How Can Onsite Container Conversion Offices Benefit You?

Onsite offices vastly improve your company operations for one main reason: convenience. Having an office onsite increases productivity and speeds up decision making, in addition to providing a comfortable working environment for onsite personnel.
These offices provide the perfect space for those important planning sessions, business x1C;pow-wows x1D; and executive meetings. It cuts out the time wasted by travelling back to your company headquarters, or closest branch, to have the same discussion. Basically, it makes business more lucrative as decisions can be made in a safe, secure environment, and with haste.

In terms of the logistics of container conversions, the process is easy and pain-free. Why bother erecting a temporary structure that may not be completely weatherproof when you could simply position a container, with all the necessary facilities to run your business, in the corner of your construction site, mining plant, or development project? The structure requires no assembly and no foundation, meaning that you can have a fully functioning office in a matter of hours.

Uses for Hired Containers

Containers are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways. The presence of containers in two polar opposite environments is a testament to this versatility. For example, if you gaze across the Johannesburg skyline you x19;ll see shipping containers stacked atop of the Newtown silos in the new Mill Junction student accommodation housing project. Conversely, travel to any farm situated in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands, or around the country for that matter, and you will see containers being used to store food for livestock and farming equipment. It is the simplicity of the container which makes it so brilliant, so adaptable and so practical in so many different situations.
Container King provides container hire services to companies and to members of the public. More often than not companies require extra storage space at some stage during the year. Whether they have a surplus of stock which they need to store away or they are looking at expanding, incorporating the use of containers is an affordable, practical solution to storage problems. Often retail companies will require additional storage space over the holiday seasons to house the surplus of stock which they acquire over these periods, in which case renting a container is the logical solution. It means that the company has sufficient storage space during their busiest times, but does not have to float the cost of a storage container during the off season.

Container rental is a popular option amongst builders, contractors and developers who will be working onsite for a predetermined amount of time. These savvy business owners rent containers for an array of reasons. The containers can be used as additional storage, providing a safe place for equipment to be stored over night. These containers can also be used as a number of added facilities such as onsite office space, ablution blocks, sleeping quarters and canteens. Containers are also available for hire as waste paper bins and garbage facilities.

Our containers have been used by large corporate companies for archiving and storing their files and business records. Containers are also very effective as low-cost change rooms at sporting facilities and tournaments, and can include toilet and shower facilities. Containers are very useful for agricultural, horticultural and equestrian storage.

Renting containers is also extremely beneficial to the individual who is seeking additional storage space for a period of time. If a home owner is renovating then there is a necessity to seek out additional storage, keeping furniture and other personal belongings safe and dust free while the building is in progress. Renting a container provides the home owner with an additional, lock-up space for the duration of the build, giving the home owner peace of mind, knowing that their belongings are safe and out of the way.

All of the above mentioned uses for hired containers are merely examples of how businesses and individuals have used our containers in the past. The beauty of the container is that they are so versatile their limitations extend as far as your imagination. Basically, x1C;If you can dream it, you can do it! x1D; For more information on renting containers please do not hesitate to contact us at Container King where you x19;ll receive top-class, friendly service and valuable advice.

      Convenient Container Ablution Blocks

      Ablution containers are yet another variation of our container conversions, where we take old shipping containers and convert them into hygienic ablution facilities to accommodate guests at a variety of different events. If you are looking for a fast executive toilet hire and effective ablution solutions, the container ablution blocks are exactly what you need.
      Containerised ablution blocks are ideal for event toilet hire at events such as music festivals, film shoots, exhibitions, sporting games, any event where you need to be able to provide ample ablution facilities for your guests. This ablution facility is able to withstand high volumes of traffic while not compromising on hygiene and cleanliness. These facilities are user friendly and can include other added amenities such as showers, additional toilets, urinals and basins. This ensures that your guests are more than comfortable, cutting down extended cues and ultimately making your event more enjoyable.

      There are two types ablution containers, the one which is best suited to you will depend on the location of your event.

