These hazardous-materials storage buildings have FM approval

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company recently received FM approval for its Rack Fire Protect (RFP) non-occupancy buildings. Fire rated for 2 hours at 2,192°F, they minimize the risk of fire spreading, making them suitable for the storage of flammable chemicals, lithium-ion batteries and other volatile materials. The adjustable racking system can accommodate up to forty-eight drums or twelve intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). Whether in single or double-tiered configurations, these designs effectively organize hazardous materials, ensuring proper segregation. Proven in hundreds of installations worldwide, they are now manufactured in the U.S. for North American installations. — Denios US, Inc., Louisville, Ky.
