Insulated Shipping Container: Uses and Advantages
A truly wide range of different industries — from construction, to retail, and to medical — count on steel storage containers to solve problems. While standard conex boxes are effective for the vast majority of businesses, insulated shipping containers allow companies to have precise temperature control over what they store.
At TP Trailers & Truck Equipment, we’re the PA headquarters for shipping containers that countless businesses rely on. We sell our custom modifications year round. One of the unique and often needed conversions that we offer is an insulated shipping storage container — see how these units prove essential to a variety of industry environments.
How Businesses Use a Climate-Controlled Storage Container
Climate-controlled storage containers primarily have two main uses: keeping temperature-sensitive material safe and keeping people comfortable.
Since high and low temperatures alike can damage electronics, that is one of the most common uses for these containers. Often, this is needed in a retail setting to keep merchandise protected from the temperature before it can be moved into the store. However, some businesses also have digital file storage or electronic control rooms in a climate-controlled storage container adjacent to their main building. Finally, since medical supplies have precise requirements, hospitals and clinics often use insulated storage containers. At TP Trailers & Truck Equipment, we have ample experience building for the medical community — reach out to get a quote for medical storage equipment.
Climate-controlled storage containers are also used as the base for mobile offices and other buildings. For example, we’ve sold containers for use as lunchrooms and locker rooms that needed to be temperature controlled to stay comfortable in the heat and cold. Mobile offices are one of our custom container specialties at TP Trailers & Truck Equipment, and they almost always require insulation. Whether you only need the custom mobile office for a brief period on a jobsite, or it’s a permanent part of your facility, our quality work means you’ll be comfortable for as long as you use the space.
Best Way to Insulate a Shipping Container
Modifying shipping containers is one of our specialties at TP, and unlike other container companies, we perform our own modifications on-site at our custom fabrication shop. The best way to insulate a shipping container is to add insulated panels to the interior walls and then equip it with an HVAC system. This gives the shipping container weather resistance and temperature essentially equivalent to any other indoor space.
If you know climate control is a need of yours, we recommend letting our fabricators handle the work rather than trying to do it yourself to save money on your equipment budget. Our team is experienced in the best ways to insulate a shipping container to make it something you can rely on in hot and cold temperatures.
