Polystar offers a variety of sizes to meet your energy storage system and/or lithium-ion battery storage needs. Storage buildings are available in 8-foot, 10-foot or 12-foot depths with a maximum length of 30 feet. If you require a custom size building, please contact our sales department for additional information on our custom sizes.
Our prefabricated storage battery containment systems offer a unique design that satisfies the requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Polystar hazardous spill containment buildings can be customized with an optional 2-hour fire rating, 4-hour fire rating or a non-fire rating (noncombustible).
Installing the storage building is an efficient process. Installation can be done during truck offload, unless there are electrical hook-ups. Those are the responsibility of the customer, as is seismic anchoring.
Site preparation includes ensuring there is a clean, flat surface on which to drop the building. Additionally, please prepare electrical connections and/or water connections for optional sprinklers, if applicable.
While our competitors typically use a steel foundation, Polystar’s hazmat spill buildings use a sump foundation constructed with a heavy-duty I-beam. Our integrated sump foundation provides superior strength that is vital to hazmat storage buildings. Polystar uses an integrated sump to ensure that all potential spills are captured.

"I have been installing Poly Dike MPE Systems for well over a year. My business requires a system that ships easily and installs quickly with minimal personnel and tools yet provides robust spill containment in a professional looking package. The MPE System not only meets, but exceeds my expectations in each of these areas ... All-in-all, I guess what’s most impressive is that after a single installation, every customer of mine now requires that I use the Poly Dike MPE for his job site. Nothing speaks more to the confidence me and my customers have in the MPE system than that."