      Container Conversions to Onsite Laboratories

      Having a facility which is fully equipped and easily accessible is imperative in most fields of research. However this is not always the case as some research takes place way off the beaten track in hard-to-reach areas and rural communities which do not have access to laboratory facilities. So what does a researcher do if they know that they will be spending six months on location and the closest laboratory is 200km s away?
      At Container King we can provide quality laboratory space through shipping container conversions. These steel containers are robust, durable, weatherproof and extremely secure, meaning that all of your research and samples will be safe from adverse weather conditions and potential vandals. In addition, these containers are easy to transport. For example, say a researcher has been studying a particular species of river plant on the eastern border of the Eastern Cape for the past two months but wants to relocate their laboratory to the western part of the Eastern Cape to compare samples. Now, with a laboratory constructed out of bricks and mortar this would be impossible, but with a container conversion laboratory it is simple. These containers are easy to transport and because of their durable nature they have the longevity to withstand long distance travel.

      Our custom containers act as fully functioning onsite labs and can save the researcher and company millions of Rands in setup and analysis through pre-screening samples onsite. In addition, your turnaround time will improve as you can have a fully functioning lab within hours of arriving onsite, again saving you money. All analysis will be done onsite, meaning that your samples are fresh, as opposed to driving to the closest laboratory and running the risk of contamination in the process.

      These container converted laboratories are not only suited to field study, they can also be used as additional, low cost research space in an industrial area. Containers are extremely versatile, so at the end of the day the containers uses stretch only as far as your imagination can take them. We are proud to say that we tailor each container to our customer s specific needs. We offer a variety of specialised features to suit your particular research requirements. Contact Container King to find out what facility we can offer you, and how it can save you money and improve your research.

      Control Room Container Conversions

      As with our converted laboratories control room container conversions are best suited, but not limited to, rural and hard to reach areas. In the past our containers have been used as control rooms on excavation, mining, development projects and construction sites with great effect.
      The beauty about shipping container conversions is that they are highly affordable. If you had to construct the same facility out of bricks it would be a very expensive endeavour. Similarly, you cannot move a permanent structure, but a converted container can be transported from place to place without compromising on durability. In a sense a container control room is more of a long term solution than actually constructing a building, because it always has the option of redeployment. It is cheaper too and less time consuming. With container conversions you can have a fully operational control room onsite in a matter of hours. In doing this you drastically increase productivity in both the time leading up to the project and in general operations for the duration of the project.

      At Container King we take great pride in being able to deliver exactly what the customer needs. That s why we customise containers to meet your specifications.

      Container Conversions to Affordable Classrooms

      There is currently a growing demand for classroom facilities in South Africa. Container conversions are becoming a popular classroom alternative in schools, particularly in rural areas, which are struggling with space requirements. Sufficient schooling facilities are few and far between and many children have to walk extremely long distances in order to further their education. What is needed are cost effective classroom facilities which can be set up quickly and efficiently which makes classroom shipping container conversions ideal for the South African market.
      Our containers can be delivered as fully functional classroom facilities to those communities suffering from a shortage of school buildings in rural areas. The key aspect to these container classrooms is convenience and affordability.
      They are durable and weatherproof while also possessing the luxury of mobility. This means that they are suited to both long and short term projects as they can simply be redeployed whenever you choose. Building a permanent structure is expensive and time consuming, but a converted container classroom can be set up in a number of hours and include all of the necessary amenities which would be required in your average classroom. These amenities include heating and cooling systems, built in shelves, desks, chairs, overhead projectors and more.
      These extras can be added as per your request as we take great care in working very closely to our customers specifications. At Container King we take great care in designing custom classrooms as a safe and comfortable learning environment for the pupils. We can meet any specifications set out by the customer and take great pride in being able to meet, and very regularly surpass, expectations.

