Fitting electrics into your container gym is an important consideration, and at Lion containers we supply, fit and test all electrical components. Shipping containers can be modified to suit your ideas, from simple electrics to more complex set-ups. This covers gym equipment, standard or high spec mood lighting, sound and TV systems.
For gym conversions, we advise installing a complete climate control system. This involves a number of multi-function air conditioners, controlled directly by the user. This means you will have total power to monitor temperature, including heating, cooling, humidity and air circulation.
For shipping container gyms, we reinforce the floor with a 3mm Durbar floor, with stitch weld and sealed joints. A reinforced floor is essential to hold the weight of heavy gym equipment.
