In a modern world where everything always has to be on the go, the portable storage cubicle has provided business owners with an intelligent means of safely keeping and mobilizing their goods. Storage containers have also gained popularity among homeowners as a multipurpose depository that enables them to maximize the space in their homes.
More than that, these flexible containers have evolved quickly from a convenient stowage space to an all-around area, which is useful for almost anything from a mini art studio to a mobile kitchenette. Because of the endless potentials of these containers, several companies now provide consumers with conversion services to ensure that the storage cubicles will suit the clients’ business and lifestyle needs.
Storage containers traditionally have doors only at one end, but it is now possible to alter them to have doors on the sides or on both ends for better access. It is now also possible to install additional windows. This is particularly useful if you plan to turn the container into an office or even a security hut. Sidewall roller shutters are recommended modifications for containers that are to be used as food outlets. Personnel doors can also be fitted inside based on your specifications.
If you wish to utilize the container for more than one function, partitions can be fitted as well. For containers that are to be utilized as work areas by two or more persons, these dividers can provide privacy. Some companies can arrange safe electrical installations for their clients. Air-conditioning, phone and internet connections can be set up for your convenience. For those who prefer natural lighting, skylights can also be custom-built.
Having shelves added allows you to take full advantage of the container’s storage capacity. Business-minded individuals often utilize storage containers as their mobile store. Built-in shelves can be used to hold their products. Likewise, they can also convert containers into walk-in cold rooms to keep perishable food and preserves. Similarly, there are add-ons that will allow you to heat perishables.
Storage containers used for shipping commonly have vents already installed. To improve air circulation and to prevent condensation, extra vents can also be fixed. Some companies can offer moisture traps for containers as well as anti-condensation coating. This should be considered if you wish to keep your washing machine in the storage cubicle. If you need to control the temperature within a container, proper lining and insulation is necessary.
Some homeowners use containers for recreational activities and some musicians use them for band practice. Proper lining can help keep the sound confined within the container. Consider this also when using the container as a pump enclosure especially if your area has noise restrictions.
You can also convert containers into laboratories, whether it is for your personal scientific projects or for industrial purposes. Worktops can be made chemical resistant and fume cupboards may be installed. Fire suppression and ESD floors are other features that can be added into laboratory containers.
Storage containers are also ideal for sustainable housing. This is due to their strong resistance against extreme weather conditions. They are also invulnerable to fire, mold and termites. Another popular add-on fixture is the ramp. This is suitable for containers that are used for keeping heavy furniture and appliances. The containers’ interior and exterior can be painted and customized to suit the theme of your business or to reflect your personality.
