 12 gauge steel plate. They have gas strut assisted lids and full-width zinc-plated ‘piano’ hinges featuring 6mm thick anti-jemmy steel angle-welded to both sides of the lid.
Flamguard and Chemguard versions have a 150mm-deep spillage bund and vents with flame arresters. Gasguard has a welded steel open-grid floor for ventilation, two high level vents and explosive relief points. Our mini hazardous material storage buildings provide convenience and safety to smaller sites that require a smaller hazardous material store.

Hazardous Material Storage Buildings – External finish

A zinc-rich galvanic primer is applied to all external mild steel surfaces and weld areas. Fully galvanised panels are spray-coated with mid-grey semi-gloss fast enamel. Trims, including base frame, fascia and doors, are finished in bright red. These finishes will give your hazardous material storage buildings a professional look, as well as extra protection.

Hazardous Material Stores – Ease of use

Hazguard hazardous material stores are supplied with heavy duty roof-mounted galvanised steel lifting rings for ease of handling and added security.

Modular Buildings

Modular buildings have the potential to be built up to three storeys and almost unlimited floor space, Thurston Surespan modular buildings are also visually attractive and suitable for most locations and environments.

Portable Buildings

The portable buildings / cabins are pre-fabricated and self-contained. Surespace are manufactured to ISO 9003 standards from galvanised steel to ensure long-life durability, low maintenance and corrosion resistance.

Specialist Buildings

Our specialist portable buildings range is designed to meet a wide variety of requirements and as with all Thurston builds, we can be flexible in our design and production and will deliver to you on time and on budget.
