The Benefits of Climate Controlled Storage

Recently we have had two new clients requiring climate controlled storage to assist with the storage of the items they produce.  The Red Stone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, is a chemical weapons manufacturer. They have been producing chemical weapons since WWII. Red Stone produces rocket and space projects for the US Military. The sensitive equipment they produce needs to be stored a consistent temperature. A climate controlled storage container was the ideal solution.

Another client whose materials are sensitive to temperature was in need of additional storage and the South Texas Nuclear Operating Power Plant contacted us. A 20 foot shipping container modified to include insulation and a cooling unit was ordered to store sensitive materials.

Each of these clients required a consistently regulated temperature controlled environment. Let’s summarize the benefits to using a modified repurposed shipping container as the storage solution.

  • Convenience - These 20 or 40 foot containers are easily delivered to your business’ location and can be stacked if needed. Only a flat surface is required for stability. They can serve as temporary storage and are completely mobile if your location changes.
  • Temperature and Humidity Control - The ability to regulate the interior temperature of the container is facilitated through an A/C unit. Despite the exterior temperature, a consistent regulated interior environment can be maintained through the installation of insulation and a climate controlled cooling unit.
  • Structural Integrity - A repurposed shipping container is built with high grade reinforced steel and provides a completely wind and water tight environment.  Once modified to include the cooling unit and proper insulation, these 20 and 40 foot containers become a useful temporary or permanent structure to protect items sensitive to the environment.

The use of a repurposed shipping container or conex box when a consistent regulated temperature is required for your sensitive items may be the convenient, secure, temperature controlled environment you are looking for.  For more information on Falcon Containers' temperature controlled storage solution, visit our website and our Falcon Cool Box product to view all the features and benefits.
