Custom Modular Construction

SAFETY STORAGE® Custom Modular Construction is an option to accommodate your custom hazardous material storage requirements.   SAFETY STORAGE® Modular Construction  is available in our Fire Rated and Non-Combustible wall designs.  Each building module is built and shipped to its destination where final assembly of the completed structure takes place.

SAFETY STORAGE® Custom Modular Construction  is an option to consider when transportation of an oversize building is restricted by the Department of Transportation.    SAFETY STORAGE® Custom Modular Construction may also be a solution when the building is to be located inside of an existing building and/or certain restrictions may exist.

SAFETY STORAGE® Custom Modular Construction buildings are designed to meet or exceed the current building code requirements in the jurisdiction in which it is delivered.

Custom Modular Construction

Vertical Split Buildings:  Custom Modular Construction is available in a custom length and width, in both standard and over height SAFETY STORAGE® product lines listed below.  The unit can be built free-span or with supporting columns in the interior.  If columns are required to help keep the building costs lower, they are strategically placed to minimize storage interference.  Vertical split buildings are an option when the required square footage is too large to transport as one structure.

Horizontal Split Buildings:  Custom Modular Construction is available in standard lengths and widths and can be built to desired heights, in all SAFETY STORAGE® product lines listed below.  Horizontal split buildings are in standard lengths and widths, therefore intermediate support columns are not required.  Horizontal Split Buildings are an option when the required building height is too tall to transport as one structure.

On-Site Assembly:  Minimal on-site assembly is required.  Each module is bolted together at joining columns and roof girders.  The fire rating (and/or insulation rating) of the wall is obtained by staggering the applicable dry-wall (and/or insulation) joints, which is clearly documented in the instruction package.  A pre-painted light gage steel skin is included to cover the drywall/insulation to give an aesthetically pleasing finished product.  A cap is also provided to install over the connecting roof girders and floor channels.  This, along with factory supplied caulk, prevents water from penetrating through the roof and spills through the floor.

Non-Combustible / Fire Rated Construction Options:  SAFETY STORAGE® Custom Modular Construction are available with the following options.
