Shipping containers are an increasingly popular choice to transport and store machinery. These durable steel structures can provide a safe space to secure and protect all types of industrial equipment from both the elements and from unwanted interference.
The adaptability of shipping containers as equipment shelters is very clear in their construction. By removing one or more sides, these enclosures can be transformed to safeguard valuable machinery across diverse industries and they can be used to house machines such as generators, compressors, HVAC and milling equipment.
Further customization is also possible, with the interior being tailored to specific industrial needs, for example by incorporating climate control systems to ensure humidity and temperature levels are maintained. Other features may include sound-dampening and insulation. This guarantees that the enclosure is an optimal environment for the machinery, and that it will promote efficiency and longevity. Representatives at Aztec Container can help guide you through various customizations to achieve the best result.
Need to switch up operations and move equipment to a different spot? No problem, since one obvious advantage of using shipping containers for machine enclosures is mobility. This is valuable for industries that need flexibility in relocating their equipment. These include construction sites, remote energy projects, or temporary industrial setups which can all clearly benefit from this ease of transport.
The modular nature of shipping container enclosures can allow them to be scale as—important for industries experiencing growth. Because they are both stackable and configurable, these containers can be arranged to create larger enclosures, which can help reduce the need for more construction.
Security may be another concern in industrial settings, and shipping container enclosures offer a solution. The steel construction, combined with the option to integrate security features, creates a barrier against unauthorized access and environmental elements.
