With the wintry weather at your door and some harsher elements causing day-to-day challenges, it is the perfect time of year to consider which shipping container modifications will enhance your storage unit or converted box. Whether the priority is to maximise security for your equipment and belongings, or to keep your customers comfortable as they visit your shipping container retail space, there are so many modification options for you to consider. Here are our top recommendations:
Adding a canopy to your shipping container bar or cafe will keep your customers dry and happy whilst they queue at the serving hatch. Canopies are a straightforward modification which are mostly quick to install.
Canopies can bridge between two separate container units, or can roll out to protect customers visiting the one converted container. Simply choose which design best suits your needs, and the Lion Containers team will get it installed. Your customers will certainly be thanking you on those windy and rainy days.
Windows with Anti-Vandal Shutters
Installing windows to your shipping container is an optimal way to allow in natural sunlight and instantly brighten the space. Window installation is one of the most popular shipping container modifications on the market for both storage boxes and retails spaces, with some customers even choosing french doors to maximise on the daylight.
If you want natural daylight, without the risk of windows being broken into or to reduce the risk of a break-in when not in use, then anti-vandal shutters are a key add-on. Installing anti-vandal shutters is a top-tier way to prevent thieves breaking the windows to access the interior of you modified shipping container.
Humidity is a common problem that shipping container owners may encounter during the winter months if ventilations has not been correctly and effectively installed. Good ventilation balances the temperature inside and outside of your shipping container, thus its installation goes a long way in preventing humidity. The installed ventilation withdraws warm, moisture-filled air from the unit, whilst allowing in fresh air from the exterior. At Lion we offer a variety of ventilation options – be sure to get in touch today and one of our shipping container modification experts will help you to determine the best ventilation option for your container.
Supplying electrics to your container is easier than you might think. The plug-and-go technology means that little is required in terms of permanent infrastructure. In most cases, a simple electrical hook-up can be completed in half a day.
Electrics can be very useful for storage shipping containers, providing power for facilities such as lighting and heating – essential shipping container modifications over the winter months.
