Although the uses of conex (CONtainer EXpress) containers are highly versatile today, they were designed and first used by the U.S. Army in 1952. The system of containers that could protect the contents and be stacked during the shipping process made moving materials and goods around the world faster and more efficient. Today, these shipping containers are used for various purposes. The concept of using these conex boxes is beneficial in multiple ways; they are eco-friendly, affordable and convenient.
One of the alternative uses for these custom conex containers is seen in the construction industry. Due to their mobility, construction companies often use them to store materials and equipment on a site then upon completing the project just move the whole container to the next job site. Containers not only protect materials and equipment from the elements, but they are also secure. Don’t need one for long-term? Have you thought about rental conex containers?
When it comes to the sturdiness and strength, container boxes are unmatchable. Constructed of industrial grade 16-gauge steel, breaking into such container is an arduous task. A container can be the ideal solution for storing tools and equipment on construction sites that are vulnerable to theft. Accessing the equipment, tools and work supplies inside these boxes is a simple task for authorized personnel; it is a matter of unlocking the door with the provided key. Moreover, these containers are easily customizable; adding lights, shelves and new doors are examples.
Apart from storing the equipment and tools securely, construction sites must protect their materials too (for instance, wood, windows, doors, fittings, cabinets, etc.). These materials need to be kept away from potential impacts, such as weather until used. The problem of materials that are temperature sensitive can be addressed by customizing containers with roll-up doors or an HVAC system.
When buying conex containers for material storage, a construction company doesn’t have to worry about extreme weather conditions; these steel boxes are weather resistant and can be enhanced further with climate control techniques.
