Big Blok Storage Containers at work
Big Blok Storage containers perfect for temporary storage in Labs
Big Blok is extremely versatile in many applications to within industry. The areas where our product performs well includes:

  • Quick & easy to assemble and break down
  • Protects connections & valves via a designed recessed area
  • Neoprene O-rings for strong chemicals and water tight seal
  • Mitigating environmental incidents
  • Temporary storage and clean up vessels
  • Barricades & Dikes
  • First aid supplies storage
  • In addition, Big Blok is perfect for smaller storage and use tanks for additives, trials and special applications constrained by:

  • Tight areas
  • Smaller quantities, less than IBCs
  • Manageable by one to two people
  • Short and long term trials
  • Convenience for areas requiring the material in smaller, stackable interconnecting units
  • Chemicals preloaded can be handled via flat tractor trailers, pallets and by hand to users
  • 20°C (68°F)
