Safely moving large volumes of hazardous materials

The 40ft steel container offers a weather-proof, well ventilated spacious area to house large quantities of dangerous goods. Dangerous Goods (DGs) containers are designed to protect your team, the public and the environment from the toxic, hazardous products the container holds. Containers comply with Australian Hazardous Goods Regulations and provide you with peace of mind that you’re taking all necessary precautions.

Reduce the risks associated with storing DGs

We understand the importance of efficient ventilation, maintaining a lower inside temperature, minimising leakage and exposure to hazardous, dangerous and toxic materials. To help reduce the risks involved with handling DGs, our containers are made from impenetrable steel, high-security double doors, and are designed to contain or safely drain spills. Each DG container is compliant with Australian Standards (AS-1940-2004) and can store Class 3 Dangerous Goods.

Buying a 40ft container is the safe way to store your large amounts of dangerous materials long term. Get a quote today on purchasing a National Container.
