Prior to Installation

  1. The temperature controlled store can be lifted by crane (using lifting lugs x 4 on roof) or forklift using fork pockets in base only.  
  2. Make sure the container is empty when it’s being installed or relocated.  All doors and maintenance panels need to be secured and locked. The spill sump must be completely empty and cleaned out prior to the store being relocated. 
  3. If the store is being relocated, make sure the earthing stakes and wires (for the storage of Class 3 flammable or combustible substances) have been removed. 
  4. Keep the store properly restrained for safe transport and positioning at your site. 


  1. The location of your store must be according to regulatory requirements applicable, such as separation distances to protected and public places. For further details, refer to the Australian Standards and your own onsite risk assessment. 
  2. Choose a flat, stable surface for the store to be installed on. Ensure all base plates are adequately supported. 
  3. If there is vegetation at the site, make sure that it is kept short and away from the store. The fresh air intake and vents must always be kept clear. 
  4. If you are storing flammable or combustible substances, make sure you position the store at least 3 metres away from any ignition sources. 
  5. Chemical spill clean-up equipment and materials, such as spill kits, should be installed within easy reach of the store. 
  6. You may need to install a safety shower or eyewash facility if your risk assessment or the Australian Standards deem it appropriate.
