Container Case Study
Our client sent a brief regarding what was required within the container in order for them to fit their own electrical equipment. The brief was sent to our fabricating team for pricing and the quotation was compiled. The customer received quotes from 3 different companies, and towards the end of February informed us that Lion Containers Ltd had won the tender. A meeting was arranged for the following day to confirm the full specification. Lion Containers recommended solutions for personnel inside the containers, who may experience glare due to the environment the unit was being sited in. Window cappings and solar reflective coatings were fabricated and included with the container to be retrofitted on site – this was so any issues were avoided during container shipping. Our CAD department compiled the drawings and plans for the customer to approve; the order was received at the end of March and delivered at the end of June.
The following modifications were undertaken:
Lining and insulation using Polyurethane spray foam insulation to 65mm and faced with high density celotex boards at 100mm with 9mm Melamine faced chip board finish. Applied to walls, ceiling and cargo doors.
