Compact in size, yet sturdy in build – a 10-foot shipping container benefits many organizations as modified storage units, equipment enclosures, and workspaces. The dimensions of a 10-foot shipping container, along with modifications, help make a 10-foot unit perfect for a variety of use cases. Let’s take a closer look.
Even though 10-foot shipping containers are growing in popularity, there are significantly fewer 10-foot containers in circulation than 20-foot or 40-foot containers. Keep this in mind as you plan to use a 10-foot container, it may take additional time to find the right container for your application.
For some applications, a 10-foot shipping container office might be too small, but for others, it’s the ideal size to make the most of limited space. A 10-foot office comes with all the benefits of modified shipping containers – it’s durable, portable, and easy to place where needed – but the 10-foot office creates a private and professional workspace where space is limited. Use a 10-foot office inside a warehouse or on a worksite.
The data for calls, texts, and internet searches travels from cell towers to cabling and switch rooms that form a grid. Tucked beneath each cell tower is equipment for processing and routing this data. Most often, this equipment is simply fenced in, but sometimes it needs the additional security and weather protection of a telecom shelter. 10-foot containers preloaded with racks and HVAC are a fast substitute for concrete Base Transceiver Station (BTS) huts.
There are currently 317 10-foot shipping containers holding oil pipeline monitoring equipment called remote terminal units (RTUs). Instead of constructing an instrument building from cinder blocks for each unit, energy companies can drop off and plug in a 10-foot shipping container equipment enclosure in hours. Containerized RTUs also already have equipment installed and tested, saving technicians time in the field.
Warehouse managers must be thoughtful about how they use square footage. A 10-foot container can sit on a warehouse dock with no site prep while only taking up 80 square feet of space. Install roll-up doors on any wall of the container.
