3 Ways Temperature-Controlled Storage Can Benefit Your Business

Beating the heat this August is beginning to feel impossible. We all wish we could spend our summer sitting lakeside with a cold drink in our hands, but the truth is our businesses could use some help beating this heat too. Especially when it comes to choosing a temperature-controlled storage solution.

There’s a lot on the line when storing valuable items in this climate. Whether it’s food that could spoil, inventory that needs to be kept at a certain temperature, or even a massive generator that’s responsible for daily production, we are potentially putting our most valuable assets at risk.

What begins as an empty box is transformed into a smart storage solution by adding insulation and the necessary AC unit to keep you and your stuff cool. And while cooling is certainly important, it is only one piece of the puzzle. We need to prioritize accessibility, protection, and employee comfort alongside climate control. This approach is what makes a shipping container the reliable choice.

Here are three ways a shipping container can meet your cooling needs:

Storage Shelving

1. Make Temperature-Controlled Storage Accessible

Climate control is a feature that can be added to any shipping container. But most of our customers also choose to add features such as lighting and additional doors. Not only will the shipping container create a safe climate for your stored items, it will also be easy to access them. More often than not you won’t need additional foundation, therefore you have the added bonus of ground level accessibility.

The thermostat is located right inside the doors, so temperature control is within easy reach. You can even add a personnel door for frequent foot traffic or add shelving to stay organized.

Industrail Storage

2. Use Temperature Control to Protect Valuable Equipment

Even the most sensitive equipment that tends to overheat can be housed in a shipping container. (Yes, you read that right, it will actually be well protected in a metal box under the hot sun). For higher performance, we install industrial capacity 2T HVAC Units and insulation options such as spray foam for industrial applications and mineral wool for fire-resistance and water-repelling requirements. You can feel safe that the cool air will be kept in and any potential threats will be kept out.

3. Add Comfort with Temperature-Controlled Storage

We can’t ignore that our onsite employees experience this intense heat, too. Having temperature-controlled storage will provide some relief to those that frequently use the space. You will keep morale high and productivity flowing. Out of all your valuable assets, you can’t forget to look out for the most important part of your business -- your employees.