      Container Conversions to Custom Kitchens and Canteens

      Fully functional canteens and kitchens can be custom designed from container conversions to suit your businesses needs. Certain projects and businesses require the necessary facilities to provide their employees and workforce with a cooked meal at lunchtimes. However, building kitchen facilities, especially if the project only runs for a short period of time, can be expensive and impractical. Therefore, cost effective canteen solutions are required by these businesses that have need of fully functional kitchen units with immediate effect.
      Our canteen steel container conversions range from your basic field kitchen to a fully functional industrial kitchen. As always it depends what you are looking for and at Container King we are dedicated to providing you with container conversions that fit your specifications. If you are providing for a small workforce for a short period of time then perhaps the field kitchen will suffice. However, if you are providing lunch for a large workforce over an extended period of time then the industrial kitchen is surely your best bet. These container canteens also work well as lunch rooms for learners in rural areas and will ensure that there is a safe, clean area where food can be made.

      These customised container canteen provide a safe and hygienic place for food preparation. This is absolutely critical as contaminated food could potentially infect your staff, grinding production and productivity to a halt. In many sectors this is simply not an option. Shipping container conversions provide all the amenities necessary for healthy food production. We provide gas cookers, fryers, food prep areas, storage cooking areas and washing up areas. As always we will customise your canteen to your specifications.

      Container conversion canteens are a great idea because of their mobility. Within hours of arriving onsite there can be a fully functional canteen already preparing lunch for employees. Similarly, if the workforce is redeployed elsewhere the container can follow them to the next site. This not only makes it convenient but cost effective too.

      For customised containers and fully functional canteens contact Container King. We will work closely to your design specifications and design the best possible solution for you.

      Container Conversions to Waste Paper and Recycling Bins

      Container conversions are also highly effective when converted into waste paper bins. These bins can house large quantities of paper that needs to be recycled and holds it in one place, out of sight and out of the elements until the paper is collected for recycling.
      Our containers are completely weatherproof meaning that the integrity of the paper is protected from the heat, the cold and the wet. Once paper is wet it disintegrates meaning it is not longer fit for recycling, but if it is housed in a watertight, airtight container it can make it through a hurricane unharmed.

      Not only do our container conversions protect your recyclable paper, but they also make the collection of the paper easier than ever before. We build our units onto an x1C;A x1D; Frame and use a 150mm lipped channel, complete with a hook and lift mechanism, assisted by wheels or rollers, to tip the recyclable paper to the original container doors so it can be loaded and transported away.

      Our waste paper bins are a set design and do not possess as much room for creativity in design as do our other conversions. This is simply because we have found a system that works brilliantly and do not see any need to change it at this time. We will, however, paint your bin for you so as to match the colours of your business.

      Contact Container King today for a quote on our shipping container waste paper bins and commit to a cleaner, greener future. Ensure your business is one that gives back with this environmentally friendly conversion.

      Office containers are available in two formats, namely basic and corporate style. It up to you which package you choose. Your choice will, more than likely, be determined by factors such as the length of time you will be spending onsite on a daily basis, the duration of the project and if you require the office space for meetings and executive planning sessions. If you will be using the office frequently for the above reasons and envision it acting as a secondary command post, then it is undoubtedly more advantageous to select the corporate styling option.

      A corporate style office container can be equipped with all the necessary facilities which you would find in your standard corporate office. Heaters and air-conditioners can be installed, along with shelving, desks, telephones, internet connections, data solutions, tiles and carpets.

      Additional Container Sales Information

      High Cube Containers

      These high cube containers are ideal for transporting high volumes of light weight cargo. This means that you can transport more of the cargo, because of the extra space, but you will not end up being overweight.
      High cube containers are generally suited to dry cargo, and can be ideal for cargo which is too tall to fit into a general purpose container. These containers can carry cargo up to 2.7metres high.

      Reefer Containers

      There are a number of options when it comes to refrigerated containers. The basic reefer container contains an internal refrigeration unit, but this container is heavily dependent on power sources on cargo liners, at the quay, and diesel generators for overland travel. Other refrigeration variations include cryogenic systems which use frozen carbon dioxide or liquid nitrogen. This option is best suited for short journeys. Water cooling systems are highly effective, but also very expensive. Finally for highly temperature sensitive cargo a redundant refrigerator system is use. This basically comprises of a back up refrigeration system which will kick in if the primary system fails.
