Frequently asked questions
Q. Can each box seal be replaced?
A. Replacement seal kits are available.
Q. Can each box be padlocked?
A. Each box has the means of being padlocked
Q. Can the boxes be secured in a vehicle?
A. 1. The larger DUAL box can be secure to the vehicle body using the typical “ratchet straps”; the smaller PEST PARTNER box has “D-rings” at each end that can facilitate similar securing to a vehicle body.
2. UPDATE: The Chemlock® Security Frame has been specifically designed to secure the Dual Box - see the following link Chemlock® Security Frame
Q. What is the carrying capacity of the DUAL box when a PEST PARTNER box is mounted in the DUAL box?
A. There are options for 4 additional standard 5 litre cans that can be housed alongside one PEST PARTNER box, or two PEST PARTNERS can securely held with for example the remaining storage space containing contaminated protective clothing. Please note when a PEST PARTNER box contains Aluminium Phosphide flasks and is secured in the DUAL box, no other containers containing aqueous based or flammable liquids can be carried in the DUAL box.
Q. What are the multi-uses of the PEST PARTNER?
A. Alternative pest control compounds i.e. Gels, powders, etc.
Q. Why shouldn't I buy a steel box?
A. Use of a steel box can give rise to two high-risk issues.a) A steel box of the same capacity as the DUAL box is at least twice as heavy, hence the DUAL box’s significantly lower weight allows Users not to compromise the Health & Safety lifting weights guidance, andb) Steel boxes can rust through wear and tear use; rust is corrosive and can lead to moisture being present which in itself presents a risk of an explosion when using Aluminium Phosphide. Equally the material used for the two Chemlock ® boxes has a much superior “crash resistance” than steel and is therefore not subject to being distorted in the event of a box being dropped; the latter situation could lead to a break in a steel box’s lid.
Q. Why shouldn't I buy a fiberglass box?
A. Fiberglass boxes can crack under impact hence in using a fiberglass box to carry flasks containing Aluminium Phosphide based gassing agents there can be a real potential of an explosion in the event of the fiberglass box being dropped or impacted, for example during a vehicle accident.
Q. Is it safe to use a Chemlock® box for transporting Glyphosate?
A. Yes; steel adversely reacts with Glyphosate, whereas the Chemlock’s thermoplastic material is non re-active.
