The Conversion Brief

Using a standard 10ft shipping container we converted it into a chemical store for a farmer in North Yorkshire, the container had internal and external modifications to circulate air throughout the container and the chemicals.

Breakdown of the Project

We were approached by a farmer in North Yorkshire who was looking for a bespoke small chemical store due to new regulations.

We took a used 10ft x 8ft x 8ft 6″ container with secure double doors. Fabricated 4no. 300mm x 300mm heavy duty louver vents and fitted these on opposite sides, high and low level to enhance cross air-flow. We overlaid the original 27mm hardwood flooring with 3.5mm chequer plate (fully seam welded). The edges of the chequer plate were raised to 200mm to contain any spillages that may occur.

2 tier steel shelving was fabricated & fitted down one side of the container for storage of drums & other materials. The unit was finished internally in light grey and externally in our traditional dark green. Chemical stores/ storage containers available approx. 2 – 3 weeks from confirmation of order. Contact us for a quotation.
