Conex Locker Rooms Keep Workers Comfortable, Clean, and Productive
Krista Short

Providing a convenient space for workers to take a break, use the restroom, store valuables and uniforms, clean up, and change clothes is a necessity on remote job sites. So Falcon’s design and engineering team developed a turnkey, 40ft Locker Room and Comfort Station container to address these needs.

Comfort, convenience, and safety were top priorities during the product development process

The oil and gas industry, among others, often use locker rooms at remote locations, spanning several miles, with workers shifting locations every few days or weeks. Access to a comfort station nearby helps keep employees content and enhances productivity.

In addition, many workers are exposed to contaminants on job sites. So our solution needed to double as a decontamination station, where employees could remove personal protective equipment, shower, and changes clothes.

How a mobile restroom project inspired the 40-foot Locker Room shipping container

The inspiration for our new, standard, 40ft Locker Room container presented itself in 2015. A client in the offshore oil construction industry asked for a mobile restroom they could easily move around a job site. Boosting employee productivity and morale were other key goals.

Since ISO shipping containers are inherently mobile and durable, Falcon’s mobile restroom provided the ideal solution for the client’s application. The mobile restrooms are easily repositioned when employees change locations, which reduces downtime needed for bathroom breaks. It also eliminates the need to construct completely new facilities at each location. A plus for both employee and employer. Additionally, employees appreciate the clean, climate controlled environment – something you won’t find in a traditional porta-potty.

Following up with a turnkey locker room and comfort station container was a logical next step.

Over the years, Falcon simplified the art of creating safe, comfortable workspaces for employees. We accomplished this feat by developing and proving in the field, tried and true engineering methods for integrating key comfort and safety features into shipping containers, including:

  • Climate control systems and insulation that can handle extreme weather conditions.
  • Easy-to-clean restrooms with toilets, sinks, and showers (including plug-and-play plumbing).
  • Turnkey lighting and electrical components.
  • Convenient, sturdy personnel doors and privacy windows.

Using the Conex mobile restroom as inspiration, our team identified a host of new Conex shipping container applications focused on employee comfort, safety, and convenience.  Our turnkey, 40ft locker rooms and comfort stations suit applications in industry sectors such as:

  • Oil and gas (natural gas plants, oil field job sites).
  • Construction.
  • Mining. 
  • Industrial plants.
  • Chemical plants.
  • Landscaping, golf courses, and more.

The standard 40ft Locker Room comes equipped with private showers and restrooms located on opposite ends of the shipping container. The central locker room space can be fitted with lockers, benches, charging stations, and other options.

ISO shipping container locker rooms trump traditional job site structures

Compared to other job site locker room structures, ISO shipping containers provide a superior solution. Along with an average 25-year lifespan and ease of relocation, Falcon’s sturdy, Corten steel, modified shipping containers offer several other benefits:

  • Turnkey electrical. With Falcon’s modified shipping containers, we pre-install the electrical components, so you can quickly connect to electricity once your container arrives.
  • Turnkey plumbing. Our shipping container structures allow you to tap into a water supply onsite, so plumbing setup and maintenance are a breeze. No need to mess with costly water tanks, which need constant servicing.
  • No special foundation required. The only requirement is a stable, level piece of ground. In most cases, you won’t need steps, ramps, tie downs, or skirting either.
  • Little ongoing maintenance. Because shipping containers are inherently durable, they require very little up-keep, keeping maintenance costs low.
