Farm Chemical Sheds Designed For Safety & Sustainability Compliance

Farm Sheds

Chemical sheds design for on-farm storage that meets safety and sustainability requirements.

Safe and compliant on-farm chemical storage is more important than ever, particularly for meeting sustainability requirements such as ISCC sustainable grain requirements. As a result, well-designed and well-built chemical sheds are important infrastructure for cropping enterprises. 

Meet Regulations With Safe & Compliant Chemical Shed Designs

Action chemical shed designs have been developed to help you follow chemical manufacturer’s storage recommendations and meet chemical storage regulations.

You can learn more about the Action Chemical shed range, including designs, sizes and prices here – Standard Chemical Shed Brochure (Size & Price Guide)

These designs include bunded concrete floors and ventilation options such as ridge vent and wall vents. Sliding doors or roller doors are also effectively used to provide airflow as required – in addition to providing clear access to the shed. 

Ensuring the shed is well illuminated is another important design consideration and is included in the ISCC grower self-assessment checklist. This can be achieved by installing hi-bay lighting in the shed to make tasks like mixing chemicals easier and safer. Lights installed on the shed exterior can also allow the shed to be safely used during low light hours.

There are other compliance considerations that may not impact the shed design but will need to be addressed such as shed location. 

Functional Spray Sheds & Chemical Storage Ideas

There are a number of ways that you can customise your chemical shed to ensure that your storage is functional and suits your operational requirements too – as well as being safe and compliant. 

Options that you could consider for your build include a cantilevered canopy for a covered outdoor mixing area or incorporating a drive-through sprayer section. 

A concreted apron wash-down area with drainage points is also a good inclusion. This helps maintain a high level of hygiene and prevents contamination

We also recommend taking advantage of the height of your shed by installing shelving and pallet racking. 

Our building consultants are available to discuss these options with you and provide advice on details such as practical heights and access points. 

The On Farm Chemical Shed Guide is also a great starting point for best-practice ideas including sizes and project examples.
