Railway Cleaning Systems GmbH from Reinach, Switzerland considers the VARIBOX an excellent solution for storing hazardous substances. Founded in 2007, the company specializes in designing and manufacturing cleaning and wastewater treatment systems for rail vehicles.

Comply with legal requirements with the VARIBOX

To comply with legal requirements for storing alkaline or acid-based cleaning agents, the “Leitfaden für die Praxis” is used in Switzerland. This guide describes in detail the legally required storage of hazardous substances, which must be stored in approved collection trays that meet certain requirements. These trays must be made of media-resistant material, have a usable volume at least as large as the largest container, and be leakproof. The VARIBOX meets all of these requirements and is approved by UN/ADR and DIBt.

The Railway Cleaning Systems faced a challenge in their workshop in BLS Böningen, where space was limited. They needed a compact solution, which they found in the VARIBOX. In the past, single-walled standard IBCs were used, requiring structural modifications to meet legal requirements. The VARIBOX eliminated the need for costly modifications.

VARIBOX a completely closed system

Employees are better protected

According to Marc Uhr from Railway Cleaning Systems, the VARIBOX solves even more safety-related issues. Equipped with a closed dispensing system, Safeline Performance, employees are better protected from exposure to chemicals, reducing the risk of contact with hazardous substances to a minimum. Other advantages of the VARIBOX over conventional IBCs include ergonomic design, a low working height, and protection from spray and rainwater.

The Railway Cleaning Systems will recommend the secure concept of the VARIBOX to other customers and expect that the VARIBOX will be used in many systems in the future. For more information about the company, contact persons, or products, visit their website.

The full containment IBCs are available in many different colors as blue, dark blue, yellow, orange, green, and natural to match your product coding.
