You have probably heard of storage containers before, they are becoming an increasingly popular method of industrial storage. They come in many different sizes and can be used for a wide range of applications. A slightly different type is the Cold Storage Container.
Cold Storage Containers are refrigerated with variable temperature controls, they are usually capable of temperatures ranging between -15 degrees to 75 degrees (Fahrenheit). They are quite versatile and can be placed outside or inside at docking height or on the ground. They provide refrigeration that is environmentally friendly (ozone safe).
The larger size containers usually have strong hard wearing floor, this floor is capable of withstanding the weight of forklift trucks which makes them great for industrial uses.
Due to their refrigerating properties Cold Store Units are most suited for applications and industries including fast food chains, pharmaceutical manufacturers, supermarkets, caterers and food processors.
Not only are the containers available as free standing units but cold stores can also be available as trailers, the trailers are extremely portable and can be placed almost anywhere. They come with a tow bar attached and due to their mobility can be towed by pretty much any vehicle with a tow bar. (You do not need a powerful van or truck to transport these units.)
These containers are available for purchase however due to the reasons for using them and the fact they are more than often on a short term basis, a lot of companies offer these out for hire and that seems to be the most popular choice.
