Lithium-Ion Battery Storage Containers
Secure battery storage containers, rooms and enclosures designed and built to provide safety and peace of mind on your sites.
We chose two 20ft double door containers as the basis for secure temperature controlled enclosures. Vinyl floor was fitted for easy cleaning, HVAC and gland plate pipes were built into protected recesses and twin pack paint to finish to enhance UV protection as the containers are to be located in Afghanistan.
Many industries have requirements for safe chemical stores, with safe ammonia storage particularly being a challenge. Our chemical storage containers are the ideal business solution for these industry challenges.
Modified, repainted and converted shipping containers for use as unique exhibition display stands. Our containers make an excellent, flexible and unique alternative to traditional exhibition and branding displays.
Cafes and Bars
We convert shipping containers into stunning bespoke cafes, restaurants and pop-up bars.
Container conversions for packaged biomass boilers with integral fuel stores providing the most cost effective commercial / municipal heating solutions.
Professional Container Paint Facility
Our large paint booth enables painting of containers and larger units to high quality finishes. The booth features filtered and heated air in to create a prefect environment for paint application, and temperature controlled baking cycles for paint finishing. We are able to apply single and two pack products of varying types.
Equipment Enclosure Container
This equipment enclosure continues to show that customers need us to be able to position apertures and ventilation outlets specifically to suit the processes or equipment they contain.
Sound Attenuation Containers
Due to noise restrictions on the site where this 20ft unit was to operate we fitted it out with sound attenuation paneling and louvres. In this case the forced ventilation fan was also silenced.
End Lift Container Delivery Method
One of the two common methods of lifting containers which can be used for especially heavy units as these vehicles can lift and transport fully loaded (30 tonnes) containers if required. The photo shows lifting a heavy 40ft conversion.
Hiab Type top Lift Container Delivery Method
The most common method of container delivery is with a hiab type single point lift crane. We work with a number of specialist vehicle operators who manage our site deliveries and site positioning throughout the UK.
20ft Open Side Unit
This complete open side unit (one of a number of specials we generally stock) had the cargo doors replaced with a solid corrugated wall, chequer plate floor and louvres fitted as a boiler enclosure.
We provided a bespoke containised solution to house the world’s first liquid air energy storage plant, designed and developed by Highview Power and housed at project partner Viridor’s Pilsworth site in Bury.
We can fit a wide range of air handling and air conditioning / HVAC equipment, including frame arrangements that allow containers to be shipped and the equipment then deployed on site.
Aluminium Lined Container
Our customer installs a specific process inside this unit for which we insulate a standard 40ft container and line with aluminium sheet, plus a personnel door.
Blast Retardant Containers
Converted from standard 40ft steel shipping containers to protect workers on refinery sites during maintenance shutdowns, these units are designed to withstand a 5PSI chemical blast.
Container Fitted Crane / Lifting Beams
Crane beams of various forms are relatively easy to install within workshops and equipment houses, i.e. pump rooms. They are fully load tested and certified. We typically supply complete with beam trolley and hoist, not shown.
Containers for Exhibition Use
Within the field of unusual requests we were asked to supply and were happy to oblige with 40ft containers to the Ford Motors stand of the 2004 Motor Show at the NEC (the Thunderbird theme). The units were subsequently also used for the Paris Motor Show. We worked with the customer to paint the units a suitable colour that was then specially lit on the stand.
Control Unit Containers
This unit was to container electrical equipment cabinets, so we installed Unistrut in the floor and around the walls for secure fixing of the units, given that these also had to withstand the dynamic forces associated with transportation. We also supplied forced ventilation with plenum mounted fans in order that heat generated by the units could be expelled.
Din Type Apertures
This unit is destined for the Middle East and we provided laser cut plates for the customer to connect an internal water treatment system to other equipment and vessels. We can also have plates spot faced should applications require it.
Within our workshops we are able to fabricate specific non-standard items for incorporation into customer designs, as this cable ducting arrangement shows.
Laboratory units supplied with specialist resin-based chemical resistant worktop.
A-Frame Container Unit
The customer wanted the versatility of a 20ft container and a hook-lift A-frame so we combined the two. This unit has a permanently welded A-frame chassis attached to it. If a customer needs to be able to separate the two we can supply an A-frame platform with twistlocks that a container would attach to in the same way as to a vehicle trailer.
Container TV Broadcast Studio
A fully lined and insulated, air conditioned, carpet walled and partitioned broadcast control studio. Fully shippable.
Ply Lined 20ft Container
This is a basic ply lined container for use as a general equipment store with optional additional air vents. Whatever customers require we are able to advise accordingly to ensure the end result is as suitable as possible for the application and budget.
Process Enclosure Container
Process enclosure incorporating two lifting beams allowing heavy equipment to be handled for servicing, etc. Exact positioning of various apertures for connections of the process equipment to external systems meant that a complex roof framework was required for the mounting of the beams in exactly the correct position for lifting. High ventilation throughput with fans.
Pump Enclosure Containers
Sometimes we have to come up with solutions to requirements, and in this case it was a sand trap louvre, designed and fabricated in our workshops and then galvanized.
This 40ft unit was supplied to a primary school to enable children to be cared for before and after school hours.
Security Hut Container
This unit was for positioning on a site and for use as a security hut. The narrow windows shown are opening louvres.
Site Office Containers
A very common request is to convert containers to site offices, mess room, or storage cabins. Armoured and normal personnel doors are commonly fitted into the sidewalls of the container. However, in the example below the customer decided to use the original doors for security and had an internal bulkhead fitted just behind them, with a wooden internal door.
Site Workshop Container
The unit ended up welded to the deck of a ship for ship refurbishment.
Site Workshop Container with Work Bench
Site workshop with work bench, bund tray floor and internal partition with 110v transformer in the atrium.
Sound and Vandal Proof Containers
We were approached by a blue chip customer requiring a vandal-proof shell for mobile generators, which were also insulated for sound deadening to improve the attractiveness of their product in the mobile generator rental market.
Specialist Container Lining for Nuclear Industry
Aluminium / stainless steel lining including specialist ventilation fixing points for the nuclear industry.
Specialised, bespoke fabrications and containers.
Tool Stores and Rigging Lofts
We can provide modified units complete with tool stores, cupboards and work benches to general or exact requirements.
Our Role In Your Project
Whether you require a basic sports club changing room, living accommodation or a highly modified, attenuated, thermally lined, temperature controlled unit with apertures and gland plates galore, we see our role as the provider of a finished product ready to use or receive your equipment/ process/ control panels, without needing further modification by you.
We want to get involved in your project, so we will ask a lot of questions to ensure that all the product related issues have been correctly dealt with (such as structural loading and integrity) and also ensure other specialist features have all been thoroughly thought through and designed.
