Safety measures

The distribution centre, which will store chemical products, consists of 26,000 m² for dry goods, 7,000 m² for hazardous goods and 3,000 m² of office space. To ensure safety in the hazardous goods warehouse, we installed sprinklers not only in the ceiling but also in the racks. In addition, a large number of detectors have been installed that immediately activate a powerful ventilation system in the event of hazardous gases being released.
