40FT DANGEROUS
GOODS CONTAINERS

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.

40ft Dangerous Goods containers are commonly used for:

  • Safe transport and storage of paints, diesel, pesticides, fertilisers, glues, antifreeze, pool chemicals, battery acid, brake fluid
  • Safe housing of flammables like petrol
  • Waste products
  • Secure shipping of gas cylinders
  • Storage of materials by paint businesses
  • On-site or at home lock up of non-DGs

Hiring a container is an inexpensive short-term solution. The hiring process is hassle-free, and typically the container will be delivered to your house, work, farm, or wherever you need it in 2-3 days, or even within 24 hours if required. With flexible hire periods beyond 1 month on offer and a range of delivery options to suit, this is an unbeatable, low commitment solution. Get a quote now and see why so many Australians choose National Containers to safely store their items.
