We received an enquiry from an environmental company based in Yorkshire, who required a solution for the storage and shipping of heavy process machinery. We took a new 40ft container and carried out the conversion in just over a month. We installed bespoke electrics which included four 5’ twin anti corrosive lights, two 13A twin metal clad sockets, a 20 SP air conditioner isolator, an MCB distribution board, and a 32A 5 pin mains appliance inlet.
We lined and insulation the container using 15mm melamine faced board, which was fitted onto 500 tanalised timber studding. Rockwool insulation was pinned and compressed into the cavities between the board and shell, to the walls and cargo doors. The same process was carried out on the ceiling, but with 3mm MFC. We also supplied and fitted a 4.5mm aluminium durbar floor, which was welded into the container structure, over the existing floor.
We installed two wall mounted 4.2KW Hi-Wall Libero S Indoor units, and two 5.2KW inverter outdoor units. These units were externally covered with a grate, so as to prevent sand ingress.
Our client required the container to be visually appealing, so we removed the original decals and CSC Plate. primed any bare steel or weld marks, and prepared and masked the door bars and seals. We then painted the container in RAL9010 with self-priming specialist container paint, applied new black decals and refitted the CSC Plate. Because the container was required for shipping, the CSC plate was updated with a minimum 1 year validity. The container roof was painted with solar reflective paint, so as to reduce heat gain.
