Storage and warehouse

Overview

Storage and warehouse

We all trust that what we store is kept safe until such time as we need it, which is a good reason to look at the conditions in which we leave our valuable products.

Additionally places like waste processing plants, warehouses, and petrol tanks can pose a serious threat to the surrounding area. It is important to limit the affected area if the stored products would catch fire.
