Viking's IBC Containment Unit Overview
Viking's IBC Containment Unit is used to store single ignitable IBC's (Intermediate Bulk Containers) when located within manufacturing, process areas, small storage or similar environments. The unit is particularly useful when a limited number of IBC’s are introduced to an area where a fixed fire protection system is not in place or not able to effectively cover the additional risks involved with Class B liquids. Subject to AHJ acceptance, the unit also gives the option to utilize non-Listed/Approved IBC containers.
The IBC fire protection containment unit is intended to capture an ignitable liquid release within a footprint designed to limit the size of a potential pool fire. Limiting the size of the pool surface within the unit limits the heat release rate of the fire thereby limiting the expected damage within occupancy.
