Secure Drum & IBC Storage: The DPU Range


The incorrect storage or poor management of liquids can have far reaching consequences for your business and the environment. Despite the UK Oil Storage Regulations being amongst the most highly publicised in the world, it can be easy to forget that any liquid can pose a threat to health, safety and the environment if not handled correctly. Secure drum storage is essential in safeguarding your business employees.

Our Drum and IBC Stores help ensure a secure solution for liquid storage, come rain or shine. The range is the result of over 30 years expertise in the design and manufacturing of bunded storage.

As a result, each unit has crane lifting points, sloping roofs with rain channels and base plinths to eliminate ground contact with the underside of the sump as standard. Each has sliding or hinged lockable doors dependent on model type, keeping contents safe from vandalism or unauthorised entry.

  • Each is constructed from 3mm mild steel, the sumps are fully seam welded and fitted with support beams for the pallets to sit on.
  • The units are delivered to site ready to use.
  • The units’ are fully compliant with all current UK regulations relating to sump capacities.
