IBC Racking with Bund Installation

The client had been storing the IBCs on the floor and wanted to avoid block stacking to ensure no damage to the product and reduce the floor space required.

Thistle were asked to develop a solution which also incorporated a bund facility to ensure any drips, spills or indeed total IBC failure were contained, therefore meeting the strict SEPA requirements regarding chemical spills.

Thistle designed, manufactured and installed a 3 deep Maxi Cube push back racking solution which is 4 lanes wide and two levels high to accommodate a total 24 IBCs in just 19.36 m2.
Any leakages from the top tier of IBCs are caught by a heavy duty stainless steel drip tray which uses a gravity system to feed contents to the main bund at ground level.

Thistle used their Max the Cube approach to ensure the client not only received the best use of space but the solution delivered an excellent Return on Investment.
Project Manager, Stewart MacDonald, explained “Our Maxi Cube IBC Racking TM  can transform the use of space for IBC storage going up to 5 deep and 4 high depending on the available space and the weights of the IBCs themselves.”
