Container Case Study

The container was modified to provide a bunded floor area which would hold high quantities of liquid should a barrel of ink leak.

The original marine ply container floor was removed and a sub floor was created with new steel bearers for strengthening, this was then overlaid with a flow forge floor to all areas apart from the centre where a Durbar strip was installed to assist in loading and unloading material from the container. A drain valve was installed for easy emptying should a leak occur. We fabricated and installed 3 tier custom shelving from 2mm flat steel sheet (providing a 400mm depth) with 50mm x 50mm x 3mm uprights. This was installed to one full length side of container, allowing access to the removable bunded floor. Zone 1 lighting and heating was installed, with 4 tubes of lighting and 2 heaters. 4 x 45 degree louvered vents were also installed; each measuring 300mm x 300mm to allow adequate ventilation. The unit was prepared, masked and painted to RAL7038 with self-priming specialised container paint.
