The Benefits of Steel Containers for Storage Purposes  

Steel containers offer a multitude of benefits that are especially valuable to construction companies. Your materials are undoubtedly heavy-duty; shouldn’t your storage solution be as well?  

 

Durability  

Steel containers are durable! Their tough exterior is resistant to harsh elements, protecting from wind, rain, and heat damage. They are also highly secure, deterring theft with their robust composition and lock systems.  

 

Versatility 

Beyond durability and security, steel containers offer a flexible storage solution. Being modular, they can be easily transported and placed exactly where they’re needed most. Their spacious interiors accommodate a wide range of construction materials and equipment and they can easily be modified if required.  

 

Cost Effectiveness 

Their cost-effectiveness cannot be overlooked. When compared to traditional storage options like warehouses or storage facilities, steel containers provide considerable savings. This is an essential factor for budget-conscious construction industries.

Unlocking the Potential of Shipping Containers for Construction Storage 

First, let’s talk about space. These containers come in various sizes, the most common being 20 and 40 feet. Their spacious, rectangular dimensions make for an ideal storage unit.

  

Need to store construction equipment? How about materials like cement, steel rods, or wood? It all fits neatly into a cargo container, helping to declutter your worksite and ensure nothing gets lost or damaged on a busy construction site. 

 

Further, these units are designed to weather the harshest conditions, guaranteeing protection against the elements. With minimal maintenance, these all-weather containers will safeguard your expensive construction equipment against rain, sun, snow, or hail.

#1. Storage for Equipment  

Shipping containers are a stellar choice for storing any kind of equipment you’ve got. These hardy structures can readily house heavy machinery, delicate devices, and anything in between. Made of rugged steel, the containers ward off outside factors like weather or theft, while keeping your equipment safe and in top shape.  

 

Plus, with 20 and 40-foot options to choose from, it’s easy to find one that suits your specific requirements.  

 

#2. Custom Shelving   

Need more organization within your container? No problem! You have the freedom to add custom shelving units, like our patented Atlas Shelving System, which can substantially increase your storage capacity.  These shelves are rated at 1000 lbs. per bracket and can be installed with 16″, 20″, or 24″ shelves, allowing for quick access to your equipment or materials. 

 

With shelving, you’ll spend less time sifting through gear and more time getting the job done. Nice! 

 

#3. Locking Systems   

Another big advantage of steel cargo containers is that they come with built-in locking systems to ensure maximum security. If you’re storing valuable equipment or supplies, you can rest easy knowing they’re locked up tight. Furthermore, it’s possible to upgrade these locking systems, adding extra protection against theft or intrusion. 

We offer: 

  • Our patented DRP Locking System  
  • Cargo door locks 
  • Hidden shackle “Hockey puck” locks 
  • Block or warehouse locks
