Case Study

Initially they required a 10ft green container but after discussing their options and going through various specifications, our client decided that a 20ft new (once shipped) container was more beneficial for their needs.

Our client required the container for storage and so a personnel door, 9mm ply over glass/wool insulation and shelving was required. An electrical connection for lighting was also required, this enabled them to access their stored items regardless of natural light available.

We installed a standard insulated, weatherproof personnel door (W 910mm x H 2065mm including frame - with a 90 degree opening of 710mm). This included a 10 point locking system with a 5 pin anti-drill Euro profile cylinder and full door furniture. A tie back was included to prevent the door from slamming, as was a rain run-off strip above the door.

The electrical specification included a 5' twin anti-corrosive light fitting and switch, a 13 amp twin socket and a 2KW wall mounted convector heater with single phase commando socket and distribution board.

For ease of storage, we supplied and installed a heavy duty boltless widespan shelving system (H 1980mm x D 600mm x L 1525mm). This unit was only half shelved so 3 bays were used, and the bays had 4 levels with each shelf carrying up to 400kg UDL.

The container was prepared, masked and painted with blue self-priming specialised container paint. A high security lockbox and insurance rated padlock was also fitted.

Case Study

Summary

The lead time given was 4 - 6 weeks, however our depot were finished in 3 weeks and our client was delighted with how quickly this was completed.
